    Next Yokozuna??????

    I don't know it is a good thing that these youngsters already have a huge weight. That could spell trouble for them in the longer run with stress on their joints and ligaments that have not been supported by solid muscle. It's far better for them to build their bodies along with gaining sumo experience. They may have to lose weight first before they can do that. Look at Iwasaki/Tobizaru. He was a stick man on his debut. Somewhere along the road, a rikishi has to find the shape and the weight that lets him do his most effective sumo. Can he do that while he is carrying a lot of excess bulk?

    OK, I stand corrected. So SATO Takahiro has a bigger losing streak since pro debut, thanks to Hattorizakura's surprise win on Day 6 of Natsu 2016. But I'm sure he holds the record for persistence. Imagine. Living a penniless life and making a career out of being constantly defeated,

    Training courses for the NSK members

    That looks like a good approach. Also, rikishi at different seniority levels face different challenges, responsibilities and temptations.

    Basic cardiac life support (BCLS) is very very important. It saves lives. People should be taught how to do it properly. Return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) chance of people who have cardiac arrest and not treated ASAP (i.e. no CPR and/or AED) is decreasing fast and results in death. It amaze me that they react fast recognising the sign of cardiac arrest and they could do it properly. They did a very very good job saving live! Yeah... of course I should have also said, "...and chance of survival without either is 0%"

    I recently did a first aid course and the numbers don't lie: chance of survival with manual CPR: 5-7%. Chance of survival with AED: 80%. CPR is an emergency action to keep the patient alive while others search for the nearest AED. In fact everyone should know where the nearest AED is.

    How far will Terunofuji go?

    I woud have considered middle third Makushita if there were such a choice. Because the Makushita joi is as much a meat grinder as the Makuuchi one, with hungrier and younger contestants fighting for those scant places in that tiny elevator. In the onslaught of that cauldron, he'll have to go all-out for the revival of his sekitori status. Back to the top or a career-ending injury. It has been done before, I know. But Terunofuji isn't going to be miraculously healed of all ills, despite of what Ajigawa can teach him that he hasn't taught him already.

    Naruto's trio of undefeated yusho contenders in Jonidan accounts for 21 of his 46 wins.
