Student era[edit]

Kozo Takeda was born in Adachi, Tokyo, Japan on December 27, 1972. He played rugby when he was in high school, and entered Kokushikan University by recommendation, but dropped out as soon as he watched bouts of Branko Cikatić fight K-1 on television. He started practicing kickboxing at the Jiseikan Gym in Saitama. He joined Seido-Kaikan and increased his weight to 90 kg to enter K-1 as a heavyweight kickboxer, but he rejoined Jiseikan and debuted as a welterweight kickboxer of Shin Nihon Kickboxing Association (SNKA) on March 19, 1995.
