- He looks indeed too fat for his strength. His shiko is not impressive either.
- He has surprisingly good tachi-ai posture. He holds his hips really low without showing any strain for the knees. Good flexibility under that mass ... this is encouraging.
- He showed patience after all the harite and just did his own sumo (i love this cliche).
in general .... i like what i've seen. There may be more about him than i thought .
Carries his weight well yes. It is said his weakness comes more apparent when he is attacked from the side. Definitely good hip strength and nice overall postures with all that weight. His shiko looked much better in one recent picture though.
