    I'm sorry, but I 'm running behind on so many things that I can't pay serious attention to the sumo games. Day 13 --Shodai

    Izutsu-oyakata has died

    He's Izutsu oyakata's younger brother.  Also, Shikoroyama-beya originally branched off from Izutsu. Both brothers wreslted for Izutsu, and their father was a previous Izutsu-oyakata. A lot of ties. Thanks for putting me straight with this information.

    Izutsu-oyakata has died

    Why Shirokoyama? He's not even in the same ichimon.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    Doing sensible training and becoming more confident, is my guess. He may have adapted to what is possible. He sees what works and concentrates on that. Whether that will be enough when he gets to the Makushita joi, let alone in the paid ranks, is a big question.

    Day 5 -- Mitakeumi
  12. It was getting to be almost impossible when I was there two years ago, and I arrived a week early not to have to disrupt proceedings when everyone was too busy concentrating on the tournament to allow foreign visitors, who would not know how to sit still for hours on end and not be a nuisance. Foreign tourists had gotten a bad name by then. Calling did not turn out to work. The only possibility was to wrangle an invitation somehow. In the end I went to stand outside Oitekaze-beya, which has floor-to-ceiling windows with a good view on the Oyakata's back and the proceedings in front of him. Endo hadn't come out, but everyone else had, and a week before the basho they were training hard. It was well worth the trip. Training does not stop because there is a basho, but unless you have connections, I'd say you have little chance.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Maybe he just entered to perform a dohyo-iri with his own to deshi -- the Dream Team -- just in case one of them drops out of Makuuchi next basho.

    Hakuho with heya attendants

    ... but not with that beautiful Kesho mawashi set they wore during their photographed May practice session. Maybe later this basho?

    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?
  20. Not going to create more accounts to read an article. It looks as if the content is predictable. If I'm wrong, surprise me with a summary.

    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.

    Oyakata kyujos Nagoya 2019

    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%"

    Oyakata kyujos Nagoya 2019

    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.
