Name / origin

Edo periodPrevious sumoBecause the etymology of "head" is, to be exact, "wrestler" and "Previous sumoThe rating of all wrestlers other than wrestlers located at the two extremes is frontal.ThereforeNumberingIn the tableTen cars-Makushita-Third stage-First two steps-IntroductionThe wrestlers also have a "frontal" ratingFour-pronged nameIs described[1].

Therefore, for example, it is correct to call the sumo wrestler at the top of the Makushita as "the first in front of the Makushita", and the second wrestler in the Makushita as "the second in front of the Makushita". It has become common to say something like.From these things, there is no problem with "frontal = flat wrestler" as a general usage.However, it is not customary to say that falling from the San'yaku to the flat curtain "falls to the front", but that the Juryo wrestlers enter the curtain "goes to the front".In the following description, the term "frontal" simply refers to "frontal in a narrow sense (= flat curtain)" and does not include "frontal in a broad sense (= frontal on the numbering table)".

The front is from the top to the front (not called the first one)[Annotation 1]), The second frontal sheet, the third frontal sheet, and so on, each with one east and west.

There is no fixed number of people in the front.

Currently, the total number of wrestlers in Makuuchi is 42 (since January 2004), and the number of wrestlers excluding Yokotsuna and the three roles is the front.Ozeki (orYokotsuna Ozeki)・関脇・小結は最低でも2人ずつ置かねばならないため、現行制度では理論上は前頭は最大で36人(東西18枚ずつ)在籍できる計算になる。幕内の定員が42人となる以前については、前頭の最多人数は1957年(昭和32年)の3月場所と9月場所の46人(東西23枚ずつ)、戦後の最少人数は1967年(昭和42年)の22人(東西11枚ずつ)である。


Breaking the yokozuna in the front positionVenusIt's called (Kinboshi), and every time you get itSalaryGoes up.On the other hand, defeating Ozeki is sometimes called Ginboshi or Shukun no Hoshi, but this does not affect salary.However, as a matter of course, Venus will be interviewed by the announcer after the efforts on the NHK Sumo Wrestling broadcast, even if it is Ginsei (or if the San'yaku wrestler wins Ozeki or Yokozuna).


A sumo wrestler who won the flat curtain

There are few examples of a frontal victory compared to a victory with three or more roles.By convention, instead of "frontal victory", "Flat curtainExpressed as "winning".It occurs approximately once every few years.

Censoring was also frequent.Just as there is a "good man who lives in 2 days a year" in Senryu in the Edo period, at that time the main place in Edo was twice a year, 1 days each, for a total of 2 days.[6].
