I was wondering if anyone could tell me the style that Steven Seagal is using when he does the fast hand hitting techniques? The close in slapping and hitting movements. I'm tempted to say it looks like a form of Win Chung.
i'm not certain, but i'd lay money down that Sensei Steven Seagal incorporates leopard fist, tiger claw, kenpo, baguazhang, xingyiquan, tai chi chuan, taijiquan('silk reeling energy or 'coiling spring' energy) technique in his most recent dvd movies. One can't deliver powerful slaps. kicks, and punches without chi/ki/ 'flowing energy' development in their martial art exercises from what i've read in qi gong or chi kung masters and instructors and students. In the new movie of Steven Seagal's "Urban Justice", he holds one of his defending hands in the form of a kenpo readiness while going up against the skinhead dudes in the 'open lot' or alley fight scene, very similar to Jeff Speakman's Kenpo hand techniques
steven seagal gets his fast blocks and strikes from ****o ryu karate and of course uses his aikido and other styles. If you look at his blocks they are soft open hand blocks typicaly associated with ****o ryu and his strikes are hard and hit soft parts of the body again associated with ****o ryu karate
