Bio: In ADCC 2009 Japan Trials, Mizuho Sato aggressively went for a take down but Hitomi Hiraiwa countered with leg locks. When Sato came in for a single leg, Hitomi calmly grabbed the right arm for a kimura. And from there, Hitomi threw Sato then twisted the kimura even further for a quick tap out win. It was a complete domination by Hitomi!
