Young age[edit]

Taishin Kohiruimaki was born as Takayuki Kohiruimaki in Misawa, Aomori, November 11, 1977. He started learning karate at the branch of Kyokushin kaikan, and then he started kickboxing at Active J, a kickboxing gym in Tokyo.

Early career[edit]

On January 31, 1997, he debuted as a professional kickboxer of All Japan Kickboxing Federation(AJKF), and he won his first bout by KO at 3R. On May 30, 1997, he fought and won against Masato (a future K-1 tournament champion.) Kohiruimaki won by TKO at 3R with knee strikes. On October 26, he fought against Tatsuya Suzuki who was the current champion of AJKF at welterweight, and he won by TKO at 2R. After this bout, he left AJKF because his gym, Active J, decided to leave AJKF and established J-Network, a new kickboxing organization.


On October 3, 1999, Kohiruimaki was recruited by K-1, and fought against Kotetsu Boku at the special match of K-1 World GP '99 Opening. The bout was ended as a draw after five rounds.
