Great Sumo Takedown - Chongake

Sorry embedding was not available for this clip, but here is the clip of Asasekiryu doing a pulling heel hook on Wakanosato at the May Sumo Basho. Called a Chongake in Sumo. Rarely seen in Sumo this technique is similar to a ankle pick in wrestling, and is quite a common move seen in Judo, as well as Northern Mantis.
