It is the 4th time Takekaze is doing this now yearly event, after the city had hosted a training camp for Oguruma-beya. Today at a primary school, he told that his present goal is to continue his active career till the Tokyo Olympics. "My desire to reach my goal by all means, is unbelievably stronger than that of ordinary people, I think."

Nakagawa-beya starts the training camp on the 8th in the former school lunch center of Kasamatsu town, Gifu. An old friend (for 35 years) of the oyakata rents it from the town and had a dohyo made. Next month a sumo club will start there, with the dream to raise a sekitori from the town.

On the 6th, Kyokusoten and Haruhikari from the heya met with this Mr. Aoki there

The heya members (14 are at the training camp) in a Miyako-soba shop - the other local paper mentions that Tokitsukaze-beya has only 2 sekitori now.  http://www.miyakomainichi.com/2018/06/109906/

Isegahama-beya has started the traditional training camp in Sakai on the 11th, and today the sekitori joined - except Terunofuji, who is still sekitori till the banzuke gets published, but too sick  - and Aminishiki already was there from the start: much keiko, but no bouts: giving advice, lending his chest and the basics. He'll be aiming to improve his own record of oldest makuuchi return. http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2018/06/12/kiji/20180612s00005000212000c.html

Takasago-beya had their traditional June training camp at the Daiho-Hachimangu shrine in Shimotsuma city on the 10th and 11th. It started in 2001, after the oyakata was there for the setsubun festivities. 17 rikishi took part this time, with Asanoyama in the focus. Keiko with kids took place in the end, with the hope to get a kid from the city into the heya some day. http://ibarakinews.jp/news/newsdetail.php?f_jun=15289742806003

Mitakeumi's hometown Agematsu wants Dewanoumi-beya to hold a training camp there before the Nagoya-basho from next year on. For 7-10 days, using the local sumo ground, with open training and opportunities for local kids to meet and play train with Mitakeumi. Dewanoumi-oyakata appreciates the idea, Mitakeumi likes the opportunity to eventually help to raise Mitakeumi II. To plan how to use the local infrastructure for accommodation and food etc., the Mitakeumi koenkai and others will consult with the organizers of the August training camp of the heya in Chiba pref. http://www.shinmai.co.jp/news/nagano/20180724/KT180723FTI090020000.php

The oyakata has canceled the traditional Kokonoe summer training camp in Chiyonofuji's hometown Fukushima, Hokkaido. It took place each year since 1997 and was planned to start on the 7th. Because of the jungyo, only a few rikishi would be able to take part (sekitori have to be at the jungyo and they usually take their tsukebito), but there also has been a letter to the heya that threatened to injure the rikishi who would take part.

I live ten minutes from here, but due to work and other conflicts won't be able to attend for the first time in three years:'-(.

Was really looking forward to seeing "coach" Harumafuji in action, but with him retired, Terunofuji's career in jeopardy, and Aminishiki on his last legs, it's been a tough year for the Isegahama stable to say the least.
