March 2017, Day 7, Nishikigi v Ishiura

This is the second shitatehineri (twisting underarm throw) for Ishiura this tournament, and while it’s not as pretty as the one he pulled off against Sadanoumi, it gets the job done. This one looks more like a magician yanking a tablecloth from underneath a full set of dishes, and it leaves Nishikigi flat on his stomach wondering why his feet aren’t on the ground anymore.
