His pro-wrestling debut was from All Japan Pro-Wrestling Association (not to be confused with Giant Baba's All Japan Pro-Wrestling) in 1954. Soon after winning Japanese Junior Heavyweight title in 1957, he was scouted by JWA where he became the greatest side-player in the puroresu history. After the death of Rikidozan, he became one of the four directors to carry on the JWA. He won the All-Asia tag team title ten times with six different partners including Toyonobori, Antonio Inoki, Kintaro Ohki, etc. as well as NWA International Tag Team title with Giant Baba.
