Video Of Wakaichiro’s Kachi-Koshi

American sumotori closed out his Natsu matches overnight in Tokyo, scoring his 4th win by deploying a henka against veteran rikishi Gagyusan. As most readers know, I am no fan of the henka, but as many will point out, there are times to use it.

The deployment of a henka strategy, and done I might add correctly, is yet another tic mark that shows Wakaichiro’s maturation as a rikishi. The improvement of both his offense and defensive sumo since Osaka has been distinctly noticeable and impressive. It will come as no surprise to readers that the Tachiai crew will continue to closely follow the progress of this impressive young American.

  1. I’m not a fan of the henka style moves but on the other hand, Gagyusan should have at least had this in mind, seeing as how much experience he has.

    So I’ll agree that in this case, it’s actually another notch for Wakaichiro in learning all the tricks, dirty or otherwise.

    Probably give a lot of credit to his trainer to clue Wakaichiro in on this move?
