KONISHIKI - Former Sumo wrestling champion, Recording Artist and Founder of the Konishiki Kids Foundation

Born Saleva’a Fauali Atisano’e, Konishiki Yasokichi was the first foreign-born sumo wrestler to be named champion or Ozeki. Konishiki won his first 11 matches as an amateur athlete in the Japanese sport. He left after more than 15 years with the Sumo Association and started his own business as a marketing professional, publicizing his persona through television. Konishiki has appeared in several TV advertisements for Japanese companies and products. He is also an established recording artist, debuting in the music scene in 2000.

All of Konishiki’s successes are put in to good use as he strives to uplift the lives of not only his family and relatives but also the hundreds of children who are on the verge of losing hope at such a young age. Konishiki founded the Konishiki Kids Foundation to mentor and guide disadvantaged children towards the right path. One of the main philosophies that the foundation wants to put forward is the idea that children have a “choice”.
