Classification of Kimarite in Sumo Information Posted January 7, 2021 Dear Friends, I have been following sumo for a few years and now pursuing some research on the sport. I had a few questions that I hope I can get some answers to. 1) Is there any meaningful classification of kimarite in terms of the risks involved. For instance is it right to say that a yorikiri is riskier than a mawashi technique? 2) Does the wrestlers rank have any bearing on the type of technique being used? Would be very grateful for any responses. Regards, Prof. Anand Vijayasankaran, Indian School of Business.
