Bio

Jinwoo "Saint" Choi is a professional fighting games player from Seoul, South Korea. He got into video games at a very young age, by his own admission going to arcades with his brother when he was just 3 years old. He used to go to arcades throughout the years, playing Street Fighter and later on Tekken Tag Tournament 1. After graduating high school Saint stated considering a career in fighting games and competing in tournaments around the time Tekken 5: Dark Ressurection was becoming popular. At this time Saint was still considering what to do with life and with the release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 he decided to wholly dedicate himself to the game. He started watching tournaments, analyzing pro player matches, and figuring out his shortcomings.

Despite competitive ambition, Saint's character choices are unique as his most recognisable mains are Ganryu and Jack. Despite the losses it brought, he kept improving until achieving success, most notably, winning The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2016 using Jack. Saint himself thinks that his character choice has something to do with a passion for the wrestling game he once played as a kid.

Unlike his longtime friend and teammate JDCR, Saint is also known for extensively modding his fight sticks, tuning them to perfection and making sure everything is just right. He even goes as far as trying out new parts while playing in tournaments, since the high stakes environment provides a true test of the ergonomics. He placed 4th at Season 1 of WePlay Ultimate Fighting League Tekken 7.
