    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    I know many do, though they're not often seen putting them on or taking them off. I remember once Hakuho was going into an interview after clinching a Yusho and he took his out and handed it to a tsukebito right before entering the interview room. Ah the days before covid...

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    I am curious if seeing Takakeisho, Shodai, and Hakuho taking part in joint-keiko will motivate Asanoyama to make an appearance as well. Just training with Asabenkei and Asagyokusei isn't going to give him the same kind of intensity he would get if he was at the kokugikan.

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

    This really puts things in perspective for newer fans who didn't experience the mediocre Shodai of the last few years. Being a Shodai fan through that time was full of ups and downs and lots of frustration, but I am so happy that he has finally gotten it all together and risen to his full potential. So well deserved. Congratulations Ozeki!

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    Ah, thank you! I was aware of his brother's actions, I'm disappointed Takagenji was involved in some of the hazing as well.

    I wasn't aware Takagenji had a dark past.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Ichinojo was in good form today against Kaisei. It's nice to see him doing forward sumo. I was worried about Tobizaru, I didn't like how his knee got caught under him when he went down, but he seemed to be okay afterwards. Despite his loss today, I have been very impressed with Takanosho. With three wins over San'yaku opponents so far, a kachi koshi could also net him his second sansho. Finally, Shodai again demonstrates the incredible power that left Yutakayama in awe prior to the September Basho.
