    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Shodai with that head nod today - that boy was really feeling himself! Looking forward to his match with Takakeisho.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Asanoyama vs Shodai is an interesting match for tomorrow. Anyone think that Shodai will win this one? Asanoyama lost his University coach today so I wonder how that will play into the match.... Sumo is filled with so many side stories - it really keeps things interesting.

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2020

    Also hoping for an Ichinojo Juryo Basho. I hope he is healthy now. Any update on that?

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2020

    I really want to see Enho v Tochinoshin. Either Enho gets ahold on the front of Tochi's belt and pulls or Tochi grabs Enho and throws him out of the ring like King Kong. Either way, I'd be entertained

    Agreed! Chiyomaru deserved that win through and through. It's just not consistent though. In that Ura match yesterday Ura was clearly in the drivers seat but got overturned because the back of his hand hit the ground a split second before his opponent.

    Chiyomaru got lucky today. His his left foot stepped out before Sadanoumi landed out. Was I the only one to see that?

    As a someone who has only been watching sumo for a year and a half at this point, I felt the same exact way. It was an exciting match that had me on the edge of my seat. I loved the strategy that Yutakayama used and it made me appreciate both rikishi even more after the bout!

    Asanoyama is quickly becoming my favorite rikishi now that my favorite is out again... how far will Tochi drop since he's out? What do yall think about a possible retirement from him?

    All valid points. Thank you. At the very least I think some type of energy absorbent flooring could be put in place around the dohyo. As an engineer, it pains me to see a problem that could be solved (or at least improved) with a little bit of ingenuity. It's a simple problem of the impulse-momentum change theorem - the greater the time over which the collision occurs, the smaller the force acting upon the object. Thus, to minimize the effect of the force on an object involved in a collision, the time of the collision must be increased. Even little increases in the time of collision reduce the force of the impact considerably. I think what is really frustrating is that there doesn't seem to be any concern to even have the conversation.

    Day 4 Thoughts 1. YAAAAAAAASSS Tochinoshin! 2. When was the last time Aoiyama won while moving forward? I'm so sick and tired of seeing these rikishi fall for his hatakikomi. You know that's all he's gonna try, how are you falling this?! 3. Hakuho looked REALLY tired after that great match with Okinoumi. I mean, he looked worn. I wonder if he makes it all 15 days (I hope!) 4. What would it take for the association to lower the dohyo or cushion the area outside of it? I know, I know, tradition... but it's not like they never changed aspects about the layout of the dohyo for non-spiritual reasons; They took away the pillars of the tsuriyane so that spectators could see more easily... Sumo is a ceremonial sport packed with ritual and meaning but I think it would be naive to view it not as a business too....

    Learn Japanese

    This Real Kana is pretty cool too. It's like flash cards so I'll start by using that with Duolingo and keep going from there.
