    Latest kabu-babu changes

    So, what happens now? Do the few rikishi that were in Izutsu stable return there, including yokuzuna Kakuryu I believe? Or will they remain in their new stables, and the new Izutsu oyakata has to start recruiting from zero?

    Hakkiyoi! Ozumo promotion song

    It's a great tune to exercise to at home, in these stay at home days! I really worked up a bit of a sweat!

    Enho - predictions?

    There are certainly rice bales in these last two videos, but I would be concerned about how small the room is. Anyone flying off this dohyo is going to slam straight into the walls!

    Enho - predictions?

    The thing that I noticed immediately, was that there were no rice bales at the edge of the dohyo. Of course this is just a practice ring, but I would have thought that learning how to use the tawara to your advantage, and to be able to do the tawara two-step, were essential things for a rikishi to learn and practice.

    My thoughts exactly , although I would be glad to be proven wrong.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    What I find slightly mistifying, is that Izutsu is run by ex-Sakahoko, who is the elder brother of ex-Terao, the boss of Shikoroyama beya, which appears to be one of the larger and better run stables.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    I would say Terao, Kirishima and of course, Chiyonofuji. I must be getting old!

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Here is an interesting aside, which not everyone might know. Hakuho and Douglas Adams (he who gave us 42 as the answer to the meaning of Life, the Universe, and everything) share the same birthday - March 11th. And I feel honoured to share it with two such illustrious persons too! Getayukata

    I thought that Tochinoshin would certainly be No. 1, but he doesn't even get a mention!

    New kesho mawashi (pics)

    I agree that the kimono is more memorable than the mawashi. I'm not sure that I would say that it outshines it however, maybe that it it is more striking! Cheers, Getayukata

    More birds! I am loving these ones too.

    New kesho mawashi (pics)

    Oh, as a birdwatcher I love this one! It's a great portrayal of a Japanese Pheasant. It will have to go on my list of top 10 kesho mawashis!

    Wait, you're a birder too? That would make two Geordie birding and sumo enthusiasts on this forum!
