November 2016, Day 8, Kyokushuho v Ishiura

Ishiura looks embarrassed at how easily he beats Kyokushuho. Not exactly meeting head-on at the tachiai, Ishiura gets his left hand on the belt and his right arm hooked around Kyokushuho’s upper right arm, swinging him forward and down for an excellent record of 7-1 after eight days. I don’t know if he’s following the tradition of U.S. baseball players superstitiously letting their beard grow throughout a tournament, but Ishiura’s got a nice ‘stache coming in, too. Maybe I’ll call him Scruff & Tough.
