- n. a referee in a sumo match
• Rent a sumo wrestling ring for the day (01483 825804, sumoexperience. co.uk; delivered to venues throughout southern England from £200 for a party), which comes complete with a referee (a gyoji), the ring and foam fat suits.
The letter has been marked in thirteen places on the front and two places on the back with a square red stamp reading "Emperor's Seal" J. tennô gyoji.
And while they're at it, why not just scrap the rule in which the gyoji is permitted to change his mind about the keika (ph) of torikumi after he's pointed at the winning rikishi's tozisi (ph) with his gumbai?
