Kisenosato Yutakawas born July 3, 1986 as Yutaka Hagiwara in Ibaraki, Japan.
He made his professional debut in 2002, and reached the top makuuchi division in 2004 at the age of just 18.
Kisenosato is mainly a yotsu-sumo wrestler, and his favourite grip on his opponent’s mawashi is hidari-yotsu, or right hand outside, left hand inside. His most common winning kimarite is yori kiri (force out), followed by oshi dashi (push out) and tsuki otoshi (thrust over).
Kisenosato earned three kinboshi or gold star defeats of yokozuna in his career leading up to ozeki, and nine special prizes as of June 2016. He has yet to win over a top division champ, though many speculate he is en route to be the first Japanese-born Yokozuna in many years.
