Sumo styles can broadly be broken down into two types: Oshi-sumo, or “thrusting” style, and Yotsu-sumo, or “grappling” style. The former is about brute force and pushing your opponent out of the ring; the latter is more about forcing your opponent to the ground or using their momentum against them.
His favorite style is Oshi-sumo (thrusting).
Yokozuna Idofuno is mainly a bulldozer who prefers driving straight forward and pushing HOWEVER from time to time, depending of his opponent, he likes to change of strategy on the fly.
- Hookers are wrestlers who look to dig deep for an underhook and a strong hold on the opponent’s mawashi (that sumo thong).
- Bulldozers are those who attempt to drive straight into the opponent and push him out of the dohyo.
- Boxers are those who immediately open up with palm strikes to the chest and face.
- Stranglers are wrestlers who immediately attempt to drive the opponent back by the neck.
- Matadors are those who side step the tachi-ai and allow their opponent to drive past them. (source)
Exceptionally talented, Idofuno is proficient in all five categories.
