    Sumo documentary videos

    Hi, I found this documentary on mongolian sumo and mongolian rikishi (in Japan), by Aljazeera TV. Maybe not very deep, but interesting anyway. PS: I didn´t know whether to put this reply on the "mongolian wrestling" topic or the "sumo documentary" topic. (Scratching chin...) But as this is a documentary and is (also) about japanese sumo, I used this topic.

  3. Hi, I don't know it this documentary has already been posted in any thread, but I think it's a good one. It's about Osunaarashi, the Egyptian rikishi (who, if I remember correctly, put some posts in this forum before going to Japan). Hope you'll enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOV2nEGUtXI

    Harumafuji's 2nd Yusho

    It is great to see HAruMAfuji doing a fantastic basho, in being able to face Hakuho and taking his second yusho. I hope it'll be a zensh

    Second greatest ozeki

    In the XVIII and XIX centuries the title of Yokozuna was mainly honorific, more related to politics than to a sumotori's records in the doy

    Second greatest ozeki

    Kashiwado was a Yokozuna, wasn't he? Maybe Tochiazuma, Chiyotaikai and Takanohana Kenshi could compete with Kaio in the "contest" of the gratest ozeki ever.

    Paean to an Ancient Warrior

    It may look over-sentimental, even cheesy but I had tears in my eyes as read some of comments above. (I am not worthy...) Good bye Kai

    Kaio's new record

    Kaio, even stumbling and with less-than-great bashos in the last few years, finally achieved 1046 career victories, a new record. Congratulations Kaio-zeki (Sigh...)

  14. Kaio, who in the last years became one of the kings of kadoban, the master of 8-7 and whose retirement has been almost demanded by many, is doing his best basho since 2004. Gambarite Kaio-san!! (Sign of approval...)

  16. An article about this in the Japan Times. It is a pity that such a feat (3 yusho without defeat and 47 victories in a row --and still counting) has been overlooked by the recent scandals. http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/nn20100804a7.html

    Sumo documentary videos

    Hi in bygone days you could find "Mongolian Eagle" (english version) online, but I think it is no longer possible (and even then, watchable just in some areas). I don't know if you are interested on that, but you can find "Sumo Science", a NHK Beyond the Naked Eye documentary, in Youtube.

    Pardon my ignorance or naivete, but isn't rikishi forbiden to drive cars? Is Asashoryu going to have a chauffeur? (In a state of confusion...)

    A Tale of Two Yokozuna: Triumph of the Ewoks

    It's said he used a straw from the tawara to tie it up. That's correct. The bout continued for a while with Tochi's hair untied. When there was finally a pause in the action, the gyyoji halted the bout and Tochi went down to dohyo-shita to retie his mage. There is a famous picture of Tochi standing dohyo-side with loose hair, looking very much like a warrior out of a Kurosawa samurai film after a long, tough, battle. Could have been this fight? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_kQZQtSP2k
