Kimarite Statistics - November 2020

Recommended Posts

Better late than never I hope - here at last are the kimarite statistics for all divisions in the final basho of the year. A yusho race that went down to the wire plus some rare kimarite at sekitori level made for an entertaining third consecutive basho at the home of ozumo. Takakeisho triumphed in the top flight to set up what should be a tough tsunatori basho in the new year

From a kimarite perspective, my personal highlight of the basho was Terutsuyoshi's sotokomata win against Enho. It was the first sotokomata in any division for just over five years, and the first at sekitori level since the 2005 Hatsu basho. Actually it could have been something even more scarce - earlier in the bout, Terutsuyoshi appeared to attempt a sotomuso (see screenshot below), which has been unused at any level for over 18 years.

Popular Juryo returnee Ura was already in the headlines, but he added to that on Day 5 with an izori win against Kyokushuho. It was the first izori at sekitori level since that of Tomonohana in the 1993 Hatsu basho - he is now Tamagaki-oyakata and happened to be on shimpan duty for Ura's bout here.

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

12,246 honwari torikumi took place in the five basho held this year, with 67 kimarite used (excluding fusen and hansoku). Oshidashi was the most common for only the second calendar year in the current kimarite era, following 2018. However, the difference between oshidashi (3110, 25.40%) and yorikiri (3088, 25.22%) was only 22, the fifth consecutive year that the gap has remained in double digits.

Among the unused kimarite, the only real surprise was the lack of tsuriotoshi - in the last 29 years, only 2016 had previously seen it draw a blank. Tsutaezori is by no means commonplace, but it did make at least one appearance in each of the last four years. Marked with an asterisk are those kimarite that appeared last year but not this.

Seems to me that if there weren't as many talented "small wrestlers" making inroads in the upper divisions, us fans wouldn't be treated to as many of the rare kimarite as we seem to be seeing at the moment... ;-)

Maybe I misunderstood, but 3/4 of the the returning kimarite except sotokomata are not counted in the table?

The table shows the stats for this basho, the text after is about the year overall - sotokomata appeared this basho, the other three in earlier basho of the year. Sorry for any confusion, I could probably write those things a bit clearer.

This particular basho was for sure an interesting collection of cool and rare kimarite, at least in the sekitori ranks. I loved the ushiromotare from Ura against...Azumaryuu? And I'm still trying to figure out what's exactly a zubuneri, I've seen the video several times, but still don't get it :/.

Thank you for your usual post, @Yubinhaad, I always enjoy it a lot

There's a pretty clear video of zubuneri on the NHK Sumopedia page.  Look for the "#3 Techniques" video at the 1:20 mark.

Ah, I see! Sorry for that, I was already in bed with half eyes open when browsing the forum  (Laughing...)

Zubuneri (head pivot throw, originally zubineri) is so named because the wrestler uses his own head (zu) as the pivot to twist (hineru) his opponent down. The wrestler places his head against his opponent's chest, and pulls on his opponent's arm.

most of the super-rare kimarite happened in Juryo this time but I put together some exciting techniques from the lower divisions before I trash all of my footage from Kyushu. enjoy!

Noticed 2 things:

Fujinoteru did what Terunofuji does: tsuridashi!

And there is this guy called Umizaru -- sea monkey !? :-D

I thought it was funny that Fujinoteru picked up Hanakaze and then got picked up in his next bout
