I saw it.   A ~5 minute video from Japan of young girls training and taking part in a sumo tournament.   The feed is from KTBS in Shreveport, Louisiana, so maybe available only in the US?

I got a message -- "This video is no longer available".  (I live in Texas).

The video is pretty much female competitors doing basic exercises, for those who can't see it.

The coach in the preview shot and at 2:23 is former middle school yokozuna + high school yokozuna + amateur yokozuna + world champion Kato Koichi, who is most notable for ending the long winning streak a middle school Takanohana had put together. He's one of the best amateurs to never go pro, and even as a few years ago, in what must've been his late 40s, he was winning matches in the Kokutai as a rep for Shizuoka.

He also competed in a few US tournaments and went undefeated. Best part of those was this picture getting snapped of him:

I guess I waited too long.  Still same message ("no longer available").  I suppose it could be possible that it's my old out-of-date browser on my very old laptop that's caused the viewing problem.

I use google chrome as my browser and I just checked again. I can still watch the video. (Idunno...)

It seems that a vpn server in the USA gives access while a vpn from other countries won't.
