Takanoyama Suntaro Highlight

Sumo is one of my favorite combat sports to watch, and though it has not gained the following it should here in North America, it is incredibly popular in Eastern Europe.  Takanoyama Suntaro is the the Czech Republic's first professional sekitori.

Study on this great clip where Takanoyama showcases a number of various takedowns and throws, as well as the strategy and tactics he employs due to his lighter weight.  Keep in mind Sumo is truly a mixed martial art as throws, locks, and strikes (open hand only) are all allowed. 

Thanks to our friend Roy Dean for this clip!

Enjoy,
Jake
