Iijima Toyohisa (飯島 豊久), now Iijima Hibiki (飯島 響), is a very popular SASUKE competitor due to his resemblance with Bruce Lee. He had competed fourteen times, starting since he is a member of Japan's Professional Self Defense Force.


He was one of 100 lucky competitors to be able to compete in the first tournament. There, he cleared First Stage with ease, clearing with 19.4 seconds left. Then, in Second Stage, he will waste almost all of his time traversing Spider Climb, resulting in him timing out prior to Goren Hammer. This will remain his best results and the only time he cleared First Stage.

In SASUKE 2, he was expected to clear the unchanged First Stage, however his run surprisingly ended on Maruta Nobori.

In SASUKE 3, though he was able to beat Maruta Nobori and new Rolling Maruta, due to his showboating, he was shown running low on time before timed out on Rope Climb. This won't be the last time his showboating cost him a place in Second Stage.

In SASUKE 4, he competed in the iconic Bruce Lee yellow outfit for the first time. It didn't helped him at all as he failed Rolling Maruta, which had been modified.

In SASUKE 5, he will beat Rolling Maruta, but on Jump Hang, he didn't jump high enough and he wasn't able to even reach the net.

After a hiatus of one tournament, in SASUKE 7, all of his training was worth it, as he was able to beat Jump Hang. But, despite trying several times, fail to scale Soritatsu Kabe and timed out there.

The next three tournaments feature disappointing failures. Due to the rain that struck the course, he fail to beat Ōdama in SASUKE 8. He then fail Jump Hang in SASUKE 9, before getting another failure on Rolling Maruta in SASUKE 10.

To prepare for SASUKE 11, he train together with Igano Hibari, who also struggle with Jump Hang. They even went to analyse his trampoline jump movement on slow-motion to make sure he finally clear it. The training showed results, as he beat not only Jump Hang, but also Soritatsu Kabe. However, due to showboating early in the stage, he timing out mere centimetres from hitting the finish button, despite he leaped straight across Tarzan Rope rather than use the ropes to swing to save the time. He then took another hiatus, before returning in SASUKE 14. He however once again timed out on Rope Climb, probably due to another showboating. He will then take a long hiatus.

After a break of nine years, he finally returned in SASUKE 30. In First Stage, he showboated again but cleared the first two obstacles, before he went out on Hedgehog. It was shown that he didn't wait for a path to get through it and instead just rushed to try and get across.

In SASUKE 31, he was All-Cut. It was known that he was able to clear most of the obstacles, with him doing a roll on the dismount on Orugōru as he cleared it. However, he was too exhausted on Tackle and had only 30 seconds to attempt Soritatsu Kabe, which despite his best, was never able to be scaled.

Away from SASUKE

He was currently an Action Actor for Japanese films and series. He also ran his own Show Pub (as shown on his profile during SASUKE 30).

According to his Twitter profile, he had already compete in SASUKE 14 times, which means he was present in either SASUKE 12 or SASUKE 13. However, it was never confirmed.
