①Who is “Professional Surfer Kaiki Yamanaka”?

He was born in 1994 from Osaka, Japan, currently University student of Kansei University.

He is the hope of Kansai area in professional surfers for the world wide competitor.

Now he is moving his base to QS (Qualification Series) from Japan, JPSA (Japan Pro Surfing Association),

and competing hard even he is carrying significant Lower Back Issue.


Please have a look his Instagram and Video at the end of this!!


Nowadays, he is staying at Gold Coast, Australia to compete QS.

Though I could not see him much in Japan due to the distance between Osaka and Tokyo,

I have been seeing him in Australia often on February pretty much every year since we had been friend.

At this time, I had a chance to go to Gold Coast from Sunshine Coast for something else,

eventually he offer me to do his body conditioning at the time and I accept it.


②What is Body conditioning?

We, personal trainer, calling Body Conditioning for checking muscle balance

and maintenance it with full knowledge of muscular, anatomy, bones and physiological point.

We use the techniques of stretching and strength, the skill of muscle maintenance for body conditioning.


③How I approached to the body during competition period?

It was the first session for Kaiki, had a screening about how is body going,

how do you treat your body in Japan,

then I talked to Kaiki how he wants to treat today, this time.

The day was just between the competition (2 days before the next comp),

so I did not give deep tissue treatment for him but treat superficial tissue,

release fatigue muscle pain for whole body with general pressure

base with the treatment what he normally has in Japan.


Also I asked him what he normally train and fix some techniques

and give some new core exercises and stretching.


I got a text from him after that and he said;

 I feel my body has got  really light!

Lower back is still sore,

I would like to have your body conditioning again!

I was really happy with he got positive result

but also I was a little bit shocked that his lower back is the same,

even I expected it will not change a lot

because it was not good time to give deep tissue treatment for that area.

I told him that you need a patience to fix it well and need to take a time approaching it.

Also that is the job of mine that make that time short and even stronger than before as a good personal trainer.

I said to him that I would like to have session more often and make him stronger.

Now still studying for the next session for better result.


Until I can say these words with full of confidence that “making lower back better ”

from my own experience of Herniated disc of lower back,

that experience was one of best session for me to be motivated even higher!!

Thank you for your cooperation, Kaiki!!
