Steven Seagal: Master of Slap Fighting

Since there’s no interesting news today, let’s keep on watching Steven Seagal be delusional. Earlier, I posted an interview with Seagal which mentioned he was sparring with light heavyweight Feijao which gave me pause because, in it, Karyn Bryant mentioned he got a couple of good “slaps” in. Interesting if only for the fact that you don’t slap in sparring. Turns out that’s still the case. Unless you’re Steven Seagal. The sparring session is below.

Looks like Steven gave Feijao a lesson in Slap-Fu, the ancient art of sissy fighting.

Then there’s this interview with Ariel Helwani where Steven Seagal isn’t sure if he was being mocked or not. Helwani is fantastic at subtlety.

Moves that people thought were illegal but really aren’t? Hmm. Could it be? Could we see UFC’s first KO by Power Bitch Slap? That Steven Seagal. Such an innovator!

There’s so much arrogance in mma. The notion of a sixth degree black belt in aikido teaching an mma fighter a few techniques isn’t at all ridiculous.

Aikido? Lol, what a useless art, show ne ONE time where it was used successfully against a skilled RESISTING opponent. You’re just another member of a dying cult.

You dont know anything about martial arts if you are so disrespectful to Steven Seagal. If you can accomplish what he has in Aikido then prove it. like it or not he is a respected icon in the martial arts.

UFC/MMA folks are always disrespectful of other arts and they never imagine that they could be beaten. Seagal really is a 7th degree black belt in Aikido. And he trained in Japan in the old school Aikido schools with the family that started Aikido. Seagal knows a thing or 2 about fighting and self defense. So because he was going easy on a guy,he is a sissy? I always thought rolling around on the ground like a little bitch was sissy fighting? In fact,grappling by definition is not fighting at all but rather a way to avoid fighting-just like when… Read more »

UFC/MMA folks? Never heard of them. I am familiar however with Brazilian jiu jitsu, judo, wrestling, Sambo, boxing, muay thai practitioners and few of them are impressed by bulshido martial arts like Aikido.

I mean the video is clearly a light hearted demo. Not a street fight. It’s not sissy fighting,it’s called a DEMONSTRATION.

To the lame writer of this article on which we’re commenting: they weren’t actually sparring, lamer!!! They were just playing around. ((roll eyes)) If they were SPARRING, Seagal would have changed out of his street clothes and put on an outfit appropriate to that, and he would have used harder contact pressure, and would probably have flipped the other guy over a few times. Regardless, we both know all of those slaps to the head could have been strikes to nerve centers or fists to the face, and were slaps to the head only because Seagal was just playing around.… Read more »

The guy is a 7th Dan. He can do a lot of damage if he wants.
