Tachiai Career Quiz #2: Winning Kimarite

Can you guess the wrestler whose sekitori wins are represented here in this pie chart?

Kimarite Quiz

There don’t seem to be many wrestlers who have more than half of their wins from a single kimarite. In this case, it isn’t even close. I would put the difficulty level on this as Easy.

  1. I’m colour blind! Difficulty level for me: super high!!

    Which kimarite is 412 & which is 89, please?!

  2. Currently active rikishi? Makuuchi only? Kotoshogiku seems a great guess. Eyeballing the chart at 650-700 career makuuchi wins, which seems to roughly fit his career. Tochinoshin fits by style but no way does he have that many makuuchi wins.

  3. Who put the bomp in the bomp, shi-bomp, shi-bomp?
    Who put the hug in the hugga-chugga-lug, lug?

    um… I’m with Giku.

  4. Kotoshogiku was my gut reaction, but now that some are suggesting Tochinoshin, I could believe that just as readily. Fun with data :D

  5. My guess would be Giku too at least among active/recently active rikishi. Tochinoshin has a high Yorikiri ratio too, but nowhere near enough bouts. I think Kyokutenho had a very high yorikiri ratio as well.
    When you going to solve it? ;)
