Yorikiri, or the "frontal force out," is another one of sumo's common winning techniques. In this move, the wrestlers are in very close contact, using full bodily force to drive the other one out of the ring. The attacker successfully pushes the other out while maintaining a grip on his opponent's mawashi (loincloth) at all times.
