2020 Hatsu Basho Scorecards

2020 Hatsu

Last year we saw the first Honbasho of a new Imperial era, and now we are a few days away from the first Honbasho of a new decade. What hasn’t changed, however, is my commitment to bringing you scorecards for each and every tournament. Here’s hoping we ring in the new year with another amazing Hatsu Basho!

2019 Aki Basho Scorecards

2019 Aki Basho

As a teacher, September is always a busy time so boy was I surprised to realize that the Aki Basho starts in just a few days! Never fear, I got my act together and the 2019 Aki Basho Scorecards are ready to go! As many will notice, these scorecards still list Rikishi like Takayasu who have already announced that they will not compete. They are included here as it is my hope that these cards will also act as a form of banzuke for those who enjoy record keeping for every Basho.

2019 Nagoya Basho Scorecards

Nagoya 2019

With just a few days to go until the Nagoya Basho starts, here are the scorecards for the Makuuchi and Juryo divisions.

For those wondering why rikishi who have gone kyujo before the scorecards go out, there is a reason. I goal is that these documents are not just scorecards, but also a form of a banzuke for those who like to keep their own records of the changes in sumo from basho to basho. I also keep a rikishi’s name on just in case they were to join part way through a basho.  For these reasons. every scorecard will have a spot for each rikishi ranked on the official banzuke, and only in the most special of circumstances (ex: Takanoiwa) will their bracket be changed.

Here’s hoping that you keeping score at home and that we get another exciting Basho!
