    Sumo and American Football

    Nice one But serious. With Naruto and more recently Araiso going new ways, this questions isn't too far off. And there are versions with a torso dummy. Yes, chest-lending has some more aspects, but AFAIK there's no other device to simulate the pushing training on such a life-like level. One could even use it for training tsuppari.

    I wonder if some beya use devices like these? https://www.google.com/search?q=football+tackling+sleds&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwi5xOWX_7bqAhWZtKQKHSfCBOgQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=football+tackling+sleds&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQAzoECAAQEzoICAAQBRAeEBM6CAgAEAgQHhATOgYIABAeEBM6BggAEAgQHlD8TFiEamDvamgAcAB4AIABa4gBwgaSAQM2LjOYAQCgAQGqAQtnd3Mtd2l6LWltZw&sclient=img&ei=xD0CX7nSBZnpkgWnhJPADg&bih=686&biw=1422

    Rikishi fashion

    Kokonoe-oyakata and the wild bunch. Well, you just can't hide Chiyomaru. I hope we get more of these. Too bad a yukata isn't the proper street wear in a german backwater city. And mine still lacks a proper obi :(

    Who is this rikishi please?

    Kintamayama is the Hakuho of sumo youtubers. His earliest videos are vom Nagoya 2011. Enough material for some serious sumo binging. Now that he is slowly transitioning into retirement, Natto is a worthy successor.

    Who is this rikishi please?

    Always glad to help a newbie. Have you watched Kintamaya's videos on youtube? If you don't have, go here https://www.youtube.com/user/Kintamayama/videos scroll down to Hatsu basho 2019, it will make you happy.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    In terms of patterns 09 was more impressive, because nobody else in sumo history managed D-Y-D-Y-D-Y. That record is for eternity.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Come on Ama, you have been around here long enough to check sumodb and notice the 2 additional play-off wins. YO NSK! This man needs a high dose shot of sumo, ASAP or we might lose him.

    Consecutive yusho in diffeent divisions

    Only one so far having three consecutive yusho in three divisions starting in jonidan. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=7115 But 16 in total tried to do that. The one coming closest was this "gentleman" http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=878 Seven to have three from jonokuchi. Two are active in makuuchi at the moment. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=1347 http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=5079 http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=19 http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=2818 http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=6594 http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=12412 And then there's the one to have five starting from jonokuchi. He later became a Yokozuna. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=3806

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    I don't know exactly when i started watching sumo, but i don't remember having seen any Yokozuna before Akebono and Takanohana. And i don't know if Taka already was Yokozuna, when i started watching.

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    I only choose from those i've seen on TV since the 90s, and my favourite is Harumafuji. I go with @sumojoann. Without Hakuho he'd have been good for at least 20+ yusho. He had 9 under Hakuho's reign, which is an incredible feat. If he'd been still around by now, he'd have at least 2 more.
