    Unsurprisingly if you go to NHK to look for this technique who else but him could feature in the video. https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/tv/sumo/techniques/75/

    Sumo articles by journalists who are Forum members/or not

    I read that this morning (UK time) a really good read & nice to see that he seems happy.

    Yes. I was expecting a matta from the shimpan maybe even after the bout. That was barely sumo let alone ozeki sumo.

    Better than a day with no sumo though. Also I noticed quite a few people not bothering with masks. As others have said it will be interesting to see how that goes during the basho

    Thats exactly my reading of it. If he goes on & keeps losing there will be talk of intai but if he goes kyujo now there will be much less damaging to him. Especially given the recent history of Yokozuna kyujo.

    Preparations of the Y/O - Haru 2022

    I've had that too. I found a source of some really good arancini that had pine nuts in them & it was all good until I got a horrible taste in my mouth that made me think there was something badly wrong with my teeth. Someone mentioned that pine nuts could cause that & the taste went away when I stopped eating them. It was really unpleasant Back on topic. There doesnt seem to be that much chatter pre this basho, although I realise this is often the case with the events outside of Tokyo.

    Thanks for that. I had gone looking for a recent photo of him & come up empty. He does look healthy & happy.
