Right! He came in a year ahead of Tochinoshin, and encouraged and 
helped him a lot in his early days (when on my way home from work and 
maybe music rehearsal or session I used to see the two youngsters 
sitting on the fence of a tiny triangular park in Ryogoku and often 
stopped to chat with them). Unfortunately injury held him back while 
Tochinoshin surged forward. I really hope he is now back on the 
sekitori track.
