September 2016, Day 6, Chiyoshoma v Ikioi

Chiyoshoma provides a little master class on the underarm throw today against Ikioi. He starts by getting a hidari-yotsu (left under, right over) belt grip, keeping his torso low and hips away from Ikioi’s right arm. Once his grip is settled he draws Ikioi in close, turns his hips, puts his left leg in between Ikioi’s, and executes the throw from the left side. Chiyoshoma’s left leg prevents Ikioi from regaining his balance, and Ikioi winds up in the dirt.
