Taihō Kōki

Series of elevation drawings of Taihō Kōki in sumo positions measured with overall height

Taihō Kōki was a professional sumo wrestler from Japan who took home at least a championship each year. He also won forty consecutive matches between the years 1968 to 1969. Besides, he became the youngest wrestler at his time to become a yokozuna. Taihō possessed thirty-two tournament championships, including winning six consecutive tournaments in a row on two different occasions. These successes made him be considered among the greatest sumo wrestlers and a role model among children and other sumo wrestlers like Hakuhō. He preferred to win using the yori-kiri, while to grip rivals using the hidari-yotsu.

Sumo is a type of combative sport, where two individuals attempt to throw the opposing player onto the ground or outside of the rounded boundary. Invented and practiced in Japan, the sport is typically preformed by sumo wrestlers who are heavier set in weight and thereby stronger in force.
