Kubota Takayuki (久保田 崇之) is a movement therapist who was the one of the eight qualifiers in the SASUKE 21 Trials. In the trials, he cleared the "Final Stage" in 50.26 seconds, and managed to get the #8 qualifying spot.
During the tournament, he showed great speed, clearing the first three obstacles quickly. On the Jumping Spider, he became the first (and so far only person), to clear without using the trampoline. In a manner similar to how Shiratori Bunpei attempted the Jump Hang, Kubota used one foot to push off from the trampoline onto the walls. However, on the Half-Pipe Attack, he slipped on the half-pipe and fell into the water without touching the rope.
He participated in the SASUKE 22 Trials, but did not make it past the third round, as he failed to clear 37.5m of balance beams in 15 seconds.
