Contradiction in Japanese martial arts "Budo"

Kisenosato become the yokozuna, and sumo wrestling again?

I see Asashoryu when I see sumo. While pridefully overwhelmingly strong, I continued to criticize by doing a guts pose with the ring, and eventually retired with leaving enough power.

It seems that pleasing
pose in the ring is criticized because it is taken as an act of insulting the opponent from the idea of ​​respecting bow in martial arts. The humble feeling that you can compete as opponent is important is important.

If so, how about the judo players in the Olympic Games? Many players take gold medal in judo of exercise.

Why any media will not criticize players who play guts at the moment they won in the final game. Will not you feel a sense of incompatibility by looking at the scene to thank you after doing a guts pose many times over and over?
Or is not judo a martial art?

Sumo is seen by many people in the country, and there are many fans overseas. However, it can not be said that it is extremely few as compared with the Olympic games seen by people all over the world.

On the best stage of the Olympic Games that inform the Japanese martial arts around the world many players repeat acts that do not thank their opponents, which is seen by people all over the world.

Why is it that there is a foreign wrestler who wonders that judo may be forgiven for guts pose but not for sumo wrestling even though it is the same martial arts?

I must feel like I have to ask the "spirit of martial arts" itself.
