Here’s a fun little challenge for you MiddleEasy readers out there. Google ‘Rin Nakai’ and find me one picture that isn’t sexualized and erotic. That’s right, you can’t. Even Rin Nakai’s workout videos are her clad in a skimpy bikini as she leans over the workout bench to show her cleavage. Heck, she even videos herself taking a bath. There’s so much hypocrisy in Rin Nakai’s statement that she gave to Punch Drunk Gamer that it makes me want to crawl back into bed and reset life. Nevertheless, you guys should read it for yourself.
Unfortunately, the women’s MMA situation has been getting worse in Japan. The serious economic damage caused by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan has been attacking the JMMA business. Pancrase is the only organization developing and progressing despite of recent bad economy. I can say, PANCRASE is JMMA!
Women’s JMMA is getting worse because the amount of females joining the sport in Japan has been steadily decreasing. I think that the reason why that is happening is because of the gyms and training centers management. For example, the guys in the gym are too aggressive against ladies in training (hitting them full-force and such). And that isn’t even the worst thing, the guys are looking at the female fighters not as fighters but as sex objects. In my personal experiences, sometimes guys don’t show any respect for me despite the fact that I have won two championship belts. I can hold out hope that the guys in JMMA gyms will learn to have a lady first attitude and a gentleman spirit. I think many top class male fighters could have a good and strong heart that they could earn by daily hard training.
Rin Nakai needs to make the transpacific voyage to the US and get on an Invicta FC card. I think there’s really other no option at this point. Oh, and stop making those creepy videos. That is, unless you’re being held captive in Japan.
