After moving to Oahu with his family at age 12, Yoshiaki Fujitani had to adjust to his new life while attending Washington Intermediate School. At Washington Intermediate School, he was a part of an extortion case, in which a fellow student tried to force him to give him money. He also talks about his experience in music class, where he regretted his decision to play the violin. Instead of participating in American sports at school, he practiced Judo and Kendo.
