His travels took him all over the world. He finally arrived in North America and heard of the world of pro-wrestling. After trying several leagues, he was approached by the NFW for the Heavyweight Title Tournament. Shinobi accepted but was destroyed in the first round by Tiny Tubbs. He then went on to lose his Cruiserweight Title to Amerikid in Exeland WI. Shinobi then went on a sebatical from wrestling for several months. When he returned, he had forsaken his former rulebreaking ways and quickly became a fan favorite, defeating Dan Armstrong in his return.
