Originally from Hawaii, Enson Inoue followed his martial arts soul to Japan where he now lives and trains. Beginning his journey at 16 years old, Inoue studied Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido; at age 21 he began training in Gracie Jiu Jitsu under Relson Gracie. With a complete arsenal of fighting techniques, Inoue quickly shot up the ranks and became one of the most exciting and dangerous fighters in the world. Because of his refusal to ever tap out to his opponents, this tattooed superstar gained the nickname "Yamato Damashi," translated from the Japanese as "the proud fighting soul of the warrior." He is the modern-day samurai!
