2018 Kyushu - Kimarite Statistics

Recommended Posts

Hello all, here are the kimarite statistics for the final basho of 2018, which saw a rare Komusubi yusho as Takakeisho proved to be the strongest of the depleted upper ranks. No Makuuchi rikishi managed to record a kachi-koshi in all six basho of the year for the first time since 2003. But a round of applause for Daishoho who managed to do it in the Juryo ranks - he's the first to do that in the same year since Katsunishiki in 1975. The last to chalk up six in a row in Juryo was Asahisato in 1993/4.

Moving on to the techniques, kekaeshi was more popular than usual this basho, with four appearances in total. Tobizaru collected two of the wins in Juryo, the first time that's been done in the Heisei era (Tochitsurugi was the last to do it, in 1987 Kyushu). In fact I think there should have been five kekaeshi, but whoever was on duty as kimarite-gakari decided that Ezuka's successful second attempt against Kiryu was a ketaguri instead.

Having fallen to the first make-koshi of his short career, Tanahashi bounced back on the final day, weathering the initial attack of freshly-renamed Dainichido and toppling him with an excellent chongake.

Of the three uchigake here, the third was the most interesting, as Enho applied a leg grab right at the end which might have turned it into a mitokorozeme. But I think it really came too late to have any meaningful impact on the outcome so it stays as an uchigake, which is fair enough.

Day 6 brought two komatasukui wins in Jonidan and Sandanme - although frankly I thought the first one would be a koshikudake, I can't see any leg grab at all.

There were two okurihikiotoshi in this basho, both produced by Sakaigawa-beya rikishi. Sadanoumi's hikkake (or tottari) attempt wasn't quite enough to beat Daieisho, but it did give him the winning position to pull him down from behind. In the second bout, Sadanohana kept tricky Amanoshima at arms length and coped admirably with his twisting and turning in an entertaining finish.

Kimarite from kettei-sen bouts are not included in the statistics.

Oshidashi was the most common kimarite in 2018, accounting for 25.77% of the 14,803 torikumi this year. This is the 27th year for which complete all-division kimarite data is available, and the first time that oshidashi has topped the charts. Also notable is the number of fusen bouts this year, 102. While it's worth noting that at least three had nothing to do with injury (Takayoshitoshi, Hikarugenji, Shingaku...), it's still the first time fusen has reached three figures since 1993.

Overall, 69 kimarite were used this year (not counting fusen and hansoku), one less than in 2017. Among the comebacks were rarities gasshohineri and tsukaminage, both having been unused for a decade. Chongake and kozumatori also returned after a couple of years out of use. The unused kimarite were:

Kakezori
Koshinage
Mitokorozeme
Okuritsuridashi
Okuritsuriotoshi
Omata
Osakate
Sabaori
Shumokuzori
Sotokomata
Sotomuso
Sototasukizori
Susotori
Tsumatori
Ushiromotare
Waridashi
Yaguranage
Yobimodoshi

Ushiromotare usually gets at least one accidental/comical appearance, this year drawing a blank for only the third time since it was introduced in 2001.

Thanks to Doitsuyama for the database, to Miselet for the videos, and to you for reading! (Bye,bye...)

A list of the top ten kimarite in all divisions might be of interest:

1) Yorikiri, 2) Oshidashi, 3) Hatakikomi, 4) Uwatenage, 5) Yoritaoshi, 6) Tsukiotoshi, 7) Okuridashi, 8) Hikiotoshi, 9) Oshitaoshi, 10) Sukuinage 

Compare that with the top ten kimarite for the Top Division:

1) Oshidashi, 2) Yorikiri, 3) Hatakikomi,  4) Tsukiotoshi, 5) Uwatenage, 6) Yoritaoshi, 7) Sukuinage, 8) Kotenage, 9) Oshitaoshi & Hikiotoshi

What stands out is the greater frequency of Kotenage, a dangerous (i.e., potentially injury-causing) technique.

Also of interest is that there were more fusen bouts in the Top Division than in any of the other lower divisions, which in several cases have more positions (i.e., ranks).  This would suggest that Makuuchi wrestlers are more prone to injury or have more persistent injury issues from years in the ring.  

Of course, these kimarite stats change every tournament, and we are extremely fortunate to have Yubinhaad carefully collate them each tournament.

Also, Yokozuna can go kyujo with few consequences (unless you overdo it *cough* Kisenosato *cough*), and Ozeki can go kyujo at the cost of just being kadoban the next time around, or if they're already kachikoshi and aren't in the middle of a tsuna run (*cough* Goeido *cough*). That's not true in the other divisions.

On top of that, only Makuuchi and Juryo appear on all 15 days, which gives most of the other divisions the chance to take a break and possibly recover when they might have gone kyujo, and Makuuchi is a lot bigger than Juryo is.
