About this Episode

After some news and sumo poetry, we launch into a discussion of kimarite with Bruce, who thinks we need more of them! To prove his point, he launches into a discussion of the henka. There's a lot of variety in this one simple move! We break down of some of best varieties of this move from Haramafuji, Hakuho, Chiyoshoma, and more.

"The henka is generally frowned upon..."

"You may hear some older fans grumble about Chiyoshoma... the henka dispenser."

"Uncle Sumo was the master of the henka."

"Henka is not a kimarite."
