Tokyo shares with MOVE TV his passion to teach...
TOKYO has a very unique induction into dance as he was not introduced to dance till he was a Senior in high school. Tokyo grew up in the martial arts and began training at age 5. By the age of 15 he attained several black belts in various arts in addition to training in Wrestling, Muay Thai, Boxing and MMA (Cage Fighting). At age 17, after a promising undefeated amateur record, just a few months shy of making a professional career out of MMA (mixed martial arts/cage fighting), Tokyo discovered dance and his life changed drastically.
Since leaving the fighting world and entering the dance world, Tokyo has been fortunate enough to have done master classes and choreography in the US, Canada, Australia, Central America and UK for many studios, companies, colleges, casinos as well as for Cirque Du Soleil. Due to Tokyo's background in martial arts his approach to dance movement, philosophy and teaching is truly distinctive, having been received and loved by many.
