Back in the day Tomo Ohira had made one hell of a name for himself, taking top honors at many tournaments that were held state side. One time before a match, he said he was going to beat his next opponent with Guile by only using the Light Kick button.

Ohira walked around, pegged the other guy with Light Kicks and won in convincing fashion. He was also featured in Capcom instructional videos and his name continues on to this day for his legendary prowess in the competitive Street Fighter scene.

Mike Watson interviewed him to see what he's been up to all of these years after he left the scene around the time Hyper Fighting was in it's hey day. Here's the interview from Evo 2009.
