Bio

Ryota "John Takeuchi" is a Japanese Street Fighter V player that mains Rashid. He is one of the few Japanese fighting game pros that prefer to play using a control pad instead of an arcade stick.

John Takeuchi came to the limelight in 2016 after members of the r/kappa subreddit crowdfunded his trip to compete in Puerto Rico's annual tournament, First Attack. Dominating the event, John Takeuchi took first place and won himself numerous fans.

He came close to winning EVO Japan 2018 but was defeated by Seonwoo "Infiltration" Lee in the Grand Finals. His achievements include a 1st place finish at Cannes Winter Clash 2017, 2nd at Saigon Cup 2019, 4th at NorCal Regionals 2019, 5th at Celtic Throwdown 2019 & Combo Breaker 2019, 7th at DreamHack Montreal 2017, and 9th at Capcom Cup 2019

Takeuchi teamed up with Yossan and won 1st place at The Craze Supported by eSports MaX SFV 2v2 tournament with a cash prize of million Yen (approximately $9698).
