    New recruits for Haru 2020

    I put this in the Hatsu thread by mistake earlier, sorry. Here it is again: Joining Tagonoura-beya will be Kazuma Matsuki (松木 一真), after he finishes at Sumino Junior High in Niihama, Ehime prefecture. He has no sumo experience, but has participated in the martial art shorinji kempo and table tennis during his school years. He currently stands at 178cm, 77kg. Matsuki will move to the heya in mid-February, and will be the second active rikishi from Niihama, along with Sadogatake-beya's Kotonoshu. Tagonoura-oyakata (former Maegashira Takanotsuru) visited the school.

    Kimarite Statistics - 2019 Kyushu

    One paragraph somehow got lost from the notes, regarding two rikishi who use leg techniques occasionally: Tagonofuji had two similar sotogake wins in his fine 6-1 record, hooking his opponent's leg while moving forward to drop them to the ground. And on the final day, Tanahashi produced a lovely nimaigeri against the much larger Karatsuumi. And finally, here are the percentages for 2019. Yorikiri was back on top as the most common kimarite overall, accounting for 25.4% of bouts, but oshidashi wasn't far behind. It's the fourth year in a row with a less-than-1% difference between the two. Makuuchi was almost a dead heat, with just a single yorikiri more.

    Retirees after Kyushu 2019

    Awajiumi's danpatsu-shiki took place at Tagonoura-beya's senshuraku party. A combination of left knee trouble and his plans for the future led Shimakaze to retire. His danpatsu-shiki is set to take place next month, and then in January he will start work at Hazama Decoration, a company run by his family. He was also greeted with flowers by stablemates following his final bout on Senshuraku. Konno suffered a dislocation which tore the medial collateral ligament in his right knee; he is scheduled to have surgery at the end of January.
  5. Hi all, below are the kimarite statistics for all divisions in the final basho of 2019, in which Yokozuna Hakuho claimed his 43rd Makuuchi yusho. Abi, Kotonowaka and Kotoshoho share the honour of achieving kachi-koshi in all six basho, while much further down the ranks there was some joy at last for Higohikari, who registered his first kachi-koshi in five years. You wait eight years for a mitokorozeme to turn up, and then a second one follows right behind. Here it was Ishiura who performed the rare kimarite, combining a sotogake with a leg grab as he and Nishikigi toppled out of the dohyo. Maybe Fujinoteru has discovered the secret weakness of Shikihide-beya rikishi - tsutaezori! While not the first rikishi to chalk up multiple tsutaezori wins, he is the first to do it twice in the same basho, and both of his victims were from that heya. Kizenryu got his basho off to a successful start with a harimanage win on Shonichi, as he sought to end a run of three straight 3-4 records. Later in the basho that looked unlikely as he had to be helped away (direct video link, not database) from the dohyo after a hard fall, but to his credit he did get his kachi-koshi in his final bout, winning with his speciality uwatenage, the 138th of his career. Tobizaru showed patience in recording the only kekaeshi of this basho, waiting for an opportunity and then striking quickly as Akua stepped forward just a bit too far. It's the 6th kekaeshi win of Tobizaru's career, drawing him level with Kizenryu for most among active rikishi. Last basho I mentioned that zubuneri had not been seen for ten consecutive basho, a new record, but thanks to Satonofuji that run has come to an end here - he moved to 2-0 with a win against Bushi on Day 3. It was the 24th zubuneri win of his long career, ten more than any other rikishi in the available records. Speaking of Satonofuji, on Nakabi he came up against an equally-gifted rikishi in the form of Mori. Satonofuji got into a rather awkward position and applied an uchigake, only for Mori to suddenly sweep away his standing leg for an excellent susoharai win, the first of his career in fact. Amanoshima seems to have settled into the Makushita division lately, fighting at his highest career rank for the third consecutive basho. This time he chalked up the 33rd ashitori win of his career this basho, a quick and planned move which adds Takakento to his long list of victims. Sorakaze secured his kachi-koshi on Day 12 with a chongake win against Tenei. He is the second active rikishi to have more than one chongake win, although he has a long way to go to catch the other one, Kyokutaisei, with 16! Ebisumaru and Suzuki both thought they'd lost their encounter on Day 7 - as the action approached the edge it looked like Suzuki was going to try a last-ditch ipponzeoi, but in fact that action served to make Ebisumaru step over the tawara first for an isamiashi loss. There was no such confusion for the basho's only fumidashi though, as Wakaichiro stepped out against Teraoumi. Kimarite from kettei-sen bouts are not included in the statistics.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Spot on with those two; in addition, Shodai has a conditional Kanto-sho, but needs to beat Asanoyama to get it. Asanoyama has his own motivation as Takashima-oyakata says there's a big difference between 11 and 12 wins, hinting at an Ozeki run being on the line next basho.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    For the first time the sekitori with the most losses in the year will exceed the total of his counterpoint, the rikishi with the most wins. That dubious honour goes to Nishikigi, whose year of make-koshi has accumulated 57 losses so far - Asanoyama and Shimanoumi (counting two Juryo basho) can muster 56 wins at most if they win their remaining two bouts.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2019

    I'd like to see Yutakanami win the Jonokuchi yusho kettei-sen. The third of ten children, after finishing high school he got a job in a factory in order to help his family, but couldn't shake off his sumo dreams. He was surprised to find his parents supportive when he went to talk to them about entering ozumo, and the family has visited the basho to cheer him on. I do think he's the outsider though - he was defeated by Otsuji earlier in the basho, who in turn lost to Tosamidori, so the latter should be favourite. But maybe someone will spring a surprise. And that was the last bout of Awajiumi's career in fact, he is retiring after just over a decade on the dohyo. He signs off with his first ever 6-1 result, and moves on to a job as a stablehand at Sonoda Racecourse in his home prefecture of Hyogo.

    I'd say that has the same chance of happening as Hokutofuji-Okinoumi...

    Unfortunately it looks like another injury setback for Masunoyama, he suffered a left leg (perhaps knee) injury at the end of his bout against Dewanojo yesterday, he tries to shake it off but eventually has to stop halfway down the hanamichi. Fusenpai today.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    I find myself in the unexpected position of cheering for long-serving Sakigake - after almost five years in Makushita he's suddenly in range of a return to Juryo at Mk3e and 3-1, winning his visit today against Gagamaru who looks pretty uninterested and/or knackered these days. If Kyokushuho had won then surely they would have called a mono-ii for a video check (and you're right, it was obvious). Since Sokokurai won anyway, there's no point in checking if he actually won it earlier, so I think the kimarite will stand as the final uwatenage rather than a probable hikiotoshi.

    He's done it quite a few times, this one from 2015 Aki is the earliest I can find footage of but he probably did it before then.

    Basho videos- Makuuchi - Kyushu 2019

    After the first bout today I had to rewind quite a few times before I finally worked out that Hiro said "Nishikigi's uh, strong onslaught" and not, in fact, "Nishikigi's a strong ocelot". Thanks as always for the coverage Kintamayama!

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    This is the 14th basho since 1958 in which there were no undefeated rikishi in Makuuchi after only 5 days; the last time this happened was the 2001 Aki basho.
