Kevin Walker is a superstar point fighting competitor who trains under sport karate legend Tony Young, a fighter who Walker considers to be the greatest of all time. Throughout his journey to achieve a fourth degree black belt, Walker has developed a well-rounded point fighting game that features a wide array of skills from fast blitz techniques to momentum-shifting head kicks. He has used his talents to achieve numerous prestigious titles, the most significant of them being a Warrior Cup (2016), an ISKA U.S. Open World Championship (2017), and two diamond rings from the Diamond Nationals (2016, 2017).

Walker has developed a respected reputation for competing more frequently than nearly any other athlete in the sport. When there are not major international tournaments on the NASKA, ISKA, or WAKO circuits on the calendar, he is often seen fighting at large regional events such as those promoted by the Professional Martial Arts Conference (Pro-MAC). This reputation has had a positive impact on his business endeavors, as he frequently teaches private lessons and seminars. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he has continued teaching through Skype and Zoom services. Outside of martial arts, Walker is currently pursuing a career as a financial investor.

Takakeisho claimed the November Grand Sumo Tournament Sunday with a playoff victory over Terunofuji. The pair had already met in the final scheduled match of the 15-day long event with Terunofuji throwing Takakeisho to the ground to win the bout and force the playoff as both men finished with a 13-2 record.

But Takakeisho, 24, came out hitting in the playoff forcing Terunofuji out of the ring to capture the championship, his second Emperor's cup since achieving ozeki status, sumo's second highest rank. The tournament, which had to be moved from Fukuoka to Tokyo due to coronavirus concerns, was contested without grand champions Hakuho and Kakuryu who withdrew due to injuries.
