    Aminishiki in 2018

    Intai, Haru 2018 at rank J4 although after seeing this past basho results I’d be thrilled to see him continue. On the other hand his knees and the Achilles rupture can only worsen if he does.

    Packed for 8 consecutive days shinjo shusse Shimpan bucho, Isegahama, watching preparations Y1w Hakuho (8-0) yorikiri M3w Hokutofuji (6-2) Hakuho gives Hokutofuji a little extra attention with a crispy-curt dameoshi... almost as if all his power was concentrated in his damaged right arm. Kachikoshi on the 8th day and Hakuho is looking unstoppable In shitakubeya taking his usual jelly supplement Refreshed Yokozuna bundled in two layered yukata Kisenosato's radiant shiomaki M4w Ichinojo (7-1) yorikiri Y2e Kisenosato (4-4) A futile look... and it's over Ichinojo doing very well this basho tells the press, "It was surprising.

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    A nice ipponzeoi koshinage during Terutsuyoshi vs Takagenji... and some nasty looks thrown Takagenji's way. No bow, had to return to do so, and another death stare. Keep in mind Isegahama as shimpan bucho is witnessing all of this.

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Jikanmae has practically disappeared recently when it was not so unusual during the Showa era. Takanohana and Kitazakura come to mind and if I'm not mistaken, Kotomitsuki as well.

    Rikishi Status Kyushu 2017 - Final

    There was news going around during jungyo last month saying that he twisted his right ankle during practice and that he heard a "buchibuchi" sound when it happened. I'm not really up on Japanese onomatopoeia, but a ripping sound?

    Sumo program announcements (pics and vids)

    This was blocked on youtube and so here for now: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x67yhzh I've been waiting for a better video to pop up to dl with no luck. The above is HD but with audio off sync between around 39 - 46:30 min. Guess I'll throw in Sunday Sports too: https://youtu.be/f28GdwuMbVk Women's Judo Olympic Gold medalist Haruka Tachimoto chats with Kisenosato. edit: I see Akinomaki has already posted the first video link above :) I'm going to try and upload anything that pops up this week. Most of the vids on YT will be unlisted after 24 hours just to avoid video take downs and strikes (I already have one and just being very cautious). Keeping the YT videos unlisted seems to be ok so far. Thanks a bunch, Akinomaki, for posting them.

    Sumo program announcements (pics and vids)

    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5yf93y?start=1765 Just to add a summary, Story of former Amateur Yokozuna Koichi Kato (44) once battling very closely with Takanohana(II) as a child and in junior high school. Kato defeated then Hanada Kouji (Takanohana II) after a considerable winning streak. He did not continue on to professional sumo. Even with his abilities and scouted by many sumo stables, he instead wanted to be a school teacher. At one point Kato thought, "There is no meaning to my existence." After watching that famous playoff of his childhood rival, Takanohana vs Musashimaru in 2001 he was inspired to go back to practicing sumo once more as an amateur with much success. At age 30, Kato won the amateur yokozuna title in 2003 of the JSF All Japan Sumo Championship Taikai .... a great story. He currently is employed as a staff member for a retirement home. May as well add my rip of just Kato https://youtu.be/GjbNEXuk4ag

    Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Orora precariously stepping up to the dohyo and he certainly looking fleshy-er with the recent record breaking weight gain. It looked as if he could have finished Takamiryu at tawara edge, but in the predictable outcome, Orora tilts and falls to the side. At 34 years old in his current state, I wonder how much longer he will keep this up.
