Shinya "Tobikan Judan" Aoki (born May 9, 1983) is a Japanese professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter, submission grappler, and former police trainee, who is noted for being the World Alliance of Mixed Martial Arts (WAMMA) lightweight champion, DREAM lightweight champion, and Shooto middleweight chanmpion. Aoki holds a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Yuki Nakai, as well as a black belt in Judo. He was an instructor of the Paraestra Tokyo head-school when competing, before his actions at Dynamite!! 2009 against fighter Mizuto Hirota caused him to be dismissed as an instructor. He is best known for his excellent flexibility, often taking opponents by surprise and earning him the nickname "Tobikan Judan," meaning "master of flying submissions." As of 2008, Aoki, along with DEEP champion Masakazu Imanari, and Sengoku champion Satoru Kitaoka have founded the "Nippon Top Team" as a group of elite Japanese grapplers competing in MMA. As well as his MMA credentials, Aoki has garnered several submission grappling accolades including two All Japan Jiu-Jitsu championships, a Japan Open Jiu-Jitsu championship, a Budo Open championship, and an ADCC Japan championship.
