Earlier this month Kazuhiro Hidaka (32-7, 23) [飛天かずひこ], a former 2-weight OPBF champion, opened his new gym.
The gym, an amateur boxing gym, is called the RAB Boxing Gym "Dream Station", and had it's grand opening on April 8th.
The gym is in Tokyo and will be open from 10am to 10pm through the week, with the clear focus being on fitness, boxing teaching and a sense of fun.
Mr Hidaka is well known in Japan for his in ring career, which spanned from 1996 to 2013 and saw him have an exciting and memorable career. During his long career he fought a relative who's who of the Japanese and Asian scene. He would share the ring with the likes of Crazy Kim, Rev Santillan, Dondon Sultan, Yuki Nonaka, Taisei Marumoto, Akio Shibata and Hikaru Nishida. If his gym is as fun as he was to watch it'll be well worth a visit.
More details about the gym can be found on the official website, which is here.
