Martial Artist: Toshiya Agata

Toshiya Agata is a badass.  Yes, he’s a second degree black belt in Shorinji Kempo, but he’s also managed to put together an impressive acting resume as well.  For example, you may recognize him from Letters from Iwo Jima.  If by chance you’ve recently been on a flight with Japanese performances dubbed over an American film, Toshiya probably voiced one of the leads.  When he’s not playing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in The Tooth Fairy, you can also hear him in Call of Duty: World at War as a Japanese soldier.  He’s a very busy guy.  I got to spend a few hours with him and I had a blast watching him kick, spin, chop, slash and fly through the air.  I got tired before he did, and I didn’t do one jump kick.  I hope you like the images we made.
