November 2015, Day 12, Kitataiki v Homarefuji

Kitataiki (5-7) vs. Homarefuji (2-10). Kitataiki shows great sumo instinct in his bout today. Both men have a strong tachi-ai, and simultaneously get belt grips (Kitataiki with right-hand over, Homarefuji with left-hand under). When Homarefuji tries to use his underhand grip to throw Kitataiki, he turns a bit too far sideways. Kitataiki immediately hooks his right leg around Homarefuji’s and shows him the way to the ground. Haven’t seen too many leg techniques this tournament, but this is a good sotogake (outside leg trip).
