Video of Wakaichiro – American Sumo Disciple


Thanks to the wonders of the internet, we now have video of Ichiro Young, now known by his shikona – Wakaichiro, in his first three bouts prior to acceptance as a rikishi. For all American sumo fans, it’s going to be fun to watch this young man from Texas work his way into the world of Sumo.

Wakaichiro played football in High School, and that is quite evident from his matches. He is comfortable charging his opponents strongly, and I predict for the first few tournaments, he will do pretty well, and likely have a lot of fun.

Wakaichiro is part of the Musashigawa stable
