Kimarite Statistics - 2020 Haru

Recommended Posts

Hello all, here are the kimarite statistics for all divisions in this most unusual basho, which ended with a not-so-unusual Makuuchi yusho winner as Yokozuna Hakuho took his 44th title. Full marks to the Kyokai for managing to hold the basho at all.

Nankairiki might have lost out on the Sandanme yusho to his junior stablemate Ura, but as a consolation prize he did chalk up the 17th uchimuso win of his career. No video of that one, unfortunately, but it does draw him level with Futagodake for most uchimuso (in the available records, of course).

Matsuda reached double figures on Day 3 when he recorded the 10th nichonage win of his career, leaving him just one short of Mori's record.

Sawada picked up an izori win on the middle Sunday, toppling Hokutosato after being pushed back to the edge of the dohyo.

Kizenryu is well known as an uwatenage specialist, collecting a whopping 141 wins with an overarm throw so far. By contrast he rarely wins with an inside grip - this basho he got only the 9th shitatenage win of his career (and the first in nearly six years) with a lovely throw at the edge, turning Ryusei's forward drive against him.

Another rikishi moving into double figures in this basho was Urutora, who was in good form for a 5-2 kachi-koshi. Three of those wins came with an ashitori leg grab, taking his career total to 10.

Roll your eyes as I recycle the same joke I made a year ago - Osaka gives osakate its maiden appearance of the year.

While some rare kimarite appeared in this basho, two others drew a rare blank in Osaka. The basho average for kainahineri has declined from 6 to 4 during the last decade, and this was the 8th basho it hasn't been used in the last six years. Also, it was only the 3rd basho in which kakenage has gone unused.

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

Thanks for all of these stats! I should be done with my kimarite video in the next 24 hours.

Did you see the fumidashi in Juryo, Hakuyozan and Tobizaru? I'm not really sure why it was called that way, I didn't see Hakuyozan step out backwards anywhere in the replays.

At the end of the bout Hakuyozan overbalances and steps out while Tobizaru is some distance away. I suppose it could have been called tsukiotoshi, it seems like that was the push that ultimately led to Hakuyozan losing his balance, but given the separation between the rikishi I can see why they chose fumidashi instead.

I was just confused about the "backwards" part of fumidashi. I was expecting Hakuyozan to be facing the inside of the ring and step backwards out of the ring, but I guess "backwards" in this context just means out of the ring

Fumidashi is really just a catch-all term for step-outs not caused by over-aggression (otherwise it would be isamiashi). Nothing suggests that it has to be backwards, apart from the English translation.

After a long absence the Kyokai has finally brought a kimarite list back to their website, albeit only on the Japanese side. Instead of the illustrations they had before, they're using a set of pictures taken in December 2000 to mark the last expansion - former Maegashira Oginohana and former Juryo Dairyu are demonstrating each kimarite.

Each individual kimarite page shows the number of times it has been used in all divisions during the last five years, while at the bottom of the main page is a table showing the top ten most common kimarite for the same period. At a glance it looks like the Kyokai's totals include kimarite from kettei-sen bouts.

I don't think I've seen an izori quite like theirs...

Looks like something from the kama sutra.

Anyway, this is awesome. They’ve had these cartoon duck versions of the kimarite up for ages in Japanese but I never liked them. These are much better. The photos are the same as those used in the rikishi guide they publish each year, although the izori is not that one!
