I respect Jesse Enkamp much more than Steven Seagal. The "training sessions" with Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida might have been nothing more than publicity opportunities for Steven Seagal. It's a shame, really. He had the world in his hands after his early movies.
Personally, I think that Silva & Machida were just starstruck and they're hoping for a possible movie/acting career after their bodies failed them after all of that abuse. I mean, I can say crap about Seagal online but if I saw him in person, I'd be starstruck too and will beg for a picture.
His first 3 movies were really good. It gave a new perspective into the MA Action Movies; before that it was usually all Kung-Fu or Karate. I still enjoy his 1st movie.
One from a couple of the known Mob Bosses or Hitman (on Youtube) said that he's beholden to the Mob....as in, he made some deal w/them to save his life (from something) = keep pumping out crappy movies for them. That's why it doesn't even look like he cared about any of them, at 1-3 per year, for the past 15+ years straight!
Then I bet there's a bunch of "MeToo" situations that he's avoiding possible criminal prosecution from, by immigrating to Russia.
