I lived in Japan for seven years and as did many ex-pats, my husband and I became ardent sumo fans, watching on T.V. every basho and going to see the Tokyo basho. Even managed to visit the training gyms a few times.

Sumo should not be categorized as "wrestling," as this ancient sport is not wrestling as we know it. Americans love to categorize things in order to make them familiar as in koala or panda "bear". Hope you can make that distinction.
