Rest in Peace, Kazuaki "BKC" Tsukagoshi

It is with great sadness to present news that the Tekken player Kazuaki Tsukagoshi, or "BKC" as we all know him, passed away this last Saturday. His family had discovered him deceased in his room after he did not come down for breakfast in the early morning of February 9, 2019.

In his early days with the Tekken series, BKC gained recognition as one of the best Bryan Fury players from Japan with his defense and fluid movement which remains rock-solid in even the most stressful of situations in deathmatches and tournaments. BKC was a common name to see if you looked up the list of high-ranking players in Japan across multiple arcade Tekken games. During the days of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, his Tekken skills would later find him working at arcades like Game Plaza GAO Kitasenju and Namco Sugamo where he would help support the arcade community by running many local tournaments and hosting Tekken lectures to help newer players learn the game. It was thanks to his support that we have countless hours of early arcade footage and even learning resources back when the world didn't have access to Tekken 7.

In recent times, BKC would go on to become a sponsored Pro Tekken player traveling to overseas tournaments like EVO and StrongStyle while attached to the Walker Gaming team.

The Tekken community is deeply saddened by his loss and he will be gravely missed. May you rest easy BKC.

First Volume of Tekken Attack features Mushin Tekken Matches from Namco Sugamo

Japanese Tekken playing pros; Yuu, Nobi & Take banded together to form "Mushin Tekken" (formerly No Respect) and they're starting to create Tekken content again while they're all sponsored by Yamasa. Their recent foray results in new 'TEKKEN ATTACK' show with the first episode including the three players heading into Namco Sugamo to match up with the staff that works over there in some friendly Tekken 7 Fated Retribution matches. The video is presented in an live show / interview format but the matches can be watched part ways through to see some good Japanese Tekken matches. For more other Yuu / Nobi / Take related video content, you can check out their YouTube channel over here:

T7FR - GON (Lili) VS BKC (Bryan) Fujin Deathmatch

 

Two seasoned Japanese veterans going at it in a Fujin level deathmatch. This deathmatch goes on for a long time but it showcases some high level Japanese Tekken play. If memory serves right, both GON and BKC are at least top 3 in Japan for their respective character's ranks across the country so these guys are pros at the characters they're using here. If you're looking for match videos featuring these characters, enjoy 3 whole hours of it here.

TTT2 - Japanese Tournament, Kumites & Online Ranked Matches ft. Kuro Kuro & Knee Archives

There was a suprising amount of Tekken going on this past weekend. First off, Kuro Kuro & Shana (both Japanese players) visited Korea to interview Korean players for the Tekken Mura website and play some Tekken. Kuro Kuro went to Knee's house to stream online Ranked matches with him onto his niconico community page. Secondly, Nobi and BKC went to the Oita prefecture in Fukuoka for a kumite event as well as a random 2on2 tournament inside the Amusement Spot arcade. Lastly, Namco held a Kumite event in Osaka, Japan featuring the recent Ranking Battle winner Amigo as well as Osaka's own Burimaru and Matador. This was all streamed on niconico but for those who don't have premium accounts, I've got it all archived on YouTube below.
