The #1 ranked vert skater on the circuit, Takeshi is of the most dynamic athletes on the vert ramp today. His skating has been compared to Jackie Chan, "The Matrix," and anything that seems to defy physics. His signature tricks are the inverted 1080 and massive Viking flips. Though he's still a teenager, Takeshi is already a veteran of the sport, having started skating at age three and competing on the pro circuit since age nine.
