KAGEKI is an independent promotion that has been active since 1997. Founded by wrestlers Azteca & Satoshi Ogawa, it primarily promotes events in Hakata, a city in the Fukuoka region of Japan. They run an average of 1-2 shows a month. Most of it’s wrestlers are masked wrestlers and combine western and high-flying styles. KAGEKI talent appear on occasion in other promotions (most notably Yuto Aijima, who makes occasional appearances in NOAH) thanks in large part to good relationships Azteca has maintained with other wrestlers, most notably New Japan’s Jushin Liger. In response, other notable talents including Liger, Tatsumi Fujinami, Satoshi Kojima and CIMA among others have appeared in KAGEKI.
The promotion also now has it’s own weekly program on Ustream, usually featuring 2 matches per episode along with other content. It airs Fridays at 9 PM JST (8 AM ET).
