Kiyoshi Tamura

Kiyoshi Tamura

As a youngster, Kiyoshi Tamura was constantly exposed to the martial arts. Starting at the age of twelve, he began practicing every form of martial art he could try, even Sumo! Today, Tamura's game relies on an aggressive style and tremendous heart. His "never say die" attitude is always evident when he fights, especially given that he is one of the smallest contending heavyweights. To compensate for the size disadvantage, Tamura has a vast arsenal of submissions, including the hiza-juji-gatame (knee bar), which he has used to defeat several opponents.
