Below is from his Day 8 Blog:
Day 8 Loss Ucchari Vs Ama-zeki
Heisei Year 17 May Basho
You are now standing on the big, big stage of your life ..."
(From "Cheers" by Tsuyoshi Nagabuchi *)
It was a TOTAL LOSS.
I came back to my room and watched the video several times.
As I figured,
I AM NOT USING MY RIGHT WELL....
I am competing, well conscious of it too...
In today's case, when my opponent started to switch his arms, I thought it was the right time to go for it and moved forward...
I guess my attack was not of sufficient strength.
My back was too high...
However there was something to learn from this too.
COMPARED TO BEFORE, I AM MORE CONSCIOUSLY TRYING TO GO FOR OFFENSE AND THAT TACHIAI IS GETTING BETTER.
All I need to do is go out believing in myself ! ! !
There is no point in dragging the fact that I lost...
Especially in a time like this I should go on feeling stronger ! ! !
I may not able to correct all my errors,
but once the basho is over, I will reflect them little by little.
Right now I will do my very best on the immediate bout right in front of me.
I will do my best.
Currently my interview is on Momoko's Meet Well known Bloggers !
*In my view, veteran rocker Tsuyoshi Nagabuchi is Japan's Bruce Springsteen. When you go see him in his concert and listen to his CDs, you will agree with me too.
