Two new Sendai Girls trainees
Sendai Girls head trainer Meiko Satomura introduced two new trainees to the media today. Both Nikkan Sports & Sanspo Sports filed reports. The first trainee is 15 year old Yukari Ishino (left). She is from Osaka, is 158cm tall and weighs 57kg. She's been training in judo for three years. Apparently she's watched a lot of joshi on TV and is a big Satomura fan. Her parents sent a lot of her furniture to the Sendai Girls dorm so she would be comfortable. The second trainee is 15 year old Masako Shoji (right). She is from Sendai, is 167cm tall and weighs 67km. So she's a little larger than average. Apparently her background is in swimming. Her family lives only 4km from the dojo so she won't get homesick. She says she's a big Michinoku Pro & Sendai Girls fan. Of course the training is tough. They're up at 8AM. They clean the gym, train until lunch. Then they help prepare dinner and train some more until dinner. They have stuff to do in the evening too until the gym closes at 9PM. They have to keep a diary of their training. There's no drinking, smoking, boys, cellphones or fraternizing with wrestlers who work elsewhere. Good luck to them. They'll need it.
