    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    As far as I know, this definition actually applies to mushōbu. Azukari would apply in today's bout, as it would have been a match that was too close to decide after monoii.

    Rules For Shikona

    Tomena are the names that are not reused, not the shikona of yokozuna, although the former is mostly a subset of the latter.

    Preparations of the masses- Hatsu 2021

    Looks to me that 起死 and 回生 are written by two different people. I'd give 回生 a 10; it might have been written by Kandayu.

    According to Shibatayama, basho goes on as planned. With audience and no postponement.

    Ex-rikishi YT sumo channels

    Takatoriki claimed that Ishiura Tokiyoshi (father of the rikishi Ishiura, principal and sumo coach at Tottori Johoku High School) quoted him 100 million yen to recruit Yamaguchi (later Daikiho) out of high school. He also implied that Chairman Tanaka of Nihon University (Nichidai) worked his way up from sumo coach through similar schemes, and specifically Yamaguchi joining Miyagino after attending Nichidai (and Tottori Johoku) involved large sums of money changing hands.

    I would say it’s “leave an opening (for your opponent)”

    Kakuryu Citizenship

    Looking at yokozuna who retired after 1990 (the first of which is Chiyonofuji), only Hokutoumi and Akebono did not retire during the basho, in addition to Asashoryu and Harumafuji, both of whom retired due to circumstances outside the ring.

    Kimarite Statistics - November 2020

    Zubuneri (head pivot throw, originally zubineri) is so named because the wrestler uses his own head (zu) as the pivot to twist (hineru) his opponent down. The wrestler places his head against his opponent's chest, and pulls on his opponent's arm.

    Minimum Kachi-Koshi forever

    The five most recent triple 7-0s from jonokuchi placed the rikishi between Ms13 and Ms15. One more 7-0 would be shin-juryo at the bottom of the division. From the bottom of juryo a zensho would be bottom of makuuchi (although this apparently never happened yet). One more would be high-maegashira/sanyaku, then Ozeki in 2 bashos, and Yokozuna in 2 more zenshos. In total that would be 11 bashos from jonokuchi to yokozuna. The biggest problem here is of course that there are far less zensho rikishi than there are barely-kachikoshi. The lack of samples leads to uncertainties, mainly whether three 15-0s in a row from the bottom of makuuchi would earn an ozeki promotion (they probably should) and whether one more zensho from there would earn a yokozuna promotion. If the answer is yes to both then the total would only be 9 bashos. Basho Slow estimate Fast Estimate 1 Jk 2 Jn 3 Sd 4 Ms15 5 J14 6 M16 7 M1 M1 8 S S 9 S O 10 O Y 11 O 12 Y
