    I found this rather interesting. I'm sure most of you knew about it, but I have to confess I did not. I knew Steven's son was Kentaro; I just didn't know he was an actor/model who has appeared in several films. Below is a link to a website for him.

    The younger of the two brothers, Tatsuo is tall and He is also well endowed, measuring in at a whopping 32.4 cm (12.75 inches)!
    Kentaro Seagal, son of Hollywood star Steven Seagal, makes his Japanese debut with this film.His eyes are sharp like a beast's, but in the film, the naive sensitivity that lies hidden behind them shimmers forth.

    Interesting that both of his children by Miyako have rejected their father's name. I guess one could assume that they want to make it on their own, or.... (TD self edits to avoid getting yelled at).

    I believe that is because Sensei adopted the familiy name, and his children carry it on.

    TD--I didn't understand what you meant by rejecting his father's name. At a few hundred places on Google where his movies are mentioned, including several websites with his personal bio and the website I posted the link for, everything I've seen has the name "Kentaro Seagal", with no other name mentioned. Have I missed something somewhere (which wouldn't surprise me a bit :D)?

    On Charak's site which Suzi noted above, it has the most up-to-date information, and there it says that Kentaro has officially changed his name to Take Kentaro, and is no longer known as Kentaro Seagal.

    Disciple come get some

    It's cool that he's following in the old man's tradition of Aikido.

    I bet he's tougher than Sage Stallone. :D

    Thanks for the info, Serena...
    I didn't know about most of that...
    Maybe they want to make their way in the career world without the name...
    I really hope Steven doesn't take that too personally, I would be proud to share his name...
    Not to say that they aren't...
    Maybe they aren't close to their dad, I always felt that Sensei being an American had something to do with the break-up of his marriage to their mother...
    And the family is very important in Japan, her family was the reason she really wanted to stay there I guess...
    Nice looking children, and nice looking parents, but I still think they look like their mother the most...

    almost from the horse's mouth

    It was Miyako that told me that Kentaro changed his name to Take Kentaro. I didn't even inquire; she just wrote to me with that info. So I'm impressed with that! She also sent a picture to me from his high school graduation. It was so out of the blue!

    Some of you may remember that I put on my website last year that Kentaro was at an Oomoto seminary. He left the seminary last October. He was probably there for a year or so. Maybe it was during that time that his name was officially changed? So I'm not sure.

    It also seems that he is *not* as active in Aikido as his parents are. And he is totally "retired" (as I'm told) from acting. So now he is pursuing a career in art. Kentaro listed on his mother's website all of these art awards that he won in the U.S. (He was advertising about a class that he was starting, and listed his credentials.) But it was all in Japanese, and my machine translator did a crummy job of translating it. But I was impressed with the list, nonetheless!
