The 29th wanpaku sumo national tournament was held yesterday in the kokugikan.

About 400 4th to 6th year primary school rikishi took part, separate for each year.

 

final rounds: http://www.ustream.t...corded/36487583

several other videos are listed there from earlier in the tournament, (quality exactly?) the same on Youtube:

The result page still lists last year's data, with the big Touma as the 6th year wanpaku yokozuna in the 28th tournament:

and the 5th year yokozuna in the 27th tournament (only the 4th year tournament is in the video), in his 4th year the videos look even more incomplete.

Really nice dohyo-iri (Ustream) of the previous 5th and 4th year wanpaku yokozuna, now in 6th and 5th year (I don't know why they have a yokozuna number one less than the tournament they won)

 

25th Tokyo tournament (preliminary)

 

They also have nice and big pdf reports for each tournament, so far from 2007-2012, with some pictures and many data about the tournament bouts and the rikishi.

 

Some interesting scenes: a 4th year semi-f. 2013 winner showing a winners pose and getting reprimanded by the referee (21:25). The tearful faces after losses apparently are admissible.

 

In last year's bouts there even was a nichonage and a nice uwatenage.

 

Edit: the positioning may be a mess when the video was watched once - after deleting the cookies from Youtube the 3 links above start at the right position.

 a bit too much excitement after the bout starting at 21:25 min. followed by some weird hand moves by the gyoji

Touma in the interview as 6th year wanpaku yokozuna

 

His sumo is quite unattractive, later on his wins are mostly hatakikomi, going more and more backwards. In the final he even pulled a henka-matta.

28th tournament, round: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, qf, sf, final.

(if the positioning is wrong, delete Youtube cookies)

Much more interesting to watch is the 1st son of Tokitsukaze-oyakata (Tokitsuumi), 2013 5th year ozeki (2nd place) Hirokazu Sakamoto, who won the 4th year Hakuho cup in February - 6th year there was of course won by Touma.
2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th

Qf, sf, final.

 

winning the preliminary Tokyo tournament, sf, qf,

21:07: 2nd 31:44: 3rd (won't position)
