May 2017, Day 11, Takekaze v Arawashi

Arawashi pulls off a nifty trick, utilizing a rare technique called ketaguri (pulling inside ankle sweep). It happens really fast, but at the tachiai Arawashi reaches out to pull down on Takekaze’s head, while simultaneously sweeping forward with his left foot. The left foot connects with Takekaze’s left knee, knocking his leg out from under him. Takekaze now has eight losses, and Arawashi is 4-7.
