BIOGRAPHY

A top contender in the Junior Heavyweight division, KUSHIDA has his eyes set on becoming the best in the organization. Having extensive overseas training in multiple promotions, he made his New Japan debut in April of 2011. With the classic speed of a Jr. Heavyweight, he combines his MMA background to employ painful holds and submissions against his opponents. The name of his finisher, the Hoverboard Lock, is inspired by Back to the Future, one of his favorite movies.
