March 2017, Day 1, Takekaze v Kisenosato

The first match of the first Grand Sumo Tournament in the career of brand-new Yokozuna Kisenosato. The guy’s a long-time veteran, but I’m sure the nerves are still there. He comports himself with the requisite gravitas, and his sumo looks solid and unshakeable. Meeting Takekaze with a bruising tachiai, Kisenosato keeps his hips low and his feet underneath him, working quickly to usher out his opponent. Looking good, shin-Yokozuna, looking good.
