Asashoryu and Harumafuji Sumo Practice

imageOldie but goodie here… It is a rare opportunity to glimpse the training of a Sumo wrestler.  This is a short clip of two of the best ever to fight the game, Harumafuji and Asashoryu (my personal favorite) prior to his premature retirement.  A few things to notice in this clip:

  • How small the dojo is!
  • How absolutely ripped and strong these cats are!
  • How intensely they train
  • Basic.  Nothing fancy or contrived here.  Just simple hardwork, technique, and discipline!
