  1. He is looking really genki. I love that new move of slapping the hell out of himself right before he sets – makes him look a bit mad. Can only wonder what his opponents think. His mobility is also really impressive.

  2. Really awesome for him! And it looked like the ladies in the audience wanted to chat with him afterwards, so hopefully he will become as popular in Japan as on Tachiai. :)

    I wonder where they are going to find a hairdresser with the skills to tame that mane into a chonmage. I hope they aren’t going to have to relax and straighten his hair constantly, that’s a painful process.
