2019 Natsu - Kimarite Statistics

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all, below are the kimarite statistics for the first basho of the Reiwa era. Oshidashi was the most common kimarite here, accounting for 27.49% of torikumi, surpassing its previous best of 27.37% from 2018 Aki. Together, oshidashi and yorikiri accounted for 53.68% of torikumi, again surpassing the previous best combined mark from 2018 Aki.

In one of those strange coincidences, yoritaoshi and oshitaoshi both registered their second-lowest percentages in the current kimarite era, accounting for only 4.25% and 2.62% of torikumi respectively. (Yoritaoshi's low was 4.14% in 2015 Nagoya, oshitaoshi was 2.58% in 2008 Haru)

Among the rare kimarite this basho was an excellent izori from Kaishu, whose impressive agility sees him add that to the two tasukizori wins he had under his mawashi already.

In the top division, Terutsuyoshi got a couple of kake-te wins which are well worth a look. On Day 7 he brought down Enho with a well-timed susoharai footsweep. Two days later, the much larger Chiyomaru was on the receiving end of an okurigake leg trip. It's the first time okurigake has been seen at sekitori level, and only the 4th time overall since it was introduced to the kimarite list in 2001.

Chiyomaru was also the fall guy to one of the two ashitori wins from Makuuchi debutant Enho. I thought it might be called as komatasukui considering the way it was applied, when compared to Enho's earlier ashitori against Sadanoumi, but perhaps the key is that Chiyomaru was pushed out of the dohyo like Sadanoumi, rather than falling down.

Back in the lower divisions, after an initial leg trip attempt went nowhere, Matsuda switched to one of his favourite moves, picking up the 7th nichonage win of his career as a result. Meanwhile, Tamakongo was driven back to the tawara but saved the day with a last-ditch nimaigeri, with a mono-ii confirming his victory. It's a rare departure from his otherwise orthodox kimarite history. Finally, Ayanoumi struggled at his highest career rank this basho, but he did get the 5th uchimuso win of his career.

Good to see Tobizaru reach double-digit wins for the first time in his career, which should earn him a promotion out of the double-digit Juryo ranks for the first time too. Among his wins was the 5th kekaeshi of his career, against the same opponent that he beat with a ketaguri on the same day last basho. Among active rikishi I believe only Kizenryu - another Nichidai graduate - has more kekaeshi wins, with 6.

Speaking of Kizenryu, he almost provided a second nichonage for the basho on Day 11, but apparently the attempted trip wasn't quite enough for the duty kimarite-gakari, so the bout was recorded as a kotenage instead.

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

Thank you for this kimarite post, always very interesting. But I guess here you meant from the beginning of Heisei, unless you considered another type of era...

And I wonder... Since those low yoritaoshi/oshitaoshi rates are linked with a yokiriki/oshidashi high, what could that mean bout-wise... a "cleaner" sumo?

Hmm thinking about it, it might be the kimarite era, from the last reformation, so 2001 or so. Am I right?

Absolutely right. Sorry about that, I think I usually write "current kimarite era". I don't know why I missed it this time, especially with the potential confusion of mentioning the new Imperial era in my opening line. Thanks for the catch, I'll correct it now.

Perhaps, at least for yoritaoshi, there was slightly less desperate resisting at the edge?
