Sumo Documentary

I have yet to see anything as comprehensive and exact as this NHK production on the art of Sumo wrestling.  A wonderful 5 part series that should be watched by anyone who is a casual fan, or involved in any martial art.  Hakuho's insight into the mental aspect of Sumo-tori is great, and the bio mechanics of his posture when issuing and receiving force is amazing!  Hakuho credits solid basics in his climb to the highest rank in Sumo (yokozuna).

Enjoy,
Jake
