    The yokozuna council issued Kisenosato a notice of its dissatisfaction with his performance after he became the first grand champion in 87 years to post four straight opening losses at a 15-day tournament in November.

    When was this notice of dissatisfaction issued? Immediately after the 0-4 kyujo or this Monday?

    Is it just me or do others think that in view of his history it is a pity about what

    happened to Takanoiwa?

    In view of his history I think it was only a matter of time before this troubled character would spark another violence incident that would put pressure on him to leave. The only thing that surprised me is that it happened so soon.

    Down to the last few calendars now. Won't be getting any more in once they are all gone. So be quick or risk spending 2019 looking at picturesque mountain on your wall rather than burly men.

    The calendar arrived !!
    Looks great. Also nice to see Juryo in there, and the group photos of the urakata. Thanks John!

    One thing I'm puzzled about: Why include a banzuke from May... I already have a bunch of old ones.


  5. Sekiwake. He'll be sent tumbling but come back up again. This year we've seen him progress from a lethargic mountain ("come and move me if you dare") to an attacking mountain. The glimpses of his potential are scary. He'll become more confident tapping that potential, but he may still have a bad basho or two stopping an Ozeki run.

    9-6 high, 3-12 low.

    I don't think he'll continue if demoted to Makushita. Fighting back to the paid ranks might call for more abuse of his battered body than he is willing to sustain, and he doesn't need to prove anything. The end will just be a new beginning. A host of young men are eager to learn from him how to perform while coping with injuries.


  7. Welcome to the forum Oushimaru.
    As for your sporting plans, I don't think there are any sumo clubs in your area, but the USA seems to have a good amateur sumo organization, maybe they can tell you if there are any other practitioners in your area.
