Bio

Hajime “Tokido” Taniguchi is a Japanese Street Fighter Akuma main player, formerly known as Murderface. According to Tokido's wiki page, he was born in Naha, Okinawa on July 7, 1985, and has been playing fighting games since the 1990s. Due to his success both in arcade and modern era of fighting games, he is with no doubt one of the most experienced players in the world, which makes him the opponent to be respected and frightened.

Tokido is currently a three-time EVO champion and considered one of the strongest fighting game players of all time. Throughout the career, he appeared on the pro scene of Tekken 6, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, The King of Fighters XIII and Persona 4 Arena, and also the previous titles of Street Fighter series, but with the release of Street Fighter V he became focused on this game and it did not take long for him to reach top places in multiple tournaments. 

Tokido has a well-known rivalry is Daigo Umehama (known simply as Daigo). However, it was Daigo to recommend Tokido to pick Akuma as the main character when they both were a part of the Mad Catz Street Fighter IV esport team. In the Grand Finals of NorCal Regionals 2018Tokido has beaten Daigo, in some kind of revenge for the defeat at EVO Japan 2018 in Losers Round 3 Finals bracket.

In 2017 Tokido was signed by Echo Fox and dedicated all his training to master Akuma, which brought him all the way through the losers bracket at EVO 2017 by wins over NuckleDu, Kazunoko, Itabashi Zangief and FChamp to the Grand Finals, where Tokido defeated Viktor "Punk" Woodley to become a champion. Check out this VOD of Tokido vs Punk legendary confrontation. Tokido's Raging Demon move from this fight became one of the most iconic highlights in the history of EVO. By the way, in March 2019 Tokido defeated Punk once again in the Grand Finals of NorCal Regionals 2019.
