Sawayashiki, at only 19 years old, turned pro in 2004 and started fighting for R.I.S.E. kickboxing promotion in Japan. He made his K-1 debut on December 2, 2006 at the K-1 WGP 2006 Final undercard, against Mitsugu Noda, winning the fight by split decision.
After three consecutive wins at Yokohama, Hawaii and Amsterdam Sawayashiki earned himself a wildcard entry to the K-1 Final Elimination against the K-1 Asia winner Yusuke Fujimoto. After having his nose broken in the first round, Sawayashiki fought on and knocked down Fujimoto three times in the third round before referee stopped the fight.
His next fight was at the K-1 World GP 2007 Final against 3-Time World Champion, Peter Aerts. He suffered his first K-1 loss by first round Knockout after taking a tremendous right punch to the face. Sawayashiki's career went downhill from there, losing 4 more straight fights in a row, 3 KO losses to Musashi, Catalin Morosanu and Glaube Feitosa plus a punishing three round fight against Jerome Lebanner in the 2008 Final 16. Many now consider Sawayashiki's career short lived and likely over.
