    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I agree, he seems to be having difficulty getting to the belt, let alone favored grip. Needs to get to his offense and execute.
  2. Can we expect Youtube digest of the upcoming basho?  Maybe you've answered this elsewhere, but I haven't been able find mention.  Regardless, all you do for the community is greatly appreciated.  Cheers!

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    There's something about his sumo that reminds me of a young Chiyotaikai. Yes, Takakeisho is a bit shorter and stouter, but they both attack their opponents like a cannonball.

    Looks like Ura lost day 3, is he still hampered by his injury? Any video available of his day 3 performance?

    BASHO TALK -- Natsu 2017 -- SPOILERS

    Maybe it's just me, but Takayasu's recent sumo reminds me a bit of Musashimaru...

    January Ura Compilation

    One also has to wonder whether his style of sumo will be effective against more fundamentally sound rikishi in makuuchi. Still, love watching his unorthodox sumo. Hope he's around for a while.

    Basho Talk - Hatsu Basho 2017 ** (SPOILERS)

    Thanks for the clarification. I surmised as much, just didn't know what the formal rule was. Cheers!

    Basho Talk - Hatsu Basho 2017 ** (SPOILERS)

    Long time lurker, first time poster. I found this quite confusing that Ura won this bout. Is the thinking that because he was the aggressor that he gets the win even though he touched first? Clarification of the finer points of this ruling would be appreciated. TIA!
