    Thanks for the edit @Jakusotsu that's a lot easier to read!

    Kimarite Statistics - 2022 Kyushu

    Only one basho since 2000 had fewer fusen than this one (Kyushu 2016 with 3). http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query_bout.aspx?show_form=0&amp;group_by=basho&amp;g_op=<=&amp;having=6&amp;year=>1999&amp;rowcount=5&amp;kimarite=74&amp;onlyw1=on (Number of bouts in this query are all doubled, I guess there's a way to correct for this but I don't know how)

    I've just been looking him up, what an extraordinary career! And still had trouble starting his own stable it seems.

    Thanks, I had thought it was only Ozeki or Yokozuna but I had forgotten about Takekaze. So Aminishiki (and Takekaze) would qualify by means of 97 (and 86) makuuchi tournaments. It must be pretty rare to make 25 san'yaku tournaments without meeting one of the other two criteria (Tochiozan had 25 san'yaku tournaments but had more than 60 makuuchi anyway).

    Can any Oyakata open a new stable in principle? Or do they have to have reached san'yaku?

    Yes, it's strange to think of sumo as technologically advanced of other sports by several decades!

    Sounds just like a gyoji

    And presumably being on the receiving end of a henka is normally less likely to lead to injury. I remember in May 2019 when Takakeisho had his ill-advised single day mid-basho re-entry, some were praising Aoiyama for kindly doing a henka to protect the Ozeki from himself.

    I've just watched the March playoff and I'd totally forgotten that Takayasu was henka'd in that one too (HNH'd maybe, I couldn't tell...). But because Wakatakakage didn't win immediately and the ensuing bout was so exciting the henka clearly didn't stick in my memory. As for concussion vs. mental collapse, Takayasu crumples as soon as his head makes contact with Abi. That must surely be a physical response, maybe a bit like when Takakeisho just 'stopped' v Ichinojo a while back.

    I thought this was just something us fans bothered about, I didn't know there was an actual trophy (even if it must feel a bit like a consolation prize).
  12. There have been very few 0-15 records. The most recent is Itai in July 1991 who went from M14 to J9. So if that's anything to go by Terutsuyoshi should be fine. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&amp;form1_losses=15&amp;form1_m=on Oki and Fujiazuma have recently gone 0-15 in juryo (in successive bashos, in fact), so I was surprised to find how rare a 'feat' this is overall. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&amp;form1_losses=15&amp;form1_j=on

    Unless they treat an 11-9-12 non-yusho the same way as Goeido's 12-8-12.

    Nine wins would make his Ozeki bid much more feasible next time, no?

    He's great to watch, hopefully he'll get a special prize
