March Tournament 2015: 7


Terunofuji is Ter-ring it up. 7-0 against some impressive competition. Today’s bout against Tochinoshin was excellent sumo. Both wrestlers quickly got solid, two-handed belt grips. Against Ichinojo, Tochinoshin is usually able to power through and win these bouts. But Terunofuji was no pushover. The sekiwake was able to gradually move Tochinoshin backwards and over the straw bales.

Tied with Terunofuji are Hakuho and Aminishiki. Aminishiki’s amazing start is especially impressive in the way that he’s been able to win with a different technique each match. It’s been several tournaments since the “technique prize” was awarded so it will be great to see him get it.
