Kotoshogiku was on fire this tournament. At 11-4, he tied with Kisenosato, Ikioi, and Yoshikaze – just behind Kakuryu and Terunofuji. He’s still very one dimensional, though. I really wish he’d learn to do something other than jack-rabbit yorikiri/oshidashi/oshitaoshi. He comes hard out of the gate and tries to blast the opponent out. Too many sanyaku and a growing number of maegashira are ready for this, or his knees seem to be giving him issues. If he’d develop some belt throw techniques, he’d be a more formidable opponent.
