Prise de sumo: Isamiashi
  • 18 years ago
This is when the attacking rikishi accidentally steps too far forward and out of the ring before winning the match, giving the victory to his opponent. Isamiashi is recorded outside sumo’s official listing of winning techniques. The English translation was changed from “inadvertent step out” with the introduction of fumidashi (rear step out) in the 2001 winning technique list expansion.
