Hello human. Thank you for being on the channel.
In this particular video, I’m going to be discussing Jean-Claude Van Damme versus Steven Seagal.
Um, Jean-Claude Van Damme has been in a lot of martial arts movies, a lot of action movies. The same goes for Steven Seagal. I’m currently 31 years old and I’ve been watching martial arts action movies since I was a little kid. So, I’m very, uh, experienced in terms of knowing uh, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal in those particular genres of film.
Uh, Jean-Claude Van Damme is a real martial artist and so is Steven Seagal. Jean-Claude Van Damme, knows karate, kickboxing, Muay Thai and taekwondo. Jean-Claude Van Damme is known as ‘The Muscles’ from Brussels, from Brussels, Belgium. And Steven Seagal has a 7th Dan Black belt in aikido. Steven Seagal also knows karate, kendo and judo.
Okay. Um, there are a lot of humans that when they speak about Steven Seagal, they do so in a disrespectful fashion. And a lot of that has to do with some of the stuff that Steven Seagal brought on himself in terms of lying about random things and just really exhibiting odd behavior during interviews. So, Steven Seagal brought a lot of that onto himself but make no mistake, regardless of Steven Seagal’s lies, random lies, some of the silly stuff he said, does not change the fact that he is a very, very good martial artist, okay? So, don’t let your feelings get in the way and make you automatically go against Steven Seagal because of the silliness he has portrayed over the years.
Now when it comes to Jean-Claude Van Damme, uh, versus Steven Seagal, I think that first we’re going to look at a young Van Damme and a young Seagal. And then we’ll look at how they currently are today.
Um, in terms of Van Damme and Seagal, uh, in their prime I think that Steven Seagal would take Jean-Claude Van Damme in a fight. Um, I’m not saying that it would necessarily be easy but I think that Steven Seagal would come out on top because of his use of aikido, which is using the opponent’s momentum against them, a whole lot of joint locks and snapping of the limbs, and then you factor in judo which is tossing motherf*ckers around, he really doesn’t even have to get to his karate or kendo.
You know, uh, Van Damme using, uh, karate, kickboxing, a lot of punches, kicks, Muay Thai. You got the knees, elbows included in certain punches and kicks and then taekwondo. While you have some punches and some grappling movements, you know, taekwondo is mostly known for its kicking. A lot of different kicks. And a lot of what Van Damme knows Steven Seagal has been trained to use those things against, uh, his opponents, you know. Using their momentum when they throw punches and kicks, snapping the arm, snapping the legs, tossing them around, as you have seen in Steven Seagal’s films.
So, Van Damme, uh, and Steven Seagal can beat up a lot of humans around the world. But we’re talking about Van Damme in his prime versus Steven Seagal in his prime. I think that, um, by the time the fight is over, you will see that Steven Seagal is the victor of that exchange. Now, when you look at Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal today, uh, Jean-Claude Van Damme is in great shape. Like he didn’t miss a beat. Steven Seagal is very overweight, very overweight, fat which will be problematic when it comes to a fight. So, I think that Van Damme and Seagal today that Van Damme would have a better chance of winning because he is in better shape, because Steven Seagal will be a lot slower, because he’s really overweight. So, he may not be able to pull off the victory in the same way that he would if he were in his prime. Um, so, I think that um, today Van Damme would definitely stand a better chance against Seagal.
It’s hard for me to say who would win today if they were to come across each other. If Seagal wins, that wouldn’t surprise me. But Van Damme being in better shape, able to move quicker, throw more kicks and punches, maybe Seagal will get worn out quicker because he’s not in the shape that he could be in. I don’t know why Steven Seagal has decided to get overweight, uh, but hey, you know, it’s up to him for what he wants to look like. I’m not, uh, bashing him at all but as a martial artist, regardless of how old and how established you get, you should be taking care of yourself. That’s all part of being a martial artist. So, it is odd to me that Steven Seagal would let himself go that much but make no mistake.
If you try to run up on Steven Seagal or Jean-Claude Van Damme, odds are you are going to get your sh*t wrecked bad and you’re going to be in the hospital thinking about how f*cking stupid you are for thinking that you could take either Steven Seagal or Jean-Claude Van Damme. I don’t care how old they get, don’t just go up to them and think you could do something. You stop filling yourself. You ain’t trying to have either one of them because you don’t get your sh*t wrecked, it doesn’t matter.
Uh, so, I have great respect for both these guys. I’ve seen a lot of their movies and uh, this is an interesting discussion for me that I’ve had over the course of my life. Whenever we are talking about Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal, I’m a fan of both. Between the two which one do I like more? It’s really hard for me to decide, you know. I feel like you can ask me on Monday, and I’ll say Van Damme, you ask me on Tuesday, I can say, uh, Seagal. So, you know regardless of their troubles that they’ve had over the years, I still respect and like both of them a great deal.
Thank you for being here human. Until next time, Terance out.
