Anyone can choke anyone out if they are allowed to apply a hold with no resistance, I understand Segal is an actor but doesn't he have some kind of resume as a martial artist?

Segal is an actor but also an Aikidoka. On 'E's True Hollywood Story' it told of Segal learning Aikido after being impressed by a demonstration at a football game. He met his first wife through Aikido and moved to Japan to help run their family dojo and teach the art. This was all on the above stated program. It goes on to say how he has children in Japan with her and got married to his second wife while still married to her. He left to make movies and pretty much forgot about his family in Japan. The story really paints Segal as a huge jerk, but one with Aikido training and teaching experience. All this is subject to scrutiny as it is a tv show, but it is supposed to be reality based.

I've heard a lot of people in Hollywood talk bad about Segal's attitude. Most recently was a couple months ago: DMX, who did a movie with Segal, was on Jimmy Kimmel Live. He mentioned that Segal is a huge cack and was being more than rough with the other actors in fight scenes. Apperently, DMX was thinking about laying the smizack down.

Coincidentally, the version of the Lebell story I hear the most says Segal was being rough with actors on a different set, which is the rumored reason Lebell decided to teach him a lesson in real MA's.

Funny how the story I first heard said Lebell acted out because of Segal's rough tactics to untrained actors...then DMX openly states on a national talk show that Segal was rough with people on their set. Some people never learn.

I actually don't like Segal, but at least he's getting his ass kicked by tough guys (Lebell, and a bodyguard). Could be worse, look at Liza Minelli's ex husband, he got beat up by his wife!!

LeBelle, did NOT choke out Lee! He did however, give him noogies on the set of The Green Hornet.
Lee used LeBelle in a number of stunts, as he could take the punishment Lee dished out. Just check out the sequence in 'Ironside'
