Sumo wrestler Konishiki Yasokichi rates eight sumo fights in movies and TV shows, such as “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Isle of Dogs,” for realism.
Konishiki discusses the accuracy of throwing techniques in “The Outsider” (2018), “Isle of Dogs” (2018), “Memoirs of a Geisha” (2005), “Austin Powers in Goldmember” (2002), and “The Quest” (1996). He also comments on sumo lifestyle and training in “Hinomaru Sumo” S1E6 (2018), “Sumo Do, Sumo Don’t” (1992), and “Secret Society” (2000).
Konishiki was the first non-Japanese-born wrestler to reach the level of ?zeki, the second-highest rank. He made his debut in 1982 and trained at Takasago stable. He is the host of the educational children’s show “Nihongo de Asobo” and has been featured in the films “Chekeraccho!!” and “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.”
He now tours with the Sumo and Sushi dining experience from SE Productions, which returns across the US in 2023.
