    Hatsu Day 1 match-ups

    Indeed that's a pattern but there's more to it than just numbers, Taka's first "sanyaku" basho was at m1 he went 5-10 struggling in all his bouts against joi, his second run at m1 was almost the opposite, he handled everyone and even his losses were competitive(Onosho won their second encounter via hairtakikomi ) so TK is now ready for everyone in the top rankings, so dont be surprised with a double digit performance.

    Taka imo will do better than Onosho, his body is perfect for his sumo and that makes him such a force, a very underestimated prospect.

    Kakuryu Intai Speculation

    You'll all eat your words when Kak gets a 12-3/13-2 jun-yusho.

    Your "hearts banzuke"?

    The one who beat Torakio 3-0? He's so promising, would love to se a rivalry between them in makuuchi.

    New recruits for Hatsu 2018

    Tamawashi started at 133kg and he only reached 160 almost 10 years later at 30, if Naya wants a shot at makuuchi he needs to get in shape before his body falls apart, 166 is too heavy for a 188cm 19yr freshman.

    Yes, exemples like Kotoshogiku, started at 140 then went down to 125 , Takanohana started at 122 then slimmed down to 110, on the other side there's Onokuni who started at 94 and went all the way to 210.

    True i have a belly, but who am i compared to the grandson of one the greats and a big prospect? He shouldn't be anywhere near the shape of a mere fatty.

    Just look at the average newcomer, something needs to change. I'm at 187cm 130kg and my tits dont sag like that, 100% unhealthy.

    New recruits for Hatsu 2018

    He's just starting sumo so he will get way bigger from now, i think the average rikishi bulks about 30kg since the debut, that would make Naya about 200kg, that's Kaisei/Ichinojo size, plus he's like 19, look at all the greats, almost none started heavy like that, the perfect sumo body should be built through muscles and healthy fat, not saggy tits and beer/fast food bellies.

    They should consider raising healthy rikishi instead of (visceral)fat ones, hope he slims down so he can grow muscle and subcuntaneus fat. Bigger ins't better, imo you should enter sumo with not much fat so they can grow healthly and not die or have serious health problems at just 50, we need new rigorously supervised diets for this new era of HUGE rikishi or the worst is still to come.

    Kakuryu Intai Speculation

    I'll go ahead and say he will be in the yusho race, he tends to show up when in pressure.

    Kakuryu Intai Speculation

    He has to get at least 11 wins or he's in trouble, i think it will be Kak vs Kise this year to see who deserves to stay.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy new year right at this moment from Brazil, may 2018 be competitive in sumo, new age of young stars so my hopes are to have a new ozeki to challenge hakuho and try a run for Yokozuna in 2019, either way can't wait to see how this basho turns out and hopefully lead the amazingly stacked lower san'yaku to battle it out to see who shall rise. Also, a goodbye to ony of my all time favorites, i will certainly miss his dohyo iri and the way he could beat anyone even when injuried, even Hakuho, now that he is gone there are no real threats to Hakuho at the moment, i wish the Hakuho-Harumafuji era lasted longer, hell, i wish Asashoryu would've got more time in his career, a time where these three yokozuna would be active is too much to ask.

    January 2018 weigh in

    Nice news, to think this year he almost won a basho and a jun-yusho to follow is crazy compared to his performance on the last basho.

    January 2018 weigh in

    I think his great balance will be ruined by those extra kilos, Terunofuji is another guy who needs to slim down, his ligaments are bad duo to overweight in his whole life and in my opinion overtraining, he should cut some kilos while strenghtning his thighs and calfs, he's way down at m10 now and needs a refresh in his career, for god's sake Ichinojo is looking a million times better than him, that's worrying for me. Kaisei, Terunofuji and Ichinojo have the same problem of getting over their comfortable weight in my opinion, great potential but dumb training/eating.

    January 2018 weigh in

    Kaisei was great at 160/170 kilos, what is he thinking at 205?

    Asashoryu activities

    Now imagine if they recruited Bob before he fought for PRIDE, such potential.

    New recruits for Hatsu 2018

    I think we shouldn't expect him or his brothers to be as great as Taiho, at best we should expect him to reach maegashira. They even look more like Takatoriki imo.

    Bearded gyoji/wrestlers

    Indeed, he shaved on senshuraku.

    Asashoryu activities

    VERY happy to hear that an athletic sumo wrestler may try mma, if he learns how to strike i bet he can do good, no one would take him down anyway.

    Yokozuna kyujo records

    My right foot is forever damaged because of ripped ligament, i used to train judo but didn't put enough stretch and didn't train my lower body as much, one time i was defending a throw and i just felt a tear on my foot, the way to get 100% of my foot mobility again is surgery or physiotherapy to get used to it, i went for physiotherapy(no money for surgery) and now i feel like 80%, tough time and tough choices for Kise.

    Yokozuna kyujo records

    As surgery was out of the way,(imo surgery should be number 1 in injury case) the only thing left to do is try to compensate for the stupid decision to not have surgery by, as i said in the same post, getting fit and training hard, people say he barely does keikko and if so, please tell me how he will recover without surgery or training to get used to or strenghten his injury. Sitting around will certainly just make it worse and overtraining will too, "train hard" doesn't mean overtrain it means train to your limit and if his limit is not training much he needs surgery or retirement, after all he's a yokozuna, can't slack around no matter what.

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Sorry i was thinking about tomorrow's match, so yeah i think Okinoumi he's 9-2 and a threat for his yusho, but i dont know exactly how they make the match-up's.
