Talking Sumo

I am just surprised this has not been brought up anywhere? What do you all think of Sumo events. I kinda like them they are slow to watch but once the action starts can be quite exciting and very physical at times.

the rules in sumo are actually kinda simple, you either need to push or throw your opponent out of the circle or knock him off thier feet, there is no punching or kicking, it is mainly a game of leverage ,power, and speed.

yea Sumo is one of the oldest and contonious organized competitions in the world with lots of tradation to it, plus I think they now allow the competitors to wear spandex shorts under thier belts so people do not have to look at thier butts, this ws done though in order to attract new competitors who might be to shy about wrestling in a diaper, hell the greeks and romans wrestled nude I guess the japanese are a bit more modest

lol i definately think so, the japanese are very modest, but to me if u want to keep up a tradition like sumo or bull fighting, just an example they shouldnt change anything.
its wat we all associate sumo with, butts!
but i really think i wouldnt want to see men wrestling naked, well maybe :P.
i think sumo has started to become a bit extinct around the world but people should really watch it, its honorouble and people can learn alot about japan itself.
kewl!
sorry i'm just getting some really horrible flashbacks!

true you don't but when it is on it usully on for hours, most people find it boring cause there is like 20 minutes between matches and the matches last on average 30 seconds but it is an exciting 30 seconds
