Sumo Wrestler

« Back to Glossary Index

A sumo wrestler is an athlete taking part in the traditional form of heavyweight Japanese Wrestling. The sport is taken place in a marked circle where one of the wrestlers has to force the other out of the circle or force the other wrestler onto the ground in order to score a point. Sumo Wrestlers are also famous for their remarkable size, exercise, and diet where they are required to eat an enormous lunch called Chanko-nabe, a Japanese stew comprised of a large variety of vegetables and protein.
