Re: Unbalance - Feet of Clay

Dear Niall,
Good article.Brings back memories of Sumo on the tele.Syd Hoare the judoka used do comment on Sumo on the BBC ? a long while ago.
While Akebono was a big guy, I never really thought he had any skill other than he was huge[mild understatement/My own favourite was Chihonfuji, not big by Sumo standards , but what a technician. He was fast , powerful and lots of skill.
Cheers, Joe.
