About this Episode

We receive many questions about gyoji, and though we can't answer them all, we do finally have a description of gyoji training for you. Learn about why gyoji look the way they do, and listen to the story of our highest ranked gyoji today.

Along the way, we discuss tassels, yoyos, semaphore, written reports, and the big wide world of refereeing sumo.

Just what are they yelling out there? Why do they dress like that? Who's THAT guy? What's his story? What happens if they make a wrong call? We've got some answers for ya!
