Video: Steven Seagal is teaching Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida 'Ashi Sabaki'

"I am teaching Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida. I show them, you know, a lot. Not everything I know, but I show them punches and what we call Ashi Sabaki, which means how you move with your feet, how you enter, hand angles, joints, but mostly I'm teaching them kicks and punches. There is a signature kick that I've taught them that they've knocked champions out with and won world championships with. I'm asking them to kick to the face and the head with that kick. I don't think it hurts because you're asleep. It might hurt when you wake up."

It's asylum day here at MMAmania, as I've worked hard to bring you consecutive posts from delusional fighters who may have suffered one too many blows to the head. That includes aging Aikido master Steven Seagal, who recently told Jimmy Kimmel Live he's still training Brazilian butt-kickers Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida. While both "The Spider" and "The Dragon" have famous front kicks on their resumes (Vitor Belfort and Randy Couture, respectively), neither fighter has secured the gold using Seagal's secret kick. Nevertheless, it hasn't stopped him from getting some more mileage out of his association with Blackhouse MMA, but it will be interesting to see if he makes an appearance at UFC 147 for Silva's title defense against Chael Sonnen on June 23 in Brazil.
