About this Episode

This week, sumo fans were surprised to hear about an abrupt retirement of a top-level sumo wrestler. So, what happened? Why would a 22 year-old wrestler retire so suddenly? And, what does that mean for his coach and stable master?

We'll give you the timeline of what happened and discuss the levels of elder status in the sumo association.
