There is a Sumo tournament going on right now, so a bunch of us went today to check it out. It was a really cool Japanese experience. There is so much ritual to each bout. There is alot of lunging, foot stamping, and salt throwing involved. The bouts last for about 5-10 minutes each, but the actual wrestling is only a few seconds. Each Sumo wrestler has one only one shot per day, so the winning is based on a couple of seconds. They really get tossed around! This one match ended up in the crowd with one wrestler crashing into this unlucky old woman!
