Winter jungyo 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

On Dec. 10th a jungyo is in Isahaya, Nagasaki - the last there was in 1992. Pref. local Tokitsukaze (Tokitsuumi) was at the city hall for PR (jungyo man Edagawa was with him). At the time of the last jungyo there, he was still a member of the sumo club of the prefectural Isahaya agricultural high school. High school sempai Sakaigawa (Ryogoku in his last days) gave him a training lesson then.  http://this.kiji.is/512452456734475361?c=174761113988793844

For the 6th year in a row and the 10th time,  a MochiKichi (a big kensho sponsor) jungyo basho takes place in Nogata city, Fukuoka, on Dec. 1st. Jungyo man Shikihide and PR man Takasaki were at the city hall yesterday. http://www.nishinippon.co.jp/item/n/519422/

This year again has a 2 day Okinawa basho, for the 5th year in a row. This year on Dec. 14th and 15th in Kizakiumi's hometown Uruma city. He accompanied Sendagawa there for PR.

brother Churanoumi was also with them yesterday - in December they want to be there as sekitori brothers (Kizakiumi needs a kachikoshi in Aki for that, Churanoumi 6-1) http://www.okinawatimes.co.jp/articles/-/450961

Enho is getting overconfident -  he had done no keiko at the jungyo for many months after he injured himself there, but now he's doing it again: 4 bouts with his nemesis Shohozan - even Hakuho got concerned about the well-being of his tachi-mochi

関取衆と申し合いを行う阿炎(撮影・佐藤礼征)

 

As Akinomaki reported just above, the jungyo was in Ukiha, Fukuoka today and as we can see in one of the pictures Abi is training hard. 

He declared that his goals for next year are a yusho and the ozeki rank. He said he worked really hard to gain weight this year (he is currently over 150 kg- he's listed at 152 on the official website ). " I ate as much as I could. I think I'm about 10 kilos heavier compared to last year" he explained. "My weight is good as it is, now I have to improve my technique. Getting my KK in Kyushu gave me confidence, for next year I want to produce good sumo even when I lose" he added.

Tochinoshin is safe  back in the heya - he did the basics for 90min. and prepares for the Hatsu basho. He's in good mood - and it doesn't look like he's going to quit soon

Day 6 - the Aso Oguni basho, back to Kumamoto - the papers really lost interest: nothing at all yesterday, and the NSK busy with basho sales. At last a local TV video: https://www.tku.co.jp/news/大相撲 阿蘇小国場所 にぎわう/

I saw on Twitter the NSK cancelled  Hakuho’s dohyo-iri at Shurijo in Okinawa. Said the symbolism is wrong. I suppose the Okinawans just don’t want a crowd there yet? Or is the ground hardening symbolism just that serious?

I guess the NSK just wanted to refuse Hakuho something - they want to plan things themselves
