A moment of silence for Steven Seagal's crapped underwear and pants, ca. mid to late 80's/early 90's.


pistcow

Grab my wrist...no my other wrist.


RhymesWith_DoorHinge

No, MY other wrist


Solstus22

bow to your sensei...


RhymesWith_DoorHinge

BOW TO YOUR SENSEI!


Solstus22

OK... Now I'm gonna give you one chance, one chance people... Give it your best best shot.


Calboss79

You think anybody wants a roundhouse to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys? Forget about it!


GlassSheepherde

I love how every time he‘s mentioned someone has to tell the story how Steven Seagull shit his pants. xD R.I.P to a Legend


thejonslaught

As I recall, that was 1990-91 on the set of *Out for Justice*. There’s another great story from that set about Seagal telling William Forsythe that he needed to work on his sub-par Brooklyn accent. William Forsythe was born and raised in Bed-Stuy.


ForkShirtUp

Can't help but feel this and Seagal's recent appearance are related


YiffZombie

Seagal finally feels safe to come out from his hole.


nicktorious_

Literally just saw the video yesterday of Freddie Prinze Jr talking about Gene choking out Seagal for assaulting his stunt men

I love JBL laughing along with that story as if he weren't just as big of a prick as Seagal.


Ironborn_62

"YOU GOTTA LOVE IT MAGGLE!!!"


dk745

Replace Steven Seagal with JBL and replace Gene LeBell with Steve Blackman and it’s the same exact story


RhymesWith_DoorHinge

Same

TavisNamara

Holy fuck, that's on the same level as the Corden one.


QLE814

Given his reputation, we'd be disappointed if it weren't on that level....


ours

It's only got worst. He was recently seen as a Russian spoke person.


Comic_Book_Reader

He's had Russian citizenship for some years now. And is seemingly best buds with Vlad.


QLE814

Feels like he's been doing that for at least a decade at this point, and possibly longer than that....


shirttailsup

Came here to let people know he’s the guy who choked out Steven Seagal and made him shit himself on the set of Under Siege


Michael_Blurry

Somebody just mentioned this in a post about Seagal yesterday. Such odd timing.


spin_me_again

RIP Judo Gene, thank you for fucking Steven Seagal’s shit up when you could.


Adidos26

Comic_Book_Reader

While we're at it, Seagal was apparently a martial arts instructor on Never Say Never Again, and unbeknownst to him until years later, broke Sean Connery's wrist.


QLE814

Did Sean ever get revenge?


OzymandiasKoK

No, Seagal shit his own pants.


Uglyheadd

LeBell's ghost going over to RuZZian occupied Ukraine tonight to choke Steven Seagal in his sleep.


TappedIn2111

‚Vladimir, my friend. The strangest thing happened last night in my bedchamber. I woke up gasping for air and shat my bed.‘ ‚Have you been poisoned?‘ ‚Why would get poisoned here? Under your roof?‘ ‚Right. That never happens. Might be cancer.‘ ‚I got people checking my butt 24/7.‘ ‚That’s weird. Oh, look, Gene LeBell died.‘ - choking intensifies -

^ This is a copy paste bot, scroll down in the thread if you want proof. Downvote him.


A_Song_of_Two_Humans

As soon I read the name the first thing that sprung to mind was 'wasn't that the guy that made Seagal shit himself?' For that alone I thank him and may he RIP.


RecoveringHeights

He was also the inspiration for Cliff Booth!


O_o-22

Please tell me there’s video of him shitting his pants


MarvelsGrantMan136

LeBell was a part of over 1,000 tv and film productions: >On the big screen, he did stunts, often uncredited, for the original Planet of the Apes movies, the 1974 disaster films Earthquake and The Towering Inferno and the Naked Gun flicks, plus King Kong (1976), Airplane! (1980), Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (1985), RoboCop (1987), Total Recall (1990), Independence Day (1996), Bruce Almighty (2003) and Smoking Aces (2006). [Article](https://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news/gene-lebell-talks-steven-seagal-s-ing-himself) of Gene talking about Steven Seagal shitting his pants while in a chokehold


WorldsWeakestMan

Also taught Bruce Lee how to grapple as Lee wanted to improve as a fighter and was good at striking but saw Gene as an authority on grappling.


Lamont-Cranston

It wasn't because Lee wanted to improve, it was because LeBell was brought onto The Green Hornet to 'settle down' Lee who wasn't pulling his punches with the other stuntmen. So after throwing him around the set and carrying him around his shoulders for a bit Lee calmed down and they became friends and showed each other techniques.


meatball402

>"Closed mouth don't catch any foot" Yup.


IM_INSIDE_YOUR_HOUSE

Isn’t this the guy who made Seagal shit himself


Music_City_Madman

I’m a simple man, i see this story, i upvote it.


Consistent-Ad-217

Steven Seagals asshole just unclenched again.


Channel5exclusive

Maybe not. Ronda Rousey offered to make him shit his pants again if he had the balls to talk shit about Judo Gene to her face.


SpecificAstronaut69

He could challenge her to an acting competition.


Channel5exclusive

That might be the only way he could beat her.


SpecificAstronaut69

Though he really shouldn't, of course. Challenging Rousey to an acting comp is like challenging Ray Charles to a game of darts.


Channel5exclusive

Blind Darts. That should be an Olympic sport lol.


Renegade-Pervert

As a sign of respect I'm going to pass out and shit myself.


KragBru-

Hey this guy is a legend. Done a lot of great things. The least of which was choking out that shitstain Steven Segal on set till he passed out and shit himself... ( in response to Steven refusing to lay off the stunt professionals and hitting them his hardest each take.)


Mowgliinflares

He was so kind and eager to teach everything he knew. He taught me a few times and was ever so patient. I’ll miss him


SemiFeralGoblinSage

My dad has a bunch of black belts and trained with a lot of people who are famous now so as a kid I ended up getting dragged to a lot of these places meeting a bunch of world champion martial artists, but Gene was the one guy who really stood out. He was a real character and a sweet man. He threw me around like I was a rag doll, and then had me laughing when he did the same to my 6’2 dad. Only met him a few times, but they were all memorable.


Mowgliinflares

What great memories we have!


Tybold

Must have been a rewarding experience, being taught by a student of Karl Gotch and Lou Thesz. I'm sorry for your loss.


Mowgliinflares

Thank you, the loss is all of ours, he was so well loved


ChiBurbNerd

I always heard he was vicious to his uke's and people learned quickly to only let gene demonstrate something on you once.


Flat-Photograph8483

For some reason that’s my experience with a lot of old catch wrestlers. It’s the price you pay to learn I guess hah


superman306

Old school


Rufus2fist

He was also Bruce Lees teacher in grappling and judo moves for years. They had a great respect/comradery with each other. Gene would pick up lee in a head lock and carry him around.


Davethisisntcool

This guy trained Bruce Lee and Bryan Danielson?! Legend


TheTrueRory

Pretty soon we'll have no one left from that era, a generation of masters of their craft gone.


TizonaBlu

Wow, I literally was just reading about him yesterday in a topic about Steven Siegel being in Ukraine. Ended up watching a few videos about him. Unlike what in Once Upon, dude’s actually friends with Bruce Lee. RIP, guys a legend!


NbAlIvEr100

Same here, so fucky.


Shekamaru

Steven seagull can finally relax, he no longer has to worry about shitting himself from a headlock from Mean Gene.


Singer211

Steven Seagal can finally unclench his buttcheeks again.


CacoFlaco

Judo Gene LeBell. Son of legendary Olympic Auditorium promoter Aileen Eaton. Known for decades as the world's toughest man. And it was no exaggeration. I'm shocked that even Death could take him down. RIP Judo Gene.


EnvironmentalNature2

At last , Seagal can wash his poop stained underwear.


Braceforit86

I met him in ‘96…the next year I met Rickson Gracie.


Papichuloft

Hollywood and also the Martial Arts world......both have lost a great legend.


grimdarkPrimarch

Paging u/stevenseagalOFFICIAL Did you shit your pants today in remembrance?


JColeTheWheelMan

I'm paraphrasing but I believe Gene was also the guy who showed Bruce Lee how useless his standup game was against someone who could grapple. There is the embellished scene in Once upon a time in Hollywood that is somewhat based on this. I believe Gene was a stuntman and showed Bruce a bunch of basic grappling which caused Bruce to rethink some of his approaches to fighting.


MegaUltra9

Betcha Steven Seagal is happy about this. Pos phony


fletch0083

He also awarded Roddy Piper his Judo black belt and coached Ronda Rousey… On top of making Seagal shit himself, which must always be mentioned


smokintritips

Judo Gene. Og for sure.


HaMMeReD

Sad, I met him a couple decades ago as he is a distant family member, my grandma was closer with him and had a bunch of memorabilia.


axck

Appreciate that everybody’s hating on Segal but maybe we can appreciate this man for something other than his association with a shithead? 9/10 posts so far just reference this Seagal incident. This dude was a martial arts legend in his own right that deserves to be remembered for plenty of worthwhile reasons NOT associated with Steven Seagal.


Flat-Photograph8483

Yes this. I’m excited to see people find out about him but it should be one thread about the pants crapping. Gene forgot more about fighting than most will ever know.


QLE814

Note the points made elsewhere in this discussion about how he was part of a great lineage in multiple fight scenes, which matters a lot given how those scenes have largely vanished.


dominic_tortilla

RIP to the man who (allegedly) made Steven Seagal shit his pants


Weierstrash1999

Let's be honest, he DID make seagal shit his pants. Btw seagal is a well known putler dickrider so fuck that guy.


spygentlemen

Damn. Dude was a martial arts legend and a lot of fun to listen too.


TylerDurdenUMD

Don’t forget: MADE STEVEN SEAGAL SHIT HIMSELF


MumrikDK

That's *Judo* Gene LeBell in my world :D


TimDave

Wow, I literally watched the video of Freddie Prinze Jr. talking about this guy choking out Steven Seagal LAST NIGHT, and 7 hours later he passed away. Life is BIZARRE. Ninja Edit: RIP TO A LEGEND


chipkoandolan

Rest in peace, Judo Gene. What a legend.


Slatedtoprone

He has a wrestler vs boxer fight way back in the day. This is when judo wasn’t really known or accepted in America. So Gene repped judo and proceeded to beat the boxer up.


dirtman81

Terrific article that adds a huge amount of context to the awkward Bruce Lee scene in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood". The scene was a real sour note on its own, but reading about Gene and Bruce's early encounters on set, it makes tons of sense. Too bad Tarrantino couldn't have been more insightful in his film language since the scene came across as purely insulting to Bruce.


Scienter17

Damn, not Judo Gene LeBell!


simpsons88

Literally heard of this guy for the first time ever yesterday with the Steven Segal story. Fees weird to see this headline today.


Hellright

UNCLE!!!!! *arm snaps*


BriefAbbreviations11

I literally searched for “Judo Gene choles out Steven Segal” two hours ago. Sorry guys.


Liberatedsheep

Dude who made Segal pass out and shit his pants


_anonette_

Tackle and grapple!


Successful_Basket399

Jeez it seems like a lot of old actors are dying this year. Rip 🙏


trpnblies7

Weird, I just heard about him this morning in a thread about Steven Seagal shilling for Russia.


Individual_Client175

Damn, I just read about him yesterday


Human_Software_1476

Synchronicity’s getting weird for me lately


Effective-Park-5514

Great Judo Gene


Glittering-Lab-734

You will be missed


bobpetersen55

Always knew him as the scene stealing taxi driver from Rush Hour. "DON'T MOVE..... DROP YOUR GUNS!"


cwilson1986

"You don't seem to realize my nephew, who he is. He's a county commissioner."


Im_on_my_phone_OK

On top of all his accolades he was one hell of a storyteller. RIP


AncientAsstronaut

I remember his unexpected cameo on Reno 911. What a legend. RIP


Blade_Shot24

I was just thinking of this man. One of the actual fighter who did MMA fights before they were popular.


Zn6538

No!!!


HermitLonerGuy

He also was a mentor to Ronda Rousey, she must be so devastated. RIP we love you gene, must be training now in heaven with Bruce and all the legends🌹


jorgepal02

R I P, sir.


MrMojorisin521

And just when Steven Seagal needs the biggest Ass kicking of his life. RIP.
