Akihiro Gono updated his blog.
I had an interview with a Japanese MMA magazine, "Kakutougitsushin." In the interview, I had a talk with Genki Sudo. We used to train together when he was a fighter. He is one of famous celebrities in Japan now and I hadn't seen him for a long time. I felt kinda strange today. He used to be a close friend of mine, but I felt he was not so close friend anymore when I saw him. The longer we talked, the more I remembered fond memories of him. He hasn't changed at all. I had great time with him. He told me about his life plan when we trained together, and he is living as he planned. He is a very positive and ambitious guy. He brought me lots of positive energy today. I suppose he hasn't accomplished his goal yet. I like the way he lives and I'm sure he is the one who inspires me to greater efforts.
