Thanks for providing this. He is one of the lower rankers that I used to follow after I met him a couple of times through the Ritsumeikan University sumo-bu connection that I had. I'm pleased to see that he had another 4+ years as a solid Makushita rikishi after I stopped following. He also looks to be fit and well in the video.

Mizuguchi on his Gut-channel has started a full sumo course, alone the basics, and for oshi- and yotsu-zumo demonstration he is joined by 2 other ex-Kasugayama ototo-deshi as assistants: Gottsu-kun (Goto) = Shoei and Shohei Ose. In the introduction of Shoei, his supposedly best bout is shown https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaRjTL6PlnQ

Hama Ryota, formerly know as Hokutoarashi, is a puroresu for Big Japan Pro-Wrestling, an organization that is known for their deathmatch style matches. Abdullah the Butcher was one such figure in this organization. Hama wrestled for Hakkaku stable and rose as high as makushita, but was injury prone and would find himself bouncing up and down the banzuke. The closest he got to sekitori was Kyushu 2001 where he was ranked Makushita 6. After retiring in Natsu 2008, he made his debut later that year against none other than Akebono. Afterwards he would win two tag team titles with Akebono. One of his signature moves is the "Makushita Impact"

Here is a match he had a few years ago.

Ex-Mienoumi/Musashigawa (71) also looks genki, after Kitanofuji (77) the 3rd oldest surviving yokozuna - the 4th oldest is already Asahifuji/Isegahama

OK so I'm a bit late in noticing this but isn't Wakanohana II still with us?

Yep, 67 years old and still kicking. I must say I am pleasantly surprised by this as it seems he has been in poor health for so many years now....

Former Aononami, currently known as sumo geinin "Meccha" was involved in catching a thief at a Musashi Koyama shopping arcade in Tokyo. He heard someone yelling to stop the youngster running towards him and tackled him head on. He kept the man in custody until the police took over from there. "I thought that I didn't stop him there that it would be trouble after that. He was coming at me full speed but I didn't feel scared at all. That's because during my sumo days, I had to tackle people head on so much I wouldn't want to. My waist fell back and I couldn't use my lower back, so I had a bad tachiai. I could only use my arms, and it's more important to get my step in."

Former anideshi Aminishiki (Ajigawa oyakata) on Meccha: "The fact that he did not hesitate to take the robber head on is thanks to his keiko experience. Normally it is dangerous to get involved in that type of situation, but I am glad to have had him as a fellow trainee. It's given me some courage during this July basho."

https://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/202007210001318.html

Aononami made his debut in March of 2004 and his highest rank was Jonidan 94, before hanging up his mawashi in January 2007.

Waratte-koraete https://www.ntv.co.jp/warakora/ this week had a report on the chanko restaurant Akitaya in Hasu city, Saitama, of former Katsurafuji, now Kochi Mamoru, after he married the daughter of the former owner, also a former rikishi, probably this Kochi from Akita pref. How as ex-sandanme did he have this photo with oicho in kesho mawashi taken? Maybe a one-time yumitori job at a jungyo in the Tohoku region? - the kesho mawashi is by the Tanikaze(/Kokufu)-kai, which was the promoter for the Sendai jun-basho http://blog.livedoor.jp/kammyjt/archives/52066715.html

80243666.jpg

The program shows his bout Kyushu 1988 with Takahanada after half a year in sumo - he was in his 4th year. Starting at 17min: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1S5411a7p3

Misugisato frequently was featured on programs about the 2nd life of rikishi on TBS

http://www.tbs.co.jp/birth-day/onair/20170218.html

Misugisato was today on TBS Bakuho! The Friday 爆報!_THE_フライデー. He by now has reduced his debts to single digit million yens by offering seitai therapy and chanko

That year he also was at the Chanko-1 Grand Prix

On 07/11/2018 at 13:34, Akinomaki said:

with other award (sansho etc.) winners - including the winners of former years and newly challenging ex-Misugisato

For 11 years now he runs a seitai therapy 整体 place in Tokyo, Nakano with the magnificent ®name Gottsu Hand - Misugisato http://www.misugisato.com/ (derived from the rikishi phrase "gottsan desu", the thanks after having received or devoured something).

2462247fa426ac5163ff187e159315d5_640px.j

While active he was was called "Dohyo-edge magician", and before the heya merger also "Waka-Taka killer". After intai he could stay as oyakata for 8 years and wanted to go on, but after a rule change in 2006 he couldn't meet the requirements (to open a heya) and decided to leave the NSK: "What remained was the debt of 10s of millions of yen of the money invested to have a heya." While running a chanko restaurant in Kamakura, he enrolled at a vocational school for seitai therapy, learned it also in main place China, accumulated experience to now have so called "divine" hands. And the well known name contributed much to his success.

This year with Corona, the revenue dropped by 60%, but he can't afford to take a day off. http://maidonanews.jp/article/13636398
