Wanting to build my body like that of the world famous kung fu action star, Bruce Lee, I started working out when I was in junior high. I, as my strict daily routine, used to do push-ups, sit-ups, and pull-ups right after I got back from school. Besides, I would use a hand gripper in class to strengthen my grip, which is absolutely one of my good memories.
I competed in my first bodybuilding show when I was 21 and won that competition.
Since then, I've had some opportunities to work at gyms or fitness centers in my country, Japan, as a gym trainer and shared with members there my knowledge of weight training, nutrition, and everything I had learned. I, even as a personal trainer, trained many elite athletes, such as a Japanese woman's bodybuilding champion, one of Japan's top ranked woman's triathletes, and so on.
During my stay here in the U.S. for 6 years, I would train at Gold's Gym, Venice—the Mecca of bodybuilding—and competed in bodybuilding shows both in southern California and Japan.
Even though I once moved back to Japan in the summer of 2000, 4 years later, obtaining a "green card", a permanent resident card, I got back to the United States with my family. I currently live in Irvine, California and train hard at the gym at least 5 times a week, as a "drug-free" athlete, to obtain a well-balanced and well-proportioned body.
I take pride in the fact that I am an all-natural (lifetime drug-free) athlete. I have never used any growth or performance enhancing drugs (steroids) in my life. Even though I don't care about PEOPLE using drugs, that is NOT my way. In fact, "Lifetime Drug-Free" is my motto. I don't think bodybuilders who use steroids are beautiful because of the side effects of the drugs, such as enlargement of the breasts and nipples, rough skin, and so on. What's more, their physiques are unnatural; I prefer natural physiques, which are very artistic and aesthetic.
My family, friends, and I myself wouldn't be able to be proud of K44 if I used such stuff, I believe that all-natural is the best way for all athletes...
For the coming generation, I need some results... big results...
I believe myself... I CAN do it...
My forte is a small waist (24 inches), which is also the same size as my thigh, which produces a well-proportioned physique and a beautiful silhouette.
Move on! / Rise above! / Never be satisfied; Keep moving forward! / Do not rush! Be devoted! / Live for now! / Enjoy life! / For the coming generation! / and more...
To completely develop my potential as an all-natural athlete so that I could reach a physique, a magnificent (well-shaped, well-balanced, well-proportioned) body, which I've been imaging since I started this challenging sport.
To be a good example and offer hope to the coming generation, through bodybuilding, without the use of growth enhancing drugs.
