About 10 years ago VD challenged Segal. VD was a kick boxer, nothing more, nothing less. Segal is a 7th Dan in Akido and is the highest ranking American. So you tell me who would win
Despite his claims, VD is not and never was a kickboxer. He trained in Shotokan Karate in Brussels. Segal is a 7th dan in Humbo (Aikikai?) Aikido. He is not and never was the highest ranked Aikidoka in the US. There are several 8th and 9th dan Aikdoka in Humbo, Yushinkai, and other Aikido branches across the US and Canada.
