SUMO HIRE - Fun Facts
The origins of sumo date back 2000 years.
Wrestlers (rikishi) spend most of their time performing pre-bout ceremonies steeped in Shinto tradition.
Shinto word itself means "way of the gods."
Sumo was originally performed to entertain the gods (kami) during festivals (matsuri).
How to wrestle
Before the individual wrestler (rikishi) enter the ring, they must be introduced to the excited spectators. Once done they face each other in the ring. each wrestler claps their hands once, and finally raise both hands in unison. (This old Japanese tradition goes back to the samurai days and represents the rikishi showing each other that none is armed.)
Once the actual fight begin, the two wrestlers (rikishi) spend time before their match lifting their legs high in the air and stomping them down, a practice said to scare away any demons. After scaring off any demons they also throw several handfuls of salt into the ring, which is said to purify the ring. Many wrestlers will also sprinkle salt around their bodies as a means of protecting them from injury.
During the actual event, a rikishi wrestler may use any technique or maneuver type except the following;
Pulling their opponent's hair,
Hitting their opponent with a closed fist
Boxing their opponent's ears
choking their opponent
Grabbing his opponent in the crotch area.
Wrestlers (Rikishi) use all sorts of techniques during the fight; however, a rikishi's tactical style can usually be classified as one of two styles:
oshi-zumo : A tendency to push your opponent out of the ring
yotsu-zumo : A tendency to grab your opponent's belt and force him out of the ring. The truly best rikishi are adept at using both styles to beat their opponents.
Team building out of your suits
Team building Parties are great for corporate events, traditionally wrestlers would be split up into groups of a minimum of 3 rikishi these groups are known as stables, or sumo-beyas. Of course Rikishi who belong to the same group do not fight each other at major tournaments.
We understand the main limitations of sumo parties is the fact that only two wrestlers can fight at one time on a ring. because of this we have a range of other party idea's to insure that nobody is left feeling bored or left out. From our range of massive screens, allowing you to play your favorite games console games in live size, to disco's and Karaoke's. We have something to keep everyone entertained
