Sumo wrestling 相撲

On Wednesday January 20th 2010 I went to see Sumo Wrestling for the first time in my life.
I wasn’t too familiar with the sport and all I knew was one basic rule: If one big guy steps or falls out of the circular ring (dohyo), he ‘s out.

For my first Sumo experience I got to see Asashoryu (in black) versus Baruto (in blue) for what was to become a historical bout.

Baruto Kaito is the first Estonian to reach the top divison of Sumo. He ties his Blonde hair up in a chonmage just like any other All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All Japan news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news newsese or Mongolian wrestler and weighs 188kg for 1m98cm.

Asashoryu Akinoki a notorious Mongolian Sumo Wrestler was forced to retire by the All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All Japan news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news newsese Sumo Association 2 weeks after I went to see his victory at Ryogoku Kokugikan. He made the news for assaulting a man outside a Roppongi nightclub whilst under the influence of alcohol.

The crowd really got excited for this bout.

Sumo wrestling isn’t just a rigid sport anchored in All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All All Japan news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news news newsese culture where two overweight muscular wrestlers try to push one another from a circle. During my first experience of live Sumo, I couldn’t help but to notice how beautiful the colours of the wrestlers and judges kimonos are, as well as the earthly dohyo. I came to the conclusion that the sport was full of warmth and humour that comes from the sumosan themselves – and possibly from its sponsors too.

I now consider myself a Sumo-Fan.
