WEIRD SCIENCE:
Finger length may reveal a Sumo champion!


When looking at Sumo wrestling, the LAST thing on your mind is probably the Sumo wrestlers' hands. Much more likely, people will think about how they could probably get crushed by the ussually impressive amount of weight of a Sumo wrestler.

However, interestingly, hands do matter in Sumo wrestling! And last month a study revealed that a Sumo wrestler's hand might even reveal whether he is likely to become a Sumu champion.

Hi Martijn thanks for sharing this Thank you!

This picture in the center belongs to our Estonian hero Baruto Smile who wants to become sumo’s first grand champion from Europe.
(he was promoted to sumo’s second-highest rank of ozeki on 2010)

Looks that he has a high ratio and I'm glad to hear that the effect size they found was smaller than in other sports, especially those requiring large amounts of endurance.

Here is more hand prints, for about 40 sumo wrestlers

 Sumo wrestling in Japan: finger length might reveal the next champion! 4994444

Recently a new 'digit ratio' study revealed that index finger length correlates positively with hip circumference in females, and ring finger length correlates positively with waist circumference in males:
http://maxwellsci.com/jp/abstract.php?jid=AJMS&no=217&abs=07


(I think it would be appropriate to report this new 2012 study in this topic... because even though Sumo wrestlers always have 'big bellies' and a wide waist, we have seen in the earlier report posted in this topic that not all Sumo wrestlers have a small digit ratio, so this kind of shows that it is quite hard to translate these findings into practical guidelines regarding a hip-to-waist ratio in an individual)

Fascinating... the handprint with authography phenomenon is in the Japanese Sumo wresting world known as under the name 'Tegata'; the handprint is usually made in red color.

Here's a website presenting 115 Tegatas:
http://www.sumoforum.net/tegata/


PS. A quick assessment of a few Tegatas indicates that many Sumo wrestlers appear to have an 'earth/air hand shape' or 'earth hand shape'.

Here's a 1991 video showing how Tegata handprints are made in large amounts by Japanese Sumo wrestlers... probably with the purpose to sell them???

 Sumo wrestling in Japan: finger length might reveal the next champion! Empty Finger ratio and Waist/Hip ration

Post  Felicity Martin on Sat Dec 19, 2015 1:40 am

Hi and thanks Martijn for posting the article on waist to hip ratios

I found this most interesting and it corresponds to my low ratio - more masculine- and a tendency for apple shaped as opposed to pear shaped configuration. Has there been any more search in this area? It is quite significant health wise.
