Sumo wrestling is one of the oldest sports in the world. In Japan, it is called Torikomu. It is also known as Nippon-Zento. It is a traditional sport where two men are put into an arena, each holding a stick called Kudzu. Whoever gets the first strike in the center of the ring is declared the winner.
There have been many great Sumo wrestlers throughout the years. Some of the names that appear on the Sumo roster include Sadakanakado, Gorilla, Kiseki and Okumura. The Sumo Association was actually created to introduce a more controlled professional wrestling scene. There are now three separate associations in the Japanese professional wrestling scene. There is the Sumo Federation (Mitsuha-gae), the Sumo Association (Kiseki-gae) and the Sumo Council (Mochi-zendo).
Sumo wrestling has several different styles.
Each of these styles was created for a specific purpose. Kiseki is a style of wrestling which is primarily used for protection. Most professionals use a variation of the Shodokan style. This involves a couple of steps that go from the standing position, then transitioning to the tai-page position.
Many of the moves used in modern day sumo wrestling are the same as those used in modern day mixed martial arts. However, there are some specific moves that are unique to the style of Sumo. Two of the most famous moves in the sport of sumo are the Senkaku and the Kiseki.
The term “Senkaku” means “Throwing in the towel.” The phrase is often shouted by both beginner and advanced sumo wrestlers to indicate that it is time to end the match. One of the most common mistakes that beginner wrestlers make is not performing the senkaku at the beginning of the match. Even experienced sumo pros will often wait until the middle of the match to perform this move. The key to successfully performing the senkaku is to have strong legs and rely on your own power to throw the opponent out of the ring. There are a few other factors involved in this move, but we’ll save those for another article.
“Kiseki” means “clawing”. The term kiseki has been used increasingly often in the sports world, but what does it mean in the context of sumo? Basically, when wrestlers are fighting each other, a lot of strategy goes into deciding who will get their legs first. Most professional wrestlers know exactly what a wrestler should do before the match starts. They prepare for the match in advance by practicing the various kisekis, or claw holds, that they will use on their opponents.
There are many variations of these two moves, but two of the most commonly known are the shakan and gohonzakana. These terms literally translate as “claw and grasp” or “the claw and grasp technique”. In order to understand exactly how these two sumo techniques work, it’s important to understand how each of them can be used as a base for additional moves. For example, in the shakan, a wrestler will use both hands to grab one knee of his opponent and use it to bring him to the mat.
Many other karate and sumo techniques exist, but these two will give you a good idea of the foundations that you need to know. There are many more details to learn about sumo, but these two will give you an idea of the main points.
