Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

Recommended Posts

I think makuuchi hasn't seen something like that since the days of Konishiki. On the one hand i WANT to see that match, on the other hand i fear for Enho's health. But more curious am i, if Enho can make it high enough on the banzuke.

You got a typo there...

It would probably take 2 1/2 Enho's to match Ichinojo's ass.

Yamakawa does his "dosukoi" after every home-run - and it seems the whole nation does it with him now, especially the kids mimic him - maybe without knowing the sumo background - top on NHK Sunday sports http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc434681/

Terunofuji 10 years ago doing judo wearing a Polo shirt... Doesn't need to wear Judogi anyway. In the next frame he probably grabbed the two guys by the belt and lifted then above his head until they cry for mercy...

This is a segment from an old Warren Miller movie.  It's quite a sight to see a Rikishi doing Shiko in ski boots on a ski slope before he gets on the lift.  And wearing a Mawashi, too!! lol

Here is a funny Youtube video entitled "Could a Sumo Wrestler be an NFL Lineman?".  The American NFL Quarterback Tom Brady tries to push back a sumo wrestler on a Dohyo in a Heya.  As expected, Brady can't make the wrestler budge.  The Youtuber goes on explain that Yokozuna Wakanohana tried to become  a football player with the American NFL and even signed a contract with the Arizona Rattlers in 2002.  But because of his previous injuries, his age (31), and his inability to laterally move well enough, it didn't work out for him.  There is a funny scene of Rikishi racing each other on a track.  At the very end, there is a photo of a young Hakuho.

Although no longer a rikishi, ex-Yokozyna Asahifuji / Isegahama Oyakata sings a song by Aimyon called "Marigold"
with a little struggle at the end.  Click onto CC English for subtitles.
Video of the program at this topic link.
