Japan's Karate Kid: Kyoji Horiguchi

   "Kyoji Horiguchi is one of Japan's brightest prospects in MMA, currently based in Tokyo and training alongside legendary Kid Yamamoto at his gym, Krazy Bee.
   While lacking the professional guidance usually provided by coaches for UFC fighters in the US, he makes up for it by having Kid Yamamoto as his training partner." -Vice Japan
   This short profile of MMA hopeful Kyoji Horiguchi reveals a very personal & touching portrait of a young dedicated fighter struggling to make it in his chosen profession.

   The dedication, skill & social network required to even have a chance at making it in MMA is analogous to trying to establish yourself in any profession in the modern economy - slim 2 none even 4 the best of the working class.                Yellowmenace
