Sorry for the misunderstanding.
What bugs me is that a good amount of people will still regard Seagal as a badass, skullcrushing, armwrenchin machine.
And that, once more in a internet training forum, Bruce Lee's name is kinda tainted.
If one looks at the video, just sheer amount of choreography and willingness of Seagal's students/victims (practically the same thing) is staggering.
Bruce, on the other hand, sparred full contact(did Seagal ever do that?), created a badass style that's taught around the world today and was a forerunner for MMA.
While not actively participating in regulated combat, he inspired legions of a all kinds of martial artists and athletes.
And of course, he was a cool actor and personality, the first one to be adored by east and west simultaneously.
Quite some achievements, I say.
Seagal has none of that.
Personally, I'd pick Miyamoto Musashi for the MA GOAT.
I don't know another book that transcended time and culture so well, describing essential principles of combat in a no-nonsense style, venturing effortlessly even beyond combat eventually.
For this work, which is his life's crowning achievement, he gets that title from me.
We can also assume that he was rather dope with these japanese sabres - and the wooden ones, too, of course!
