Meanwhile, in 2021, serious accidents that required safety measures occurred one after another. January 1th day (January 10th), MakushitaShonannoumiとAsatama groupAt the very beginning, the priest witnessed and waited for the failure.However, the heads collided with each other, and ShonannoumiConcussionI couldn't stand up because of the symptoms that seemed to occur.After the referees discussed and confirmed the intention of the person, the effort was redone.[37]However, this decision was said to be dangerous, and the Japan Sumo Association said at the board meeting after the first place, "If the referee admits that sumo wrestling is not possible before the wrestlers' wrestlers are established, after consultation. The sumo wrestler can be defeated in the war. "[38].

March place 3th day (March 13th), 3rd stageHibiki RyuWas scooped at the edge of the ground during the effort.At that time, the head fell between the bales of the ring and was pinched, and the head was fixed, and the person concerned who was closely watching that the pressure of the other party and himself might have been applied. Is talking[39]..Kyoryu couldn't move while lying down on the ring, and about one minute after he fell, the three callers turned over.Referee ChiefWas serving18s HanaregomaContacted the video room through an earphone / microphone, and from there he called the sumo clinic in the Kokugikan to call a doctor.Approximately 3 minutes later, a doctor arrived to check the condition of Kyoryu, put it on a stretcher, got off the ring, and carried it by emergency.It took about 6 minutes or more for a series of responses[40][41]..He was admitted to the hospital where he was transferred and was treated on suspicion of cervical spine injury, but he remained bedridden.Pulmonary thromboembolismOnset.Acute at 1:4 on April 29, about a month after the accidentRespiratory failureDied at the age of 28[42][43][44]..The original death case due to the accident in the effort was extremely unusual, and there were opinions criticizing the fact that medical personnel were not always on standby under the ring and the association's response in the event of an accident.[41].

In response to the situation in January and March, the association responded on May 1, before the May location, with about 3 participants including the referee / security master, the sumo clinic doctor, the youth head and the call. A treatment class was held around the ring of the Kokugikan[45]..The instructor wasNPO corporationYutaka Saho, representative of Sports Safety Japan (Athletic trainer)[46]So, he answered the interview that he received a request from the association, "I would like you to tell me how it should be transported in an emergency, and I would like you to verify it."Saho says that it is not realistic to have medical personnel always stand by under the ring for 15 days (from about 8:30 to 18:3) in this place, and it should be transported to a medical institution promptly. It was judged.Guidance is given to the master of the refereeing department about the unification of intentions and judgment criteria of who decides that it is an emergency, and the knowledge and skills of transportation are taught to the master of security along with the latest usage of the stretcher that can fix the head ( (Because even three rescuers cannot carry a wrestler), and after receiving specific questions from members of the association about the cases of various accidents that actually occur, they continued to consider further.[47][48].

The results of the seminar have been shown since May.According to an association official, when a sumo wrestler is injured, relief is given top priority, and the injured person is first transported. On the 5th day, when Daishosei was injured in the third stage of the 8th day and fell to the bottom of the ring, and when the beach of Koshiro hurt his knee and fell to the bottom of the red bunch in the 8th day of the Makushita effort. When Sacred Sae was injured in the Makushita effort and fell to the bottom of the ring, the master in charge of security rushed in immediately and a wheelchair was prepared within 14 minute and prompt transportation was carried out.[48].

In addition, the establishment of a safety management committee was decided at the regular board meeting on July 7, the same year.[49]..We will improve the environment for safe activities and training at this place and tours, conduct first aid training and seminars to take appropriate measures in the event of an accident, and prepare necessary equipment and parts. And create an emergency response plan assuming the worst situation[50][51]..The chairman is the chief of the security headquartersKasugano, The vice chairman is the deputy director of the refereeing departmentFujishimaServed, from each gateOnogawa(Ichimon Dewa),Naruto(Futatsunoseki Ichimon),中(Tokizu style Ichimon),Azumazeki(Takasago Ichimon),Aji River(Isegahama Ichimon) was appointed as a committee member.[52].


Remediation/salary allowance reduction (reduction)Suspension-Descent with number (master demoted. If you cannot demote, you will be promoted for a certain period)-Retirement recommendation-Dismissal-ExpulsionThere is. Also, although not in the prize and punishment regulations, the master of the room may have closed the room when it was disposed of (corrupted). Other than expulsion can be invoked by resolution of the board. It should be noted that strict caution is not the official disposition prescribed in the prize and penalty regulations.[53].


Expulsion was regarded as the heaviest discipline in the association under the former law foundation, and it was stipulated that the board of council was called in favor of more than three-quarters of the board of directors and a special resolution was made in favor of more than three-quarters of that. ..

1925 (TaishoAfter the Japanese Legal Foundation Japan Sumo Association was established in 14), there are no wrestlers or masters who have been dismissed through the former legal foundation or public interest incorporated foundations, especially after the end of the Showa era, the process until confirmation is loose with the board of directors. In most cases, "dismissal" has the same meaning as expulsion (see below). Before the warShimizu River,Manazuru,Fukuzumi, Etc. exist as examples of expulsion, but none are recognized as formal disciplinary action. Of these, Shimizu River and Fukuzumi were lifted after a certain period of time and returned to the sumo.

However, in the Meiji era, several wrestlers who tried to launch a different organization from the Sumo Association were expelled due to conflicting management methods,1873 (Meiji 6) The four-pronged name of the winter place has been black-painted.[54].. As a difference from dismissal, it is explained that the weekly post August 2012, 8, 17 issue will erase all records such as names and grades.

In the public interest incorporated foundation system, "dismissal" is equivalent to expulsion in practice (described later). If there is a situation where the fan's understanding cannot be obtained by dismissal, a special resolution of the board of council will respond[55].


"Dismissal" in the association isDisciplinary dismissalとDismissalIt is positioned as an intermediate form of. Since the 1990s because it can be flexibly handled by the board, it has been used to permanently exilate guilty active wrestlers and bosses from the association.

If sacked, a resolution of three-quarters of the board is passed.pension,Service allowance(For general companiesSeverance payIs equivalent to) is paid at the request of the principal if the Board of Directors does not make an additional resolution to suspend payment. No special service contributions (equivalent to special retirement payments for general companies; only Yokozuna and Ozeki) are not paid.

2009 (HeiseiWas dismissed in 21 years)Kirin ShinichiThere was also a call for expulsion in this case, but the external officer pointed out that "it is strange to dismiss (because the same case as the dismissal of the previous year) because you do not pay the endowment", and calmed down. For this reason, the Association amended the bylaws for enforcement of donations, and it was stipulated that some or all of the endowment could not be paid by an accompanying resolution of the Board of Directors even if dismissed.[56].. However, there are many cases in which even dismissals who were given the right to receive an endowment/retirement payment did not claim the Jiro Kirin.

2007 At the time of the 19th Tokitsukaze stable (15), the payment was frozen even though there was no explicit provision for payment of the endowment money to the dismissed person, so they were brought to the trial and eventually both parties settled.

Retirement advice

Retirement recommendation disposition according to award and penalty rules,2014 It was established at the same time as the public interest incorporated foundation (26). Although it is not as strong as "dismissal", it is said to be willing to not let it rise to the ring.Civil servantIt is expected to operate in a form similar to that of the applicant's retirement. The first application in this form was2018 (30)Big sandstorm.

In addition to the award and penalty rules for the association"Disciplinary provisions for deliberate apathy sumo"Also exists, and here from before"Retirement Recommendation"There was a system.

In addition, among wrestlers, it is virtually impossible for Yokozuna to descend.Yokozuna Deliberation CommitteeCan make "retirement recommendations".

The Board of Directors' recommendation for retirement can be timed and can be switched to enforceable termination if the retirement notice is not submitted by the due date. On the other hand, the court's recommendation for retirement is not enforceable.

Impact of new coronavirus infection

On March 3th of the same year when the infection spread in JapanOsaka Prefectural Gymnasium(Edion Arena Osaka) celebrated its first dayMarch placeWas held for the first time after the war by no spectators.In addition, regarding the March location, we decided on a policy that "if a wrestler infected with coronavirus appears during the spring venue, we will stop at that point", and we have thoroughly implemented infection prevention measures, health management, coverage regulations, etc. I was able to welcome Chiakigaku safely[68][69][70].

However, in April, after the location of March, there was a case of infection with the new coronavirus in Kakukai under the circumstances that the infection spread further in Japan and the government issued a declaration of emergency.Takadagawa RoomOf the master9th Takadagawa, Juryo wrestlersMt.

Initially, the July location was supposed to be held with no spectators, just like the March location, but due to the government's state of emergency being lifted, an admission limit of about 7 people per day was set. It will be carried out in the form of including the audience[75], It was decided to welcome Chiakigaku safely.

The association is a guideline based on expert advice to prevent infection of members[76]In principle, wrestlers are prohibited from going out and practicing, but during the July venue in MakuuchiFireThey go out at night in violation of the guidelines and are punished after the place[77]And so on.

The September location was held after the association members were asked to strictly adhere to the guidelines for infection prevention measures, but before the venueTamanoi roomIn Juryo wrestlersFuji EastA cluster in the sumo room, which is the second case in the Kakukai, occurs in which 24 members of the association belonging to the room, including14th TamanoiAll wrestlers, including the wrestlers, have been closed in September to prevent the spread of infection.[78][79]..Regarding the closure of the Tamanoi stable wrestlers, it is suggested that relief measures may be taken with the policy of discussing the handling of the ranking of the next place at the ranking organization meeting after the place.[80], At the ranking organization meeting after the place, the ranking of 28 wrestlers in the Tamanoi stable who took a rest will be left unchanged.[81].. On the other hand, I went out unnecessarily and urgently contrary to the guidelines.16s Tokitsuka,Teen MatsuganeWas closed for parents and then punished[82][83][84].

The November location is the same as the July locationFukuoka International CenterThe location was changed from to Kokugikan, and the maximum admission limit was raised to about 5,000.[85]..It was also decided to cancel the winter tour that is held in November and December every year, and as a result, in 11, the main place in the region will be only Osaka, which was held without spectators, and all the regional tours will be canceled.[86].. In December after the end of November, the number of infected people is increasing in Japan due to the decrease in temperature.Standing roomOf the Makuuchi wrestlersSky sea11 members of the association belonging to the room, including the one, were infected and became the third cluster in the Kakukai.[87]..Furthermore, during the year-end and New Year holidaysWild roomBut the master's8th generation Arashio stable, Makuuchi wrestlersWakatakakage, Juryo wrestlersWakamotoharuMultiple infections of 12 members of the association were found below[88]Infection in the sumo room continues.

Japan Sumo Association on December 12thKokugikanAt the annual general meeting, it was reported that the income and expenditure settlement in 2020 is expected to be a large deficit of about 55 billion yen, according to the people concerned.By the way, in 2011, when there was a match-fixing problem, the deficit was about 1 billion yen due to the cancellation of one place.[89].. On March 2021, 3, it was reported that the board of directors of the association reported that the financial results for fiscal 13 were reported to be in the red of about 2020 billion yen.As a result, profitability will be stopped for 50 consecutive years until 2019[90].. The deficit of 50 billion yen is the largest ever[91]..In May of this year, there were reports that the association would go bankrupt if sales continued to decline.[92].


Due to the increase in the number of infected people during the year-end and New Year holidays, the government has spread to 1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures (Saitama, Kanagawa, Chiba) including Tokyo, where the infection is particularly widespread.Pandemic influenza etc.Has been reported since the beginning of the year.In response to this, on January 1thShibataThe public relations manager revealed that the January location, which will be the first day of the same month, will be held as scheduled.[93]..A state of emergency was issued on the 7th of the same month.

Before January, there were sporadic announcements of infection by members of the association.On the 1th of the same monthMiyagino roomAffiliation 69s YokozunaWhite PengWas announced, and it became virtually impossible to participate in the January location, which has been attracting attention for advancing and retreating after the three locations that have continued since last year.All members of the association belonging to the same room were also tested and confirmed to be negative, but all the members of the same room will be closed in January to prevent the spread of infection.[96][97].

On the 9th of the same month, a simultaneous event was held for about 900 members of the association.PCR testThen, in MakuuchiChiyoshoma, JuryoChiyotoriFive people including Sekitori (two in the Kokonoe-beya and one in the Tomozuna stable) were newly found to be positive, and they were infected or concentrated, including those involved in each room who had positives since the end of the year. Due to suspicion of contact, it was decided to close the place in January as follows.As a result, 5 wrestlers, including 2 Sekitori, will be closed in January.[98], The 71st yokozuna who was closed due to back pain just beforeCrane dragonThe number of Sekitori people, including 16 people, was the largest after the war.[99](After that, OzekiNoble scenic[100], JuryoMinoumi[101]andMomentum[102]Was closed in the middle of the place, so the number of Sekitori people who were closed increased to 19).

After that, the infection in the Kokonoe-beya became more widespread throughout the place, and new members of the association who belonged to multiple rooms under the 14th generation of the master, Kokonoe-beya, became positive, and 17 people including those who were positive in the above-mentioned simultaneous test were infected. Known[104][105]..Although it was such an unusual situation, it was held with spectators until Chiakigaku on the 24th of the same month without any discontinuation.

However, in the March place ranking announced on March 3, in consideration of the performance of the participating wrestlers, among the wrestlers who were closed for the new corona, the wrestlers in the curtain and below the curtain are left unchanged, and one for ten wrestlers. Adjusted by lowering the ranking.In the future, we will continue to discuss the ranking of wrestlers who have been closed due to the new corona, at each location.[106][107][108].

On the other hand, on the 1th, the day before the first day of January,Sadogatake RoomBelongingFirst two stepsWrestlers own themselves because of concerns about new coronavirus infectionTwitterRetired at (Association member)Social MediaUse is prohibited by the association's internal regulations from November 2019, but a retirement notice has been submitted)[109]..According to the association, the master who received the offer of the first two wrestlers13th SadogatakeHe received a telephone consultation on the 8th and explained that he needed to submit a medical certificate during the holidays.[110]..The sumo wrestlerLabor lawCan't receive protectionSole proprietorshipTherefore, it is not possible to point out violations of the association's obligation to consider safety, and the person himself / herself will decide to advance or retreat.[111][Note 4]..The second stage wrestler finished the haircut ceremony in his room on the 10th.[112], Retirement announced by the association on the 27th after the place[113].

Have had heart surgery after getting started[114]The retirement of a second-tier wrestler was perceived as a "courageous decision," "wise judgment," and "correct and scared result."[115]..On the other hand, it was pointed out that the association lacked consideration for wrestlers and that it was harassment.Although the association has stated that it will be held after observing the guidelines and taking all possible measures to prevent infection, there are many wrestlers who are on leave due to infection or suspicion of close contact, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, where the Kokugikan is located, While counting the highest number of infected people in the past, there were many criticisms for holding spectators under the declaration of emergency by the government.[116].

On January 1th, after the place,16s TokitsukaWas reported to have gone out several times in violation of the association's guidelines throughout the location.At the extraordinary board meeting on February 2, the association dismissed the 22th Tokitsufu as a retirement recommendation (the 16th Tokitsufu retired on the same date.Togitsu style roomWith the same room20th generation MagakiIs in his 17sTokitsu wind(Succession)[61].

The March location, which will be held from March 3, will be held at the Kokugikan instead of Osaka from the perspective of the infection status of the new coronavirus and the prevention of its spread.[117]Prior to that, the results of the PCR test conducted on 750 wrestlers and other related parties were announced on the 11th of the same month, and all the wrestlers were negative for the new corona.29s Onogawa(Sankyo RoomWith),23th Otowayama(Onoe room(With) announced that parents are positive[118]..As a result, 28 wrestlers belonging to both Onoe and Yamabiki rooms will be closed in March as follows.[119][120].

In addition, the following parents who belong to the Social Contribution Department of the association as well as Onogawa in the 29th and Otowayama in the 23rd were negative in the test, but will be closed until the 4th day as a follow-up period.[120].

The May location, which will be held from May 5th, is the initial deadline from the first day due to the government's announcement of a state of emergency due to the third spread of the new coronavirus infection in Tokyo from April 9rd. It was decided that the event would be held without spectators until the 5rd day.[121]..The declaration was subsequently extended by the government until May 5st, but due to the relaxation of the event's spectator restrictions, the event will be held from the 31th (12th day) with spectators who have already purchased advance tickets. It became a thing[122]..In addition, by the first day of May placeToryuThere were sporadic cases of infected members of the association.[123][124]However, it did not reach a large-scale closure on the first day of May.

On the other hand, in MakuuchiRyuden, OzekiAsanoyamaWas found to have violated the association's guidelines.Ryuden will be closed from the first day at the discretion of the master[125], Asanoyama in the placeSports NipponSumo reporter (later the companyDismissal[126]) And multiple night outs were reported.Going out was during the state of emergency and during the period when the association notified the prohibition of going out (from the announcement of the ranking to Chiakiraku).Asanoyama denied that the association was "factless", but after that, he admitted the facts and has been closed since the 20th (12th day).[127][128].. After the May location, the board of directors on the 5th of the same month decided to dispose of Ryuden and his master Takadagawa, and the extraordinary board of directors on June 27 decided to dispose of Asanoyama and his master, Takasago 9th.[129][130]..In addition, the former master of the Takasago stable had a room since October 2020.18th Nishikishima(7th Takasago) is virtually forced to retire[131][132].

It will be held from July 7thSumo wrestling Nagoya placeAs plannedAichi GymnasiumIt will be held at (Dolphin's Arena).The local venues other than the Kokugikan will be held since the spring venue in Osaka, which was held without spectators the previous year, and the regional venues with spectators will be held since the Kyushu venue in 2019.[133].

The Sumo Association provided the Kokugikan in Sumida Ward as a mass inoculation venue for the new coronavirus vaccine, and the entrance to the Kokugikan became the inoculation venue. After the May location, the box seats will be released as a waiting area for follow-up after inoculation, and a lottery will be held to win the signature colored paper of the yokozuna.[134][135]..Inoculation to members aged 5 and over on May 24 with Sumida Ward residents[136][137][138], On June 6rd and 23th, inoculations were given to the masters and wrestlers on a room-by-room basis.[139][140].

The movement to Nagoya is done on a room-by-room basis, not on the usual "sumo train" where members of the association board the Shinkansen as a group.[141]..During the show, following the infection control measures at the Kokugikan, tours and exchanges with local residents will be suspended at the dormitories in each room, and wrestlers will be restricted from going out except for some.[142]..In addition, there were some rooms where the hotel was used as a dormitory and there was no ring for training in the dormitory during the stay.[143]..As a result of these infection control measures, the event was successfully completed without any new positives or violations of the guidelines during the Nagoya venue.[144]But on July 7th after the placeTakasago roomOf the masterTakasago Master, A cluster in which 7 members of the association, including Asanoyama, who has been suspended, has been infected has occurred.[145].

On the other hand, the 69th Yokozuna Hakuho is originally prohibited from entering by anyone other than those involved as it is held without spectators.2020 Tokyo OlympicsJudo venueTokyo BudokanIt is revealed from the SNS posts of the people concerned that they visited and had a chat with the people involved in the competition.Hakuho is an ambassador for the Mongolia Olympic Committee and is believed to have visited as a NOC (National and Regional Olympic Committee) official, but the guidelines require members of the association to refrain from going out unnecessarily. However, it has not been stated whether or not the master Miyagino's master had permission to go out, and Shibatayama's public relations manager has severely criticized Hakuho's actions, and public opinion has also expressed harsh opinions.[146][147].

From September 9th to September, after the clustering in the Takasago stable mentioned above, the frontalYano CastleAnd ten carsPukchong Peng,Tail roomAffiliation caretakerNishikikazeAmong them, the infection of Kita Seiho and another wrestler was revealed, and it has been decided that all the wrestlers belonging to the Miyagino stable will be closed in September.[148].

On October 11, before the November location, the Sumo Association announced that it had issued a notice to each room.After the spread of the infection in the spring of 10, the practice of the sumo room was closed to the public, but from November 22, when the Sumo Association members completed the second PCR test, they became close relatives and supporters at the discretion of the room master. It is said that training tours will be possible as long as possible.However, as an infection prevention measure, temperature measurement, disinfection of fingers, and wearing a mask are obligatory, and contact with wrestlers is prohibited.[149][150].

Furthermore, at the November location, it was notified that after the 11th day of the venue, the association members would be allowed to go out conditionally.The conditions are "get permission from the master when going out", "check the temperature and physical condition before going out", "be careful not to drink too much and not get drunk", "finish the dinner by 13:22 and go home" After observing the rules such as, it will be permitted to eat out and eat out with the supporters after 18:13.However, the use of stores with entertainment will continue to be prohibited.Shibatayama, the spokesman for the media, told the media representative, "Although the world is operating and acting under normal circumstances, the members of the association are taking strict infection control measures. At least it affects this place. This time, it will be relaxed in a situation where there is no such thing. From the 6th day, even if something should happen, the place can be closed. There is a possibility that the sixth wave will come. I want the members of the association to relax and refresh their feelings. "[151][152].


The new coronavirus, which has been prevalent overseas since the end of the previous yearOmicron strainInflux is also seen in Japan, and the number of infected people is increasing due to the active flow of people during the year-end and New Year holidays.Tagonoura RoomOf the master16th Daita KonouraTwo wrestler training members and one Tokoyama were found to be infected, and in the MakuuchiTakayasu14 members of the association belonging to the same room, including the one, announced that the first place will be closed as "there is a possibility of positive people and close contact".[153][154]..Further on the first dayNishikido roomThe infection of Okami (Mrs. Master) was found, and the master became a close contact.Teen NishikidoAnd tenMito RyuIt was announced that the first place of the four wrestlers would be closed (the next day, the teenage Nishikido was also positive.[155])[156].

Infection prevention measures at Kokugikan

When holding the main venue at the Kokugikan, measures will be taken to increase the number of visitors from non-spectators as the days pass, and as a measure to prevent infection of the spectators, restrictions on the use of square seats for 4 people (1 person → 2 people separated by tape) Changed for), prohibition of drinking, establishment of dining space, refraining from cheering and recommending applause[85]We are taking measures, and in cooperation with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, where the Kokugikan is located, we have created five types of announcement flags that are the same size as the sweepstakes flags (120 cm long and 70 cm wide).Calls with a notification flag go around the ring three times in total between efforts to raise awareness of infection prevention measures.[157].

In July 2021, the association published a document entitled "Wearing masks around the ring and on the flower road," and distributed printed matter to spectators who came to watch the game to explain it.According to it, all members of the association perform a PCR test in front of the place, only those who are negative participate and disinfect the broom used for disinfecting fingers and calling, and experts are about 7 to 1 minutes about the efforts of wrestlers. Therefore, it is judged that it does not hit the close contact.The wrestlers, judges, priests, and callers remove the mask only around the ring and on the flower road, but this is to protect the stylistic beauty of sumo wrestling, which is a traditional culture. I am doing.It is also stated that all members of the association have behavior restrictions for about one month in the place from three days before the announcement of the ranking, and they are strict punishment for those who break the rules.[158].

Association funeral

For those who have contributed greatly to the development of the sumo world while in office or active, the funeral of the Japan Sumo Association is held. As a general rule, only for those who have died while working or who are Yokozuna[159].. However, he retired from the associationDewa no HanakokuNeither the three roles nor the presidentKashiwado HideyoshiThere is an example of an association funeral, although I have no experience with Sekitori.In addition, the 58th yokozunaChiyo no MitsuguWas an experienced director and died as an active member of the association, but was held as a farewell party, not as an association funeral.again,Chiyonoyama MasanobuとTakanosato ToshihideDied as a former yokozuna member of the association, but since he was not an experienced director, the association was not buried.

Also, because he died after retiring from the associationFirst Wakano Miki,Sada's Yamamatsu,Kaiketsu MasateruIs not a burial of the association, but a yokozuna and a director who has experience as a directorKouki TaihoHowever, since the farewell party was not held at the Kokugikan Endras Hall because of the retirement of the association, there are some doubts about the standards for the association burial.

The past association burials are also different from those held at the Kokugikan Arena and at the Endras Hall, and the aforementioned Chiyonofuji farewell party was not held at the Kokugikan Arena, but it was held at the Kokugikan Arena. There is also a contradiction that it becomes a de facto association funeral.
