    Hello:
    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.

    Thanks

    Hallo RK

    The Style that Steven use is Jet Kune Do, he has the 3. Dan in JKD!!!
    His own Aikidostyle called "Kisei Aikido" is a combination of JKD and the "old hard Aikidostyle" from Master Morihei Ueshiba.

    I am wondering where you got this JKD information at, because I do not think he has trained JKD and JKD does not issued dan ranking!!!

    Bruce Lee invented Jeet Kune Do and Seagal has not trained in it as far as I am aware. He has studied and holds black belts in Aikido (obviously), Karate, Kendo and Judo amongst others.

    rekap,
    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

    No that is not correct, he has does not hold a rank in jkd, there are no ranks in jkd like that.

    His official rankings are: 7th Dan in Aiki kai- Aikido

    holds black belts in ****o-ryu karate under fumio demura, kenjitsu, and judo.

    He also has studied knife fighting which is called penjack silat.

    Whatever style he uses, he has trained well in it, I do ninjutsu and put in 4hrs a day to keep well balanced

    runningbear,
    good to meet you. I am a scholastic student of various martial arts and qi gong breathing exercises and books. How has ninjutsu helped you thus far in your spirit and life?

    Really interesting...Although what I see in Urban Justice and his three latest is his classic mixture between Aikido and Karate.

    I´m black belt in both styles because of him, and is very clear his style.

    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

    Exactly :) Besides that, he has trained Kung Fu and a Tai Chi, but what ranks he holds in those two I don't know at all :)
