Have you ever seen a sumo match?

On Sunday 8th February, we watched a professional sumo wrestling competition at the Ryōgoku Kokugikan sumo hall!
Unlike normal, where the wrestlers tour Japan for their matches, this was a one day tournament.

Other than the tournament, there was also a Children VS Wrestlers competition and a Comic Sumo performance full of gags. It was a really fun event.

During the tournament, we got all our students to answer our Sumo Quiz. The award for the winner was a 2015 Sumo Calendar. The present came from one of our Coto Japanese Academy staff members, Kimie Abo.

Her father is a former sumo wrestler!

A live sumo match is intense and full of Japanese tradition. Students said it was fun, and that they wanted to take their families to see it.
