March 2017, Day 12, Tochinoshin v Nishikigi

Tochinoshin sits at seven losses and really doesn’t want to get his demotion-ensuring eighth. With his bum right knee he’d rather not get pulled into a protracted battle, so he doesn’t waste time taking care of Nishikigi. A left hand on the back of the head combines nicely with a scooping right-arm sukuinage (beltless arm throw) and Tochinoshin survives another day. He’ll need to win the last three days in a row to prevent a drop in the rankings next tournament.
