Traditional Japanese Sport

Sumo is a time-honoured Japanese kind of sport. Its principle is the following: two athletes push each other out of the circle or force each other to touch the ground with any part of the body except the feet. It contains combat component, which combines elements of the show and traditions, as in Vietnam does.

Artefacts prove that sumo was widespread in Japan already in the III century. The initial record of sumo dates back to the VII-VIII century.

The end of the XVII century in Japan was “Golden” for this kind of sports. The rules of sumo were almost completely formed, the basic techniques were determined.

Sumo is an integral part of Japanese culture, which has been carefully preserved for generations.
