It’s never enough

Ever feel like whatever you’re doing just isn’t good enough for your parents? Well, looks like it’s the same for Takanori Gomi, who’s dad recently chastised him in the standard quiet Japanese fashion for having holes in his game:

“My parents came to see me. This is my dad’s first time to come to my gym. We went to a soba restaurant together and I updated them about my recent situation. I felt very relaxed talking with them about my punches and KO fights. He told me how amazing it is to win by KO again and again. On the way home, he said, “You shouldn’t be defeated on the ground either” I have no excuse to lose, no matter what.”

    Gomi brings his family shame.

    His family must have flipped out when he lost to a high mexican

  • Lifer

    pretty sure his dad was his grappling instructor for many years.

    God, Suki with the paraphrasing, yet again…

    Here’s a bit more of an accurate translation of the end:

    “As I was taking them to the station, on the point of going home, my father said to me: “Don’t you lose on the ground, either…”

    Maybe I HAVE been getting caught up in the glamour of winning by KO. Well, I’ll do my best!”
