    Kimarite Statistics - 2022 Aki

    Four kimarite made their first appearance of the year in this basho. Most prominent was tsutaezori thanks to Ura using it in Makuuchi, but it also appeared twice more in the lower divisions. It's the first time tsutaezori has appeared three times in a basho since it was introduced in 2001. Who says you can't teach old dogs new tricks? Nearly 30 years after his debut, Terunosato got the first koshinage win of his career, and the first by anyone for two years. It was originally called a kubinage by the announcer, but later corrected. It's a rare treat indeed, only the 16th in the last 31 years, the period for which complete kimarite records are available. On the final day of the basho, Mineyaiba performed a textbook example of osakate to win his bout against Sasakiyama, although a mono-ii was called to confirm that the gyoji got it right, which he did. The other kimarite making its first appearance of 2022 was uchimuso, although I didn't see that one. I don't often mention the non-winning techniques in the notes, but isamiashi was conspicuous by its absence here - this was the first basho with none since 2010 Aki. In contrast, there were 16 tsukitaoshi recorded here, the most in a basho since 2001 Nagoya. Kimarite from kettei-sen bouts are not included in the statistics.

  2. As usual after an Aki basho, the rijikai has decided some promotions amongst the urakata, although it's a very short list this time - only two major promotions for the already top-heavy gyoji ranks, none for the yobidashi and four in the lower tokoyama ranks. They take effect on December 26th, the release date for the 2023 Hatsu banzuke. Gyoji: Kimura Asanosuke > to Makuuchi Kimura Ryosuke > to Juryo After seven years as top Makushita gyoji, Kimura Ryosuke can at last hit the silks, although he'll still be officiating Makushita bouts for a while yet. I wonder if he'll change his name when the promotion takes effect, or stick with his real given name. Tokoyama: Tokoteru > to Santo (3rd class) Tokoyu > to Santo Tokoazuma > to Santo Tokohibiki > to Yonto (4th class) Still no promotion for Itto (1st class) Tokohira, who will reach the mandatory retirement age in May. I wonder why.

    Retirees after Aki 2022

    Kakutaiki joined Izutsu-beya in 2006 and was a longtime tsukebito of Kakuryu. When the heya closed he was one of three survivors who moved to Michinoku-beya; only Hagane is left now. Tatsunoumi, the younger brother of Kitaharima, retires after nearly a decade on the dohyo. The heya posted three pictures from his danpatsu-shiki at the senshuraku party. Kyokuhozan retires after 21 years on the dohyo, leaving Kyokutaisei as the last active rikishi (though surely not for much longer) from the original Oshima-beya. Sawanofuji was a dai-Persister at the start of his career, chalking up 18 make-koshi before finally claiming his first kachi-koshi. He was also the first victim of Hattorizakura.

    Oshozan thoroughly deserves his 6-1 record this basho. After winning his fourth bout he couldn't stand flat on his left foot and had to hobble away on the heel. I took a screenshot because I was sure I'd be using it to report his kyujo, but he stayed in and won his remaining bouts. Valiant effort from the longest-serving rikishi in Naruto-beya.

    Matsuchiyama-oyakata (former Maegashira Bushuyama) stood in for him, and will do so again on the final day.

    Lower-division Torikumi Aki Basho 2022

    8 Nishikiori (Jd82e) 0-6 Daitensho (Jd103w) 1-5 9 Kirimaru (Jd95w) 1-5 Detachi (Jd81w) 0-6 18 Takabaho (Jd52e) 0-6 Okuniyama (Jd68e) 1-5 29 Kiryu (Jd8e) 0-6 Kainowaka (Jd23e) 1-5 Typically, 0-6 rikishi meet each other in the last round of torikumi, but that wasn't an option in Jonidan this basho - all four are from Miyagino-beya, resulting in these bouts.

    One returnee and one withdrawal ahead of the final round of lower division action. Returning: Sd31w Wakakinsho (withdrew Day 3) Withdrawing: Jk16e Wakakaneko Wakakaneko entered the basho on Day 11, the bout he fought that day ensuring he stays on the next banzuke. It's a bit unusual to do that before the last round of torikumi, but maybe the idea was to fight a basho-weary opponent and avoid a potential returnee of higher calibre in the last round (not that anyone else has entered, but they wouldn't have known that). The following rikishi did not make an appearance and those that don't retire will drop off the banzuke: Jk4e Yamada Jk8e Teraosho Jk11w Tairikuyama (intai) Jk12e Chikunokura Jk14w Shokeima Jk15e Sawanofuji Jk15w Hokuozan

    Two in, two out among the lower divisions ahead of Day 11. Returning/Entering: Sd46w Saidaiji (fusenpai Day 2, withdrew Day 3) Jk16e Wakakaneko - suffered a leg injury in his final bout of the Haru basho, absent since then. Withdrawing: Ms38w Mishima - right leg was twisted a bit when he fell in his last bout, although he walked away fine at the time so maybe something else. Jk18w Higohikari - had to be helped away after a brutally hard fall off the dohyo in his last bout, which was his fourth in as many days after a four-day break. Sometimes such wonky schedules happen down in Jonokuchi.

    No idea about testing but senshuraku parties are finally returning after this basho.
  10. Yubinhaad

    Aki 2022 discussion (results)

    Agreed. I was happy to see Takenawa-oyakata (former Sekiwake Tochinonada) call him over after the bout to give him a talking to, which hopefully was about the shove. He is also rather lazy in the shikiri and has the general air of "what am I doing down here? I'm above this" which I dislike intensely. Ability-wise he's clearly at a higher level, but attitude-wise he's right at the bottom for now.

    Rikishi Status - 2022 Aki

    Ahead of Day 9, one rikishi effectively starts his basho while one more has withdrawn. Returning: Sd85w Hokutoyakumo (fusenpai Day 2, withdrew Day 3) Withdrawing: Jd69w Fubu - looked like a relatively minor right leg injury when he was put down by Asahimaru after a tsuridashi. One other note, Jd101w Sawada had a fusenpai on Day 7 but hasn't withdrawn, he's scheduled to fight Terunosato on Day 9.

    Nothing peculiar about it - his shusshin in Aso-shi in Kumamoto, and Aso-san is the largest active volcano in Japan. See also an earlier rikishi.

    A single withdrawal among the lower divisions ahead of Day 7: Sd27w Kinotsukasa - suffered what seemed to be a leg injury after leaping from the dohyo on Day 5, the fall was out of shot of the Abema camera but he could be seen limping as he was helped away.
  14. Yubinhaad

    Aki 2022 discussion (results)

    I doubt it, he had a tasukizori win last November so it's a technical ability he has in his arsenal rather than Ura-inspired.
