Tsubasa applied first for the Sao Paulo Youth team when arriving in Brazil. After being accepted due to his great skills, Roberto Hongo started to train him. One year immediately passed and a 17-year-old Tsubasa was accepted for the professional team, becoming a regular midfielder and was helped by his sempai Radunga to start becoming his replacement by the end of that year championship.
When Tsubasa debuted on the team, he became the pivot gamemaker, with the assist of captain Radunga as volante. Tsubasa in the two year gap before the Battle of World Youth arc, he mastered the Flying Drive Shot which he used to score, together with the overhead, volleys, and other great techniques of his own, as well as doing great assists with his Drive pass. Even so, Tsubasa also relied on his sempais two-top forwards and later on with the help of Pepe (who debuted later on), he was able to make the São Paulo Combi with him. On the match against Santana's CR Flamengo, he learnt to do the Santana Turn and in Road to 2002 manga, he was able to do a two-step overhead in order to do the final goal.
