    Ozeki preparations July 2010

    Oh, no... Actually, I clearly remembered a impressive degeiko at Naruto-beya for the Kyushu basho 2007's preparation. Ama and Asofuji smashed Kisenosato and Wakanosato. When the Isegahama's sekitori were gone, Naruto oyakata was angry and stopped the keiko each 5 minutes to give a talking to his deshi. At 11 and half, the training went on and I was desperate to left keikoba because of an appointment.

    Absolutely, I don't remember which sumo monthly magazine is it exactly (Sumou or Ouzumou), but you could find the updated heya list into.

  12. Apparently, Kokonoe oyakata wouldn't be very popular among his pairs. And Musashigawa? Wouldn't he want to continue for couple of years?
