Rikishi or heya support events

Recommended Posts

Local supporters send Asanoyama a "certain victory" calabash, with shikona, his school motto "Love and Righteousness" (on his kesho mawashi and in his ozeki promotion phrase), cartoon portrait, "The pride of Toyama", and on the back 300 fans wrote their support messages.

Onami's father is not a son of former Wakabayama but his mother is Wakabayama's daughter.

Incidentally his father、Masashi Onami, was former Makushita 51 Wakashinobu and now operates Chanko Wakabayama in Fukushima City, where the new recruit is from.

3 brothers at the same time in a heya, of a 3 generations ozumo rikishi family.

Who will be the first in juryo? - and who will get the shikona of grandad Wakabayama, who was trained in the Futabayama-dojo and then Tokitsukaze-beya. Father Wakashinobu was in Tatsutagawa-beya.

All 3 brothers come from the GakuFuku-high sumo club in Fukushima.

Onami III starts at first as Wakatakakage (looks better in kanji: 若隆景) - the Waka from grandpa's Wakabayama, the rest from the name of the 3rd of the 3 sons of Mori Motonari (to whom he showed that 3 arrows won't break easily if bundled), Kobayakawa Takakage.  Arashio-oyakata gave him the shikona. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20170304/sum17030419180009-n1.html

The other 2 of course also adjusted their names to that of the Mori brothers, Kikkawa Motoharu and Mōri Takamoto

The Waka-TKK/-MTH/-TKM Onami trio gets a local koenkai, the Onami 3 brothers Fukushima koenkai, mainly formed by OBs from GakuFuku high and local companies. The inaugural meeting is on Dec. 14th in Fukushima-city. With the makuuchi promotion of Wakatakakage last year, as the first makuuchi coming from the school's sumo club, the plan for the koenkai was born. The 3 aim to become the first 3 brothers to be sekitori at the same time, what the 3 Izutsu sekitori brothers hadn't accomplished. Wakamotoharu had a kachikoshi in mid juryo, the eldest Wakatakamoto one in mid makushita, with still a long way to go, but likely he'll make it before the Nayas come close to form a sekitori trio.

I don't believe wakatakamoto will ever reach juryo sadly. he's been stuck in mid makushita forever with middling results. The last year has been nothing but 4-3s and 3-4s, and he's almost 30. Hozan also isn't looking so good. an mk at the bottom of sandanme is a worrying sign.

Looking at the current maku'uchi I note that Tamawashi, Kotoeko, Meisei and Akua all had mks in their sandanme debuts, although admittedly none of them were as old as Hozan at the time.

I would be shocked if he became a sekitori. On the college scene he accomplished nothing, couldn't even make his university's team, and got absolutely routed by anyone half decent. Now he's already fallen short in low sandamne--a level that should be no problem for a college grad with sekitori potential. He's got a well-developed body and has been doing sumo for years, so it's not like he's some skinny green teenager who you can more realistically expect major gains from.

The quality just isn't there, particularly for balance and stability. I don't think Wakatakamoto will reach sekitori either, but he's got a better shot than Hozan.

The first personal koenkai of Yutakayama will be established in May, core members will be Niigata sports organizations related persons and OBs from his university, Tokyo Nodai. On the 6th he had a press conference about it with the mayor of Niigata city.

Due to Corona the start of the koenkai for Yutakayama was delayed till the 21st this month.

The first meeting of the Onami koenkai was on Dec. 14th., about 40 members took part, but not the 3 brothers (though others had traveled a lot). http://www.minpo.jp/news/moredetail/2020121581832
