    Shiko by everyone

    just read an old Sumo World issue about 2 Hawaiian kids joining sumo September 1976, one whole hour of shiko every morning!

    Shiko by everyone

    that's a lot of shiko! supposedly one of the most important exercises in sumo. does anyone know that the expected shiko per day that a rikishi is suppose to do. for some reason the number 100 pops up in my mind....

    Toyonoshima intai

    they usually look sharp in a suit. i found that the hardest part is that they have no clue on how to put on a tie.

    I am really into my scanner now. I think I will post my articles after these back covers? Maybe even the front covers. COVID-19 activity.....I've got free time.

  14. I have started to post my back covers of Sumo World on an Instagram account. I am anxious for any feedback, so I can decide whether to continue or not.

    Sumo and American Football

    I figure a lineman can convert to a sumo wrestler faster than a sumo wrestler converting to a lineman. Akebono played football, but if I recall, basketball was his first sport. Not sure how much of us are on this facebook group though I love this guy, Bum Day, in his four point stance, looking quite sumo-like.
