    Ex-Takanoyama emerges

    Founders pictures are common in dojos around the world. they are placed in a place of honor.(shimoza) not stuck in a window definitely not a place of honor.

    Ex-Takanoyama emerges

    Great to see Taknoyama again. Gym is set like a mma fighters place but interesting to see Jigoro Kanos picture stuck in the window, kind of disrespectful.

    Ichinojo acquires Japanese citizenship

    I am not sure if Ichinojo and Kaisei want to become stable masters I think they fear the loss of Chanko Nabe more.

    Hakuhou caught watching Judo

    I am very happy nothing much came of this event. while not Hakuhos greatest fan, I believe he is the greatest Yokozuna.and defines hinkaku.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Takagenji fought a smart fight against a smaller man who comes in extra low face down and is a leg grabber. I am surprised all his opponents don't try to ring his bell with a flat hand uppercut to get the little prick upright.

    The English commentators- views

    I enjoy all the commentary. as I am not Fluent in Japanese the various English commentators help me understand more easily even the ones who add the letter U after the O as in Kaio. Thanks and I Appreciate all the work you have put into the Sumo Kintamayamau.

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    Favorite yokozuna Wajima my least favorite kitanoumi Kita was a Dai yokozuna I just did not care for his style. Favorite non Yokozuna takanohana the ozeki and Takamiyama.

    March basho 2021

    Terunofujis story is fantastic. A longtime fan I agonized at his injury and fall in rank. I hope he can get another yusho and at least a jun-yusho together very soon because I don't see him staying heathy enough to remain at the top of the meatgrinder. To me he looks like a Yokozuna but I think he is reaching his limit rapidly.

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    iMHO Shodai is indeed lucky. the decisions after the monoii were correct calls but they were close calls. Shodai did not look as strong as he did earlier in the basho. I hope He regains his earlier power

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    During the Pandemic both Yokozuna should heal> Yokozuna privilege' not given to lessor rikishi.
  12. Both Yokozunas today are capable of doing Yokozuna quality sumo. if they must withdraw to heal so be it .That is a privilege they earned by getting where they are ranked. For the time being they are favorites to win any Basho they enter. They may be on the downslope of their careers. but not quite at the end of them.

    January Ura Compilation

    I believe he will have a short but exciting career. His sumo is effective because of his speed and flexibility. Top level body condition is hard to maintain look at him leaving the Doyo. This guy puts it all on the line except for the days he henkas. He is getting beat up pretty badly.
