March 2017, Day 9, Myogiryu v Ura

Ura runs into trouble again against the higher-level competition in the top division. He’s going to have to figure out how to put together some offense instead of just running around and waiting for his opponent to make a mistake. Don’t get me wrong, he’s really good at that, but it’ll only get him so far against skilled competition. Myogiryu does a fantastic job of keeping his feet wide and mobile and his hips low and underneath him, making sure Ura stays in front of him with no hope of escape. You can see Ura try to move laterally, but Myogiryu just smothers him.
