    Preparations of the masses- July 2022

    Ura trained at home today. "I just want to able to do sumo for 15 days," he said , after going kyujo on day 13 last basho at 9-4. "My technique and power are lacking at the moment. My injuries are preventing me from being where I want to be, but it has nothing to do with my turning 30. If not for the injuries, I could do more training. I have gained weight but have not been able to fully take advantage of that. That's where my potential lies," he summed.

    Preparations of the masses- July 2022

    New Makuuchi Nishikifuji is training fiercely for Nagoya. His old left elbow injury tends to flare up here and there but today he had nearly 50 bouts. "I'm just doing all I can, bout numbers included.." he said. He divulged that Terunofuji asked him to join him for the Yokozuna dohyo-iri.. It hasn't ben decided officially yet . "The Yokozuna has always helped me out. If the opportunity arises, I hope he will let me serve him.." said Nishikifuji hopefully.

    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    Hilarious video of rikishi playing rock paper scissors. The rules are a bit different- once you win in the classical way, it continues where the winner has to guess which way the loser will look. The winner points up/down/left/right/. If the loser moves his head in the guessed direction, the winner gets the point-easier than it sounds. 2 points and you win the match. Too bad there was no tournament. Funny.

    Sports Gambling In Japan

    But isn’t gambling on sports illegal in Japan? Or has that changed? I mean, can you go into a place and bet on sports, not virtually? Is betting via the internet legal now for Japanese citizens? Specifically, betting on baseball, soccer/ football and sumo?

    New kesho mawashi

    Gounoyama goes and gets a new keshomawashi from his alma mater Saitama Sakae: "Gives me impetus- getting a makekoshi after this has no meaning so I have to properly get a kachikoshi!!.."
  18. 4th time kadoban Shoudai trained at home today, facing visitor Nishikigi and others, going 6-5. "It's better to face a new type of opponent in training rather than face the same guys over and over again. To sum last basho up (a hard 5-10..), I couldn't do my own sumo at all for the entire 15 days. Now, I'm thinking about swift attacks after the tachiai and not letting my opponents do their own sumo, " he explained. He weighed 175 kilos when he won the yusho in September, but now, he weighs 162.3 kilos. "I'd like to gain some weight if I can.. I'm eating a lot of take away jiro ramen. I intend not only to increase my weight, but to increase the number of bouts in training as well as I prepare for the basho, " he quipped.

    How many komusubi did you go for? (Nagoya GTB)

    Kiribayama, for reasons stated in the quote before this

    How many komusubi did you go for? (Nagoya GTB)

    Easy - Kiribayama with a 10-5 at M2. Takanoshou was 11-4 at W4. Why both of them? I thought Kiribayama should come before Takanoshou. A 10-5 from M2 seemed to me a better shot than an 11-4 from M4, for some reason..

    Preparations of the Y/O Nagoya 2022

    Mitakeumi has revealed today that he injured his right shoulder last basho. "I'll be entering the basho with no real preparation," he admitted. He injured the shoulder on his day 1 bout against Takayasu, when he fell off the dohyo. So far he has only done some shiko in training and it is not clear if he did any sumo at all. "I'm not impatient yet, but I am feeling uncertain. I'll be ready in time for Nagoya," he summed.

    Shohozan intai

    Papers are saying he has no kabu so he is embarking on his "second life", meaning away from the official Kyokai. Maybe heya manager?

    Preparations of the masses- July 2022

    Shimanoumi got married a few days ago. Today he was present at keiko and was 10-6, going 4-1 against Juryo Churanoumi and Hidenoumi. He missed kachikoshi by one win last basho. "I shall be collecting that debt," he promised. His new wife is supportive and encourages him to do good Sumo and stay healthy. "I can really concentrate on sumo now that she has my back. She is an excellent cook as well!" he enthused.
