 Foot function ten stages . It is his pronoun, who celebrated the joint technique of Masakazu Imanari, who is drawn out from lightning-like speed, as a humble character. Now that martial arts has become global, each player’s nickname is translated into English even if the original is Japanese. However, with the exception of ” Fujiki Judan “, it is written Ashikan Judan ” as it is, and it is transmitted to the fans of the world. How the living legend Masakazu Imanari became a martial arts legend.

 ”When I was a kid, I was catching insects and killing people, I think it was ordinary. I look forward to doing so, but I am unfortunate when I was in junior high school. “I had a back pain and I even had surgery. So I wasn’t able to exercise at all when I was a student. I could not move my body while my friend was in the club.”

 However, at some point a turning point comes. “My brother is a martial arts fan, and he taught me Pancras and Shooto. I also wanted to do it. I wasn’t doing any exercise, but it seems like there’s no youth-specific self-confident confidence (laughs) ) I thought it would be cool. ” This adult boy may have noticed it while being unconscious to the nature to sleep in himself.

 I started martial arts after over 20 years old, but it was the first time to tackle sports in earnest in the first place. However, he said he did not feel the complex against the players around him. “It was meaningless compared to people, and I thought I would do what I could do. I was just trying to be a substitute, but I was desperately trying to get it done. I had no choice but to take my foot, and that was the only way to win. “

 ”On one occasion, a colleague was doing jiu-jitsu is foot function ten-stage I was me named me”. It is a very strange name to the world now, but it would have been a natural flow to be called.

 ”I don’t feel as if I’m eating rice as a professional fighter or trying to have the king’s awareness when I win the title. I just do what I like, and I’m going to win Just do the best. ” Nowadays, with the spread of social networks, while everyone can become the leading role, I feel that there are many people who are desperately trying to put out their individuality. However, when looking at the nature of the body, it seems like a foolish act. The result of living pure and desperately gave birth to the personality of “Ashikan Jukadan”, and created the legend of Masakazu Imanari. It has never been made.

 The main battlefield of the present is the stage of ONE . I will continue to fascinate the world with bright feet.
