Kazunoko didn't believe he'd go pro, and was actually nervous about doing so; check out this interview with the CapCup champ from before his success

After an amazing victory from the winner's bracket at Capcom Cup, Kazunoko has solidified his title as both a champion of 2015, and a champion of Street Fighter 4 in general.

Now that he's undisputed as one of the greatest, we take a look back to catch a glimpse of Kazunoko before he went pro at fighting games. We've discovered an interview with Kaz from a few years back, and get to hear him humbly denote himself as much less than a professional.

As part of a larger documentary, "100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience," Kazunoko offers his perspective as an up and coming fighting game player. From his first arcade experiences as an 18 year old, to his early fights with MCZ|Daigo, we get a fresh perspective on this celebrated Street Fighter.
