One of the Pride commentators said there was 22 BJJ black belts in Japan. Does anyone know who they are, where they train and who they got their belts from?

I know most of them are from Paraestra(Nakai), Others include: Nakai(Paraestra Tokyo) Takamasa Watanabe(Axis) Hayakawa(Tri-force) Tomari(Paraestra Hakata) Fujita(Paraestra Hiroshima) Suzuki(Alive Nagoya) Amazon Sugie(Alive Nagoya) Takao Tadeu Tani(Tani Jiu-jitsu) Shioda(Paraestra Hachioji) Baba(Hiro Jiujitsu Yokohama) Taira(Strapple) That's about half of them... I know there are more!

Enson (Purebred) is also a bjj black i believe. I also think there is a Japanese guy at his Omiya gym teaching bjj thats also a bb. Not certain on that though.

Dude, if you click on each person, a profile comes up that includes his/her romanized name.

If I recall correctly, Taira got his from Carley Gracie. Hayakawa started out with Taira but didn't get his black belt from him, actually. I think Hayakawa got his from Alexandre Paiva. Watanabe's is from Rickson.

Hey Hamu - thats a great link. Looks like they are only including Japanese born on the lists though. Going to the odd tourney now and again I have seen many Gaikokujin (and half) purples and browns that currently reside in Japan.

I thought 'Poo' was Dai's nickname? Either way, I have heard 'Poo' is awesome.

Isanu Shishido won his division in the World Cup last year (as a brown belt). The next night at training Dede awarded him the black.

`Poo` trains mostly at Paraestra hachioji now with Ayumi Shioda. Pretty cool having 2 blackbelts at a fairly small school.
