I worked on wrestling with coach Fabio and jujitsu with Nino, and sparring with Ninja and Shogun. Chute Boxe has great fighters so I think I will continue to be able to fight well. Ninja is dropping weight and I think he will be able to fight for the 83kg belt in the future.
After Shogun won recently, there were stories that you said you would let Shogun win if you had to fight him.
That dog is still in my house. We were half-joking but we bet Shogun's dog so it would be good training. The result was exactly as you said.
inally, I want to thank the fans. I want to thank all of the fans in the world, particularly the fans in America. Ninja and Shogun are going to be doing a lot of seminars there in the near future, so please check them out. I also want to thank God. By believing in God, I've been able to overcome various hardships and I believe He is very important. I also want to thank my new sponsors, Hanamaru Udon. I hope everyone has a great New Year.
