He claims that the moment of truth in his career was when they attempted to relegate him to a lower-paid, minor role, and he insisted on being paid the same as Chuck Norris, because he had at least the same level of skill.

During the war he served in the US Coast Guard, marrying the actress Susan Peters in November of 1943. In the Aikido Magazine interview, he said he developed his film contacts through students at his dojo. He began his acting career aged eleven on Broadway, and appeared in his first film in 1934 - John Ford's The World Moves On.

Richard Quine (November 12, 1920 - June 10, 1989) was an American stage, film, and radio actor and film director. If he was in Southern California in 1973, then he may have spent as long as fourteen years in Asia.

one or two years before 1988 when he was associated with his first movie, the police drama Above the Law. He was definitely in the U.S. His film bio says he was in Asia for about 15 years. At various points, Seagal has hinted that he has worked as a bounty hunter and a CIA operative, although he has later denied it.

He also claimed that several Tibetan lamas suffering from malnutrition and abuse were sent to him, and he helped establish a safe house for them. In an interview in November 1997 for the Shambala Sun, he claimed to have developed his life-long interest in zen originally through a study of acupuncture. In 1984, he wed former Days of Our Lives actress Adrienne La Russa, but annulled the marriage when news of his marriage to Miyako (and, by extension, his bigamy) came to light. At this time, he married Miyako Fujitani but eventually left for America without her, pretending that he was not married at all.

At some time later, he opened a martial arts school in Japan, the first westerner to do so. He is said to have become adept at all of them. In practice, when he threw me, I couldn't feel his hands, which means that he was very skillful at blending ki." In Japan, Seagal taught English, and studied zen, aikido, kendo, judo and karate. He tended to wear some weird striped robe thing that Japanese Deer Park asked him to wear.

Ray's memory of him may be worth nothing, "He would come to Wednesday night practice. Ray Van De Walker claims to have met Steven Segal at the Orange County Aikikai, a prominent aikido dojo, around 1974, where he was known as "Steve, who gives demos at Japanese Deer Park." It seems unlikely that a 17-year old, a minor in the U.S., would be allowed to emigrate to Asia. However, this is inconsistent with an interview he gave in Aikido Magazine, in which he claimed to have given demonstrations in Japanese Deer Park (a former small amusement park in Southern California) in "the early 70s". His official film Bio claims that he went to Japan at the age of 17.
