Japanese Star Aya Koyama Passes Away After Battle With Cancer



Some sad news to report today as Japanese wrestling star Aya Koyama, known as Aliya’, has passed away early this morning at the age of 45 after a battle with stage IV cancer, which was announced by Women Of Honor Champion Sumie Sakai on Twitter:

The 20-year veteran got her start back in 1996 using her real name and competed for a few big promotions such as All-Japan Pro Wrestling, All-Japan Women’s Wrestling, Big Japan and even Mexico’s CMLL. During a break from the ring in 2001, Koyama decided to step into the octagon and garnered a 4-9-1 record for companies like Smackgirl and DEEP before getting back into wrestling in 2005 using the name Aliya’. Through out her career, she competed alongside and against stars such as Manami Toyota, current WWE Superstar Asuka, Aja Kong and a host of other Japanese legends.

Her final matches came while she was fighting stage IV cancer. The Chairshot would like to extend its deepest condolences to the friends and family of Aya Koyama.

Press Release: Scott Hall Visits & More Updates From Team Vision Dojo



Team Vision Dojo
Keep up with the latest happenings at the Team Vision Dojo!

As we approach Christmas next week, the holidays haven’t slowed down the students at Team Vision Dojo in Orlando, Florida just yet.

The following press release was sent along to The Chairshot today detailing all the latest from the facility, including a recent visit from WWE Hall Of Famer Scott Hall:

The Team Vision Dojo has helped train many wrestlers over the past 16+ years and most notably trained many women’s wrestlers including Santana Garrett, Amber Nova, Salina de la Renta, Dasha Fuentes, and more. Many more have continued their training at the Dojo such as Zelina Vega, Mia Yim, Renee Michelle, Zeda Zhang, Chelsea Green, and many more. Currently, Ivelisse Velez is a female trainer at the Dojo.

Mondays at 6pm, the Team Vision Dojo has an exclusive women’s wrestling class. Here’s last night’s class:

Training at the Team Vision Dojo costs $3,500 for the lifetime membership or $200 monthly for 3 years. We now have a drop in rate for only $10 for the 1 hour women’s wrestling classes Monday night’s at 6pm and we also have a $10 drop in rate for our 1 hour Tuesday conditioning class at 7pm. The conditioning class is a great workout for anyone and also prepares wrestlers for a WWE NXT tryout.

Scott Hall visited this weekend to see his daughter Cassidy graduate from UCF and he stopped by the Dojo a couple of times. Scott will be back next weekend. Cody Hall, Scott’s son, was trained at the Dojo and is returning for a month in April and May. Also, Teddy Hart visited this weekend after winning the MLW Middleweight title.

Jason Cade has been back in the ring since his injury but obviously can’t train. In the link above, he can be seen sitting in the background of the 7pm Monday beginner’s class with his crutches. Cade trained for 3 months at the old WWE FCW school in 2012 before coming to the Team Vision Dojo to continue his training. Cade eventually signed with Major League Wrestling which happens to have many Dojo graduates working including their second in command Mister Saint Laurent.

The Team Vision Dojo is located in Orlando, Florida less than 10 minutes from the Orlando International Airport. Classes run Mondays through Thursdays with live events Fridays through Sundays. The Dojo, along with I Believe in Wrestling, is a big part of the Orlando community running events all over the area including multiple charity events and big concerts, beer events, cook offs, and more.
