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.
Chiyonofuji was great - but even he had respect for the power generated by the big boys: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ky54AVtT7UQ

Best,

Chris
