His real name is Akio Mori. Trained by former (1994 – 1999) WBA Super Middleweight Boxing Champion Frankie Liles. Elder brother of middleweight K-1 kickboxer Tomo. Musashi took his ring name from the famous samurai of the same name, since his kicking technique is said to resemble the latter’s sword-slashing.
