I would love, John, if possible, in articles like this to have any first-person quotes and writing based on some discussions or talks with the related people, not just summary of what is already known dressed like an op-ed. I guess you are quite busy but this is what I felt after reading the column on Naya.

Instead of rejecting the lack of parity between wrestlers with different advantages and disadvantages, sumo embraces them, enabling opponents to push the boundaries of technique and strategy.

The writer seems to say that Kotoinazuma was a Yokozuna, citing him as an example of a grand champion’s scrappiness. He made it to Komusubi for one basho and got a makekoshi.
