    Rikishi Status - 2020 Aki Basho

    Ya, I think you're probably right. Either way, it looks like an uncomfortable condition to move around with!

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Aki Basho

    Noticed that myself, think he's got genu varum aka bandy legs. There are different causes for that, most being childhood illness or genetics. I've seen video from him back in middle school, where he was also a very heavy lad, and his legs were the same.

    This is a shame. I was looking forward to seeing if Shiraishi could break through to juryo.

    Takakeisho simply pushes too hard and aggressively for Terunofuji to be so upright and slow in finding a grip. Down in juryo Tsurugisho has really plumped up, not far off joining the 200kg club now... Down in makushita my favourite prospect , 19-year-old Kitanowaka,, starts 1-0 at Ms14, be prepared to see him as a sekitori next year!

    Who are these rikishi? (all photos from August 2019)

    From a browse through the yearbook, the closest resemblances I could find were to Kotonawa and Kototaiko, banzuke-gai specialists from Sadogatake.

    First guy Kagayaki? He has the same type of knee wrapping, and the same, well, you know
  9. Going by ozumo measurements, Hokutofuji and Kiribiyama have grown about an inch and a half in their mid-20s, while Asanoyama has shrunk by about the same amount since turning pro. Basically, I've noticed that they seem to be all over for a lot of the competitors....

    What is the closest martial art to Sumo?

    Not the most similar, but boxing has some similarities to oshi sumo, especially the use of subtle pivots and being able to move the arms rapidly .
