Sorry it's taken so long, but here are the kimarite statistics for the final basho of 2021, and some notes about the year as a whole. I'm afraid I don't have a lot to say about the basho itself as I didn't get much time to see the lower divisions, however I did spot Asakiryu's spectacular first week, which saw him win with ashitori, sotogake and finally a tasukizori, the only one of those we've seen this year. Alas his exploits didn't continue any further, but he's certainly one I'll keep watching.

There were 13,896 honwari torikumi this year, in which 69 kimarite were used (excluding fusen and hansoku), an increase of two from last year, albeit with one more basho taking place. The unused kimarite are mostly the usual suspects, with a couple of exceptions. Although far from common, izori drew a blank for the first time since 2016, while nimaigeri went unused for the first time since 2010.

On the plus side, susotori and waridashi were both used for the first time since 2015, while other kimarite such as okurigake, tsuriotoshi and tasukizori reappeared after being unused last year.

Oshidashi was the most common kimarite of 2021, accounting for just over 26% of bouts. This is the 30th calendar year for which we have complete kimarite records for all divisions, and the third in which oshidashi has come out on top.

Dashinage enjoyed a good year, with shitatedashinage registering its highest percentage since 2006, while uwatedashinage set a new record, being used in 217 bouts.

Tsukiotoshi set a new record percentage for the second year in a row, with 841 appearances enough to surpass the 6% mark for the first time. In contrast, the decline of shitatenage continued as it dipped below 2% for the first time.

this new layout will take a while to get used to - thanks for doing it during the "dead period" between basho!
