May 2017, Day 10, Kaisei v Ura

Man, I love a good kirikaeshi, and Ura executes it flawlessly. Getting Kaisei stumbling forward with the katasukashi (under-shoulder swing down), Ura then charges into the side of Kaisei, who defends with a right-side armlock throw. But Ura quickly catches himself by hooking his left leg behind Kaisei’s right, and leaning into his big opponent to drop him with the kirikaeshi (twisting backwards knee trip). Ura gets his second consecutive top-division kachikoshi (winning record), improving to 8-2, while Kaisei picks up his fourth loss.
