Takekaze Unleashes The Ipponzeoi


Rare Judo Style Throw Topples Kaisei

During Takekaze’s day 8 match with Kaisei, sumo fans got a rare treat of a one armed shoulder throw, or ipponzeoi (本背負い). According to NHK commentary, this throw has not been seen in the top division for 3 years. Video of the amazing kimarite courtesy of Jason’s All Sumo Channel

  1. Takekaze blew my mind with the judo-inspired throw! It was most impressive. What a great reaction from the undersize, but wily veteran! He basically posterized Kaisei!
