    YDC meeting after Haru 2021

    Hakuho wants to do the dohyo-iri in the Olympics and the Kyokai needs a Yokozuna to do the dohyo-iri in the Olympics. So I believe an Intai for him after Nagoya and before Aki.

    March basho 2021

    I've been here in the forum for about 8 and half years by now - I think I am Sandanme by now Too much older members right now I remember 2014 more os less, when Teru was not sanyaku yet, we're all talking about the possible 32th basho from Hakuho and I said something like "Teru can't rely only in strength" - he was getting some longish bouts giving morosashi and wining by kimedashi. He now appears much more... round? Smart? Better? this time. I'm glad to see him in this form.

    Yomiuri sumo survey

    Tell me wrong, but Sumo is a Japanese thing with more than "contact fights" involved (culture, religion). Does the Kyokai identified any ploblems? If not, no problem will be addresed. We're mostly strangers and aliens to this "sport".

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    Yes - I think they'll make him get double digits in the next two basho. Something around 43+ wins in 4 basho. Takakeisho made 42 in 4 basho in sanyaku until promotion. If I had the query-fu I would like to research the promotion criteria used for former repromotion to Ozeki (besides the direct 10 wins from S)

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    I dont think they will promote Teru with a 33 this time, maybe 4 basho above 10 wins? I hope that he gets 11 wins
  7. Goeido was 15 Sekiwake and 4 Komosubi before Ozeki
  8. I think Terunofuji has a plan: while in the Yusho race, fight; if out of the race but 10+ wins, kyujo (but starts a Ozeki run); if out ou the race and less than 10 wins, keep fighting

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Okezi first. He'll need a lot to get back there, more than the 33 usual wins
