Isami Kodaka (木高 イサミ , Kodaka Isami, born September 27, 1981) is a Japanese professional wrestler, currently signed to Pro-Wrestling Basara. He originally started his career in the Kaientai Dojo promotion in July 2002, but later left the promotion to become a freelancer, before signing with Union Pro Wrestling in 2005. Through Union Pro’s working relationship, Kodaka also began working for Big Japan Pro Wrestling (BJW), where he adopted his current, hardcore wrestling-based style. Kodaka remained affiliated with Union Pro until the promotion folded in October 2015, after which he became a founding member of Pro-Wrestling Basara.
In 2005, Isami ended his freelancing days, when he signed a contract with the Union Pro Wrestling promotion. Through Union Pro’s working relationship with the Big Japan Pro Wrestling (BJW) promotion, Isami also made appearances for BJW, where he started a storyline with Jaki Numazawa and Mad Man Pondo, which led to him evolving his mixed martial arts-based wrestling style into a more deathmatch-based style. He was trained in the deathmatch style by Numazawa and Jun Kasai at their BJW affiliated School of Death training school. He made his deathmatch debut in 2006 and has retained the style ever since. In the deathmatch circles, Isami found himself a generational rival in Yuko Miyamoto.
In June 2007, Kodaka suffered a cervical disc herniation, which would sideline him for eleven months. Upon his return to the ring, Kodaka, now working under his full name, won his first professional wrestling title, when he and Masashi Takeda defeated Takashi Sasaki and Yuko Miyamoto on May 28 to win BJW’s 2009 Dai Nihon Saikyo Tag League and become the new BJW Tag Team Champions. The duo held the title for two months, before losing it to Daisuke Sekimoto and Yuji Okabayashi, after which Kodaka formed a new tag team named “Deathmatch Nichokenju”, later renamed “Yankii Nichokenju”, with longtime rival Yuko Miyamoto. In 2010, Kodaka made several appearances for women’s wrestling promotion Ice Ribbon, where he and Chii Tomiya won the International Ribbon Tag Team Championship by defeating Jun Kasai and Miyako Matsumoto on August 7. On June 25, Kodaka also made an appearance for Smash, losing to Kushida in a “World Tryout” match. On January 3, 2011, Kodaka won his first singles title and his first title in his home promotion of Union Pro, when he defeated Kim Nan Pun for the DDT Extreme Division Championship in a six-man tag team captain’s fall match, where he, Keita Yano and Survival Tobita faced Nan Pun, Cao Zhang and Choun Shiryu. On May 5, Yankii Nichokenju won their first title together, when they defeated Jaki Numazawa and Jun Kasai for the BJW Tag Team Championship. After an eight-month reign, Kodaka lost the DDT Extreme Division Championship to El Generico on September 19. Kodaka regained the title from El Generico on January 3, 2012, only to lose it to his own tag team partner, Yuko Miyamoto, on March 29 as part of an interpromotional rivalry between Union Pro and BJW. On April 1, Kodaka and Miyamoto also lost the BJW Tag Team Championship to Shinobu and Yoshihito Sasaki. The two bounced back on November 22 by winning the 2012 Dai Nihon Saikyo Tag League and becoming the new BJW Tag Team Champions. On January 14, 2013, Kodaka won the DDT Extreme Division Championship for the third time, after defeating Keisuke Ishii. However, his reign lasted only thirteen days, before losing the title to Kenny Omega in a match also contested for Union Pro’s parent promotion DDT Pro-Wrestling’s top title, the KO-D Openweight Championship. On August 18 at Ryōgoku Peter Pan 2013, DDT’s biggest event of the year, Kodaka and Miyamoto defeated Hikaru Sato and Yukio Sakaguchi to win the KO-D Tag Team Championship for the first time and become double tag team champions. Following their win, Kodaka and Miyamoto vowed to successfully defend their double crown hundred times. Yankii Nichokenju went undefeated for most of 2013, before losing to Speed of Sounds (Hercules Senga and Tsutomu Oosugi) in a non-title match on October 18.
