When did this guy become the authority on basically everything combat-related?
I mean, sure his movies were pretty good.....some of them. I liked Under Siege
. Tommy Lee Jones helped out a bit but I liked that movie. I liked On Deadly Ground
and the scene where he clears the bar before playing the slappy hands game with that dude from Dumb and Dumber
But since when has as career full of "straight to DVD" movies ever qualified a guy to be the supreme holder of knowledge in everything relating to violence; including cage fighting, armed warfare, security, and ballistics clothing
A while back I saw him training Anderson Silva. Then I saw him training Lyoto Machida.
, there's an article about how he's training guards in Arizona schools against possible armed gunmen.
Ok, alright. He's held a few prop guns in his career and dodged more bullets than Neo......maybe he could teach them a thing or two, or at least inspire some of these guys in some manner. I'll buy it. Although, not sure I buy the heavy winter coat and scarf down in Arizona.
But browsing YouTube I saw a video about bullet proof clothing. I figured, "why not". In the description it says the guy who makes these clothes is the personal tailor for Steven Seagal. There's no way that's just coincidence. I think this guy is walking around in bullet proof clothes. I'd post it but the makers of this clip typically don't censor stuff and it's about 10 minutes long so theres a good chance it's got some language. The title is "Bulletproof Clothing" and just search "Vice" with it to see it.
Just unbelievable. This guy acts his entire career and all of a sudden he's the go-to on everything combat. I have no doubt that he's skilled in some fashion. He's got the history to suggest he can fight. Pretty sure he lived and taught in Japan for some time so the cage fighting might be at least a theoretical fight? Counter terrorism training and bullet proof clothing.........stretching it a bit.
I dunno, just seems funny to me. But, I'll tell ya one thing. If he's only half as good at these things as he is at combating a weak hairline, he might just be the best guy in the world for the job.
