How Gai joined the Tourney

Gai Tendo is a fighter of the martial arts system named Total Combat or Total Fighting Art. He hails from Japan and heard news of the upcoming Buriki One tournament and decided to enter to test his skills. During the tournament, he started a rivalry with american boxer Rob Python.

After the World Grapple Tournament, Gai went to training in Hokkaido. He was spotted by a young man named Iska Farkas who offered help him start his own dojo. However, Gai began using his chi to suspect Iska's true motives.
