Early life Edit

Oka met Takaaki Kidani, president of Bushiroad in 2013, and was signed to New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) shortly after, but didn't begin training until 2015 as he was still in university at the time. Oka is an avid anime fan, citing Milky Holmes as his favourite anime.[1][2] In the past, Oka has also competed in judo, karate, sambo, kickboxing, pankration, jiu-jitsu and mixed-martial arts.[3]

Foreign excursion (2018–Present)Edit

Before going on an excursion Oka started using the Mongolian chop as well stating that he would change. In June, Oka began his excursion debuting for England's Revolution Pro Wrestling on June 30 at Strong Style Evolved UK defeating Shota Umino, under the ringname the (The) Great O-Khan, named after the ruler of the Mongolian Empire Khan, while during his entrances he wears a traditional Mongolian deel. During his debut Ohka struggled to get the gimmick over in the United Kingdom, he would have a major victory defeating reigning Evolve Champion Shane Strickland.
