Martial Arts and Children:
He was born on April 10, 1952 in Lansing, Michigan. When he was five, he moved to Fullerton, California, with his parents Patricia and Samuel. He attended Buena Park High School and Fullerton College from 1970 to 1971.
He started learning Shito-Ryu karate and aikido as a child. Seagal first visited Japan at seventeen, encouraged by a friendly Japanese employee at a Garden Grove dojo. In 1974, he met Miyako Fujitani, the Osaka aikido master’s daughter teaching in Los Angeles. Miyako also had a 2nd degree black belt. Seagal joined her in Osaka, where he taught at her family’s school (he is often stated to have been the first non-Asian to open a dojo in Japan).
He returned to Taos, New Mexico, to open a dojo with his student Craig Dunn. In 1983, he constructed an aikido dojo in West Hollywood, California, with trainee Haruo Matsuoka. They parted in ’97.
Seagal left his colleagues in control of their dojos and pursued other interests, including Hollywood action films. Seagal began making key Hollywood connections, which led to gigs in films like “The Challenge” and “Never Say Never Again.” In 1988, he made his cinematic debut in Andrew Davis’ “Above the Law”. It was a hit, spawning “Hard to Kill,” “Marked for Death,” and “Out for Justice” (1991). All of these films were box office hits, enhancing his action hero image. His breakthrough came in Andrew Davis’ 1992 picture “Under Siege.” The picture made $156.4 million worldwide. Seagal made his directorial debut in 1994 with “On Deadly Ground”. The film (in which he also co-starred) dealt with spiritual and environmental issues. Critics hated it, but Seagal sees it as a career-defining moment.
His next film, “Under Siege 2: Dark Territory,” is a sequel to his biggest hit, “Under Siege.” The Glimmer Man (1996) and “Fire Down Below” (1996) were also released in the late 1990s (1997). In 1998, he made his first direct-to-video feature, “The Patriot,” which was shot on and around his Montana property. Except for “Machete” (2010), he has only worked in the direct-to-video format since late 2001. (DTV). Urban Justice (2007), Kill Switch (2008), Pistol Whipped (2008) and A Dangerous Man (2009) are just a few of his DTV projects he’s recognised as producer and screenwriter on (2010).
Seagal’s career has spanned both film and television. In 2009, he starred in “Steven Seagal: Lawman” on A&E, and in 2011, he produced and acted in “True Justice,” a 13-part reality series. Seagal has a strong music career, with songs appearing in several of his films. His two albums feature Stevie Wonder and Tony Rebel songs.
Seagal formed Seagal Enterprises. The company debuted “Steven Seagal’s Lightning Bolt” in 2005, however it has since been discontinued. He’s pushed aftershave and a knife brand. Import restrictions on Russian sports weapons were relaxed in 2013 when he joined newly formed Russian gun manufacturer ORSIS to promote the brand.
Seagal is a dual citizen of the USA, Serbia, and Russia. He owns land in Louisiana, Colorado, and California. Seagal has seven kids from four marriages. His first marriage, Miyako Fujitani, had two children. Seagal abandoned her in Japan and returned to the US, so they divorced.
A year after divorcing Fujitani, he briefly married actress Adrienne La Russa, but the marriage was annulled. Kim Basinger’s kid was born in early 1987 to actress Kelly LeBrock. They had two more kids before divorcing in 1994. After marrying Erdenetuya “Elle” Batsukh, he had one child.
Seagal utilised his social media accounts in early 2018 to promote “Bitcoin2Gen,” a cryptocurrency. For the US Securities and Exchange Commission, this means he failed to disclose that he had been “promised” $250,000 in cash and another $750,000 in Bitcoin2Gen to promote the cryptocurrency’s IPO (SEC).
He agreed to pay disgorgement and penalties of $157,000 without “admitting or disputing” the SEC’s claims. For three years, he promised not to promote any cryptocurrency or security on social media.
