Surprisingly good. I think Seagal showed off some banjo playing in one of his movies. I think it was called "Beating Oil workers To Death", or something like that.
I played those links to a really great martial artist. Mitsugi Saotome. A really awesome man and Aikidoist. I'd take his seminars whenever he was in town. He is self proclaimed or proclaimed by O'Sensei as 'enlightened'. A difficult concept for Westerners to chew on.
He had such a wonderful 'air' about him. Very friendly, superb stylist, effortless, soft, inventive, fantastic within form and without.
There is a 3 part series about him on the tube, here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xUsIebygrE
I was never really drawn to Saotome though I respect him for sure. If I could pick anyone in Aikido to study with it would be the guy who just moved to my town. Gonna see my doc here shortly if everything checks out ok hopefully I'll be back on the mat soon.
