As of yesterday, have left the team Wajyutsu Keisyukai. I am now freelance.
This is because I want to change my life. I’ve moved to a different apartment in a different area of Japan. I’ve transferred and now work at a different branch school in my company. I also want to change MMA teams and experience new things. I hope to open more doors for opportunities.
I’m now thinking about various places I’m going to train, but I know I’ll keep working with my trainer Kiuma Kunioku, for one.
I joined Keishukai exactly four years ago, introduced by a friend from MMA.tv. The Keishukai people accepted me into their dojo, and I felt like family. I have many many happy memories. I’m eternally grateful to them and will continue to love them. I lived there, I learned there, I cried there, I bled there, I slept there- it was home. It was half of my life. I treasure the friendships I made and those that will continue, and I know I’ll run into everyone all over the place. The MMA world is a small world, after all.
Thank you, Keishukai.
