Iijima Toyohisa (飯島 豊久) participated 13 times and only passed the First Stage in his rookie effort while he was a member of Japan's Professional Self Defense Force. He later moved on to be a martial arts dance instructor and is currently an actor in action movies. Because of his striking resemblence to Bruce Lee, he dressed like him in many competitions and was called "The Japanese Bruce Lee."

He cleared the First Stage in his first attempt, but then struggled with obstacles like the Rolling Maruta and the Jump Hang. In SASUKE 11, he became rather infamous for showboating through Stage One and timing out mere centimeters from hitting the finish buzzer. In that tournament, he leaped straight across the Tarzan Jump rather than use the ropes to swing. He then took a two competition hiatus, and promptly timed out on the final obstacle again.

After 7 years and a 15 Tournament break, he finally returned back in SASUKE 30. In the First Stage, he showboated again but cleared the first 2 obstacles. But then, he went out on the 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, his run was all cut. He was able to clear all the obstacles, however, he failed The Soritatsu Kabe. He took 2 attempts on the wall. On his last attempt, he was able to come close with 5 inches away from reaching up to the top of the wall with his hands after the buzzer ended. He was too exhausted on the Tackle Machine and had only 30 seconds at that point. It was also known that he did a roll on the dismount on the Orugōru as he cleared it.
