March 2017, Day 7, Takakeisho v Ura

Takakeisho shows the best way to beat Ura – laser focus. Ura is incredibly flexible with an uncanny ability to absorb attacks by bending over backwards and slipping sideways or underneath your arms, so it’s important to keep him in your sights and not overcommit to the attack. He’s great at using your own offense against you. So Takakeisho is patient, keeping enough pressure on Ura to move him around the ring without losing control and sailing past him. Then, when the time is right, a powerful two-handed shove to the chest (but notice how controlled his feet are). Takakeisho earns his fourth win, Ura drops to 3-4.
