Miyuu’s father is an Olympic wrestler who competed in Munchen, her younger sister Seiko is a wrestling world champion and her younger brother Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto is a MMA fighter. Her son Asen Yamamoto, who has won several junior tournaments, made his professional MMA debut in 2015. Miyuu was raised in an elite wrestling environment from her early childhood and at the age of 13 she became the first ever national women’s wrestling champion. At 17 years old, she became the youngest world champion and continued to win the National championships 4 years in a row. She won world champion titles continuously in 94′ and 95′. Miyuu devoted herself to her family and children for some time, and announced for a comeback in 2011. She moved to Canada to join the Canadian team for the Rio Olympics but her immigration status wasn’t approved by the time for entry qualification competition. Her next challenge is in the professional ring at RIZIN FIGHTING WORLD GP 2016 in September. Miyuu turned 42 years old but she still has a lot of steam. Will she be able to hold her own amongst other female fighters?
