Ryafuji, maybe you've had it for ages, but I love the avatar pic. Wakanosato right? Is this Kaio behind him? Love the bustin' a move pose.

Not an article as such, but Musashikuni and Musashimaru interviewed by the BBC:

I was just about to link to the same thing. I heard the an audio version on BBC News Hour yesterday that was edited down and lots of commentary from some journalist. Couldn't find that on the site though.

Indeed -- when, not if, Hakuho will set a new yusho record. Knocking on wood though, since I'd hate injury to cheat him of that!

ozumou.com has at least one piece of very outdated information despite it being labeled as posted this May: they still say MsTD start out at the bottom of the division.

Rare peek at the sumo school- very cool.

Sports medicine course.

Part 1: If your knee hurts, wrap a bandage round it and carry on.

Part 2: If your knee really really hurts and you almost can't stand up, wrap the bandage much tighter and carry on.

With a little help from my friends, I finally got the pix -- but there's nothing new except that the kids are bare-chested, which makes them look younger and therefore 'cuter' I suppose. In the past I've been to the Kyoshujo with two large press tours and escorting a number of individuals including one man who was good enough to be allowed in to join in the early morning exercises -- (though it took a lot of persuading). One of my favorite memories is of Mainoumi walking to the Kokugikan for the lesson part, having already trained at Dewanoumi. Uni men of course are way above the basics so they train in their home stables but still have to attend the lessons (did you notice Endo in the calligraphy lesson?). I have been keeping track of the lessons, and the only real change came a few years ago when the teacher of shigin, Chinese recitation, retired and was replaced by former makushita Kuninishiki who teaches sumo songs, jinku, to lots of private clubs (and also performs with friends in one of the restaurants at Ryogoku station). The only value of the shigin was breath control, so it makes excellent sense to switch to sumo jinku which are an important part of sumo tradition and youngsters can often earn themselves a tip at a party if they can perform.
