Joshi Spotlight: GAEA Japan (January 1996)

GAEA JAPAN (January 1996):
* I’ve found a bit of stuff from the early part of GAEA’s 1996 shows- Jan. 14th & 28th. Most of this is “Rookies Getting Their Reps In” but we see more of Chigusa/Combat, plus Hiromi Yagi enters GAEA for a show!

HIROMI YAGI (JWP) vs. TOSHIE UEMATSU (GAEA):
