Possible Opponents


Born to an American father and a Japanese mother, Ken Masters spent his childhood as a spoiled degenerate due to his dad being a rich hotel tycoon. His father, realizing Ken will misuse his father's money to live a life of booze and debauchery, enrolled him at Gōken's dojo to learn humility, and learn martial arts. There, he met and befriended Ryu, Gōken's adopted son. Gōken taught them the art of Ansatsuken. After 10 years of training he and Ryu finally left the dojo to compete in Martial Arts Tournaments. Ken then returned to America and won the U.S tournament, where he would meet his future wife Eliza. Upon finally learning humility, Ken now lives a life of an honorable martial artist.
