So ever since Steven Seagal took the MMA scene by storm by training both Anderson Silva and Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida, he's been a highly controversial figure to say the least. Not only is there video evidence on said training sessions, but both fighters have publicly thanked Master Seagal for giving them tips every now and then, no big deal, guys. Now the important point to make here is that nobody is claiming Steven's is anyone's main coach or game planner, he simply gives out a few pointers to fighters he likes. Now of course, this being the promised land of the "Just Bleed" fans rather than actual martial artists, it was no surprise that the haters came out of the woodwork and started to hate on Master Seagal on force never seen before on the Sherdog forums, man. That brings me to present day and the infamous training session between Seagal and DC. You see, guys, a lot of people were asking me whether Seagal is "for real" or not and while I refused to pen down any kind of response here on Sherdog forums, man, I must admit that I had a sly smile on my face when I heard the type of negative response Steven Seagal was having from the haters all around the Internet, guys. You see, I knew better and let me break it down for you guys because while Steven's out of shape these days and while he ain't the best dancer when it comes to my ethnic, traditional courting dance (from my mother's side), we've all seen the clip no big deal, he's still a GREAT teacher. He's got a way to convey complex techniques in a short amount of time while giving the fighters the confidence to try them out in a real life situation. At the end of the day, DC pulling off an aikido technique, once thought to be impossible to perform against a real martial artist after only a very short training period makes it clear that Steven Seagal knows his stuff. And while the technique in question is very rudimentary aikido and DC is one hell of a grappler, what makes this whole throw impressive is the fact that DC pulled it off against the BEST POUND FOR POUND fighter in the WORLD. Think about that for a moment guys. Oh yeah, it's real. Here's the technique discussed.
