Die Hard Seagal fan!
Steven Seagal Sensei controls many martial arts, but Steven Seagal senseis primarely martial art he has studied and controls is Aikido with the Aikikai style.

He has studied this martial arts at a young age, and he has an 7th Dan degree in it, he also a master = sensei! But Seagal denys that he is a master already...

I hope I could have help you a bit, and I want to welcome you on The Unofficial Steven Seagal Forums! And I want to thank you for your intrest in Martial Art!

It appears to my scholastic studies, dvd, and vhs viewings of Steven Seagal that he u

ses internal or soft art techniques(bagua, hsing i, tai chi) to his displays in his recent films
Especially when his hands form open palm strikes to the aggressors in his movies
These are highly developed forms of self defense which involve the study of esoteric energy or chi development that improves one's martial arts practitions
Doesn't he do ju-jutsu, karate and other martial arts as well? Anyway, his fighting style is unique and I have noticed these techniques you refer to in his recent films take-sensei, they look cool!

Hi Mama san,

Many thanks for providing those above weblinks that take us to both comprehensive and great websites regarding Steven Seagal, as they are
exactly both the type and quality of websites that I had been originally looking for, but didn't come across during my last internet search. Although, one good thing did come out of my last internet search, which is that I actually came across your forum for the first time!
I remember reading an article years ago where it was claimed that Seagal held black belts in 7 different Martial Arts, with Aikido and Tai Chi being the ones he teaches. He has definately studied Kali, Karate, Judo and Kendo... Given the amount of time he spent in Japan in his younger days I can fully believe the 7 black belts claim.
steven has studied aikido obviously,karate do,judo,kendo,kenjutsu,kali (weapon and empty hand forms) hes also studied a few chinese systems which are evident in some of his later movies although no one knows what chinese systems but probably wing chun,tai chi and the soft internal arts


Martial Art Student
Seagal has studied....AIKIDO, KARATE and JUDO!!!!!!!! Kenjutsu (swordwork) is practiced in Aikido, as well as Jo work. He may have dabbled in other things, but these are THE ARTS he has studied to a more extensive (than dabbling) degree.
