Yokozunas Harumafuji, left, and Kakuryu perform a "sandan gamae" three-level ceremonial pose at the Ryogoku Kokugikan on Oct. 4, 2016. The display was part of an event to promote the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics. The sandan gamae is only executed during special events, and it represents a strong spirit, attack and defense. It was the first time the sandan gamae was performed since 1995. (Mainichi)
