The Kid Should See This

Sumo Wrestling

To be the winner of a sumo bout, you have forced your opponent to either step out of the ring or touch the ground with some part of their body that is not the bottom of their feet. From National Geographic, watch this introduction to the Japanese sport of Sumo, a professional wrestling tradition exclusive to Japan.

More videos about culture are in the archives, including one of our favorites, New Zealand’s Haka Dance.
