    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    Terunofuji 10 years ago doing judo wearing a Polo shirt... Doesn't need to wear Judogi anyway. In the next frame he probably grabbed the two guys by the belt and lifted then above his head until they cry for mercy...

    So much content for this jungyo. No sure if it was reported already but Takanosho who is in line to return to makuuchi next basho injured his right knee the other day and therefore pulled out of the jungyo yesterday. His stablemate Takagenji who was out from the start is not joining any time soon. According to his oyakata "The pain in his ankles is not gone yet". As for Takakeisho, as it's been reported above he is very unlikely to join. "His right knee is doing better day after day" according to the oyakata, for now he is receiving treatment and doing rehabilitation with specialists.

Today butsukari geiko with Abi "Promoted to Komusubi last basho thanks to some Banzuke luck" Ryuden vs "likely not promoted to Komusubi next basho thanks to banzuke bad luck" Hokutofuji. Asanoyama vs Abi Training for the new Beyonce clip Chiyomaru (warning: do not watch if you are squeamish, very intense footage)

    Butsukari geiko Tochiozan and Mitakeumi. Mitakeumi seems to have lost a bit of weight but still a few kilos to go Imo.

    I asked a couple of japanese friends before you commented and finally got an answer this morning. From what I was told "weak" seems to be the closest translation :)

    Post liked by the sumo channel on twitter, this is a post from a fan who went to the jungyo and got this autograph from Shikimori Inosuke the highest ranked Gyoji. He takes the time to draw a different gunbai with different kanji for each fan apparently which is pretty cool if you ask me. My boy Konosuke is still the best though.

    I looked a bit and 脆い also means sentimental, easily moved etc... I wonder if he didn't use that meaning and not fragile in that case. The reason I'm thinking that is because he used で to connect with the next part of the sentence. I reckon he would have use が instead to mark the opposition you translated as 'he is fragile but he as heart'. I'm not confident about my translation either but it'd become something like 'He seemed to have a lot of emotion and heart. If you are not like this you can't become a sekitori anyway" what do you think ?

    New YDC yokoshin top and members

    Went to a conference called Tokugawa Ieyasu and Japan 1.0 yesterday and it was given by professor Yamauchi Masayuki who's mentioned in a post just above. I had no idea he was a YDC member until he mentioned it at the end of the conference. He even gave a copy of the Nagoya banzuke to the people who attended the conference which was such an amazing surprise. I was so happy aha. They are not all grumpy old men after all !
