Practices focus on three aspects
Mind, Body, Spirit
Sumo practice is intense and can be very physically draining. While we will allow each student to move at their own pace, there will be conditioning as well as sparring available at every practice. We will be teaching the prescribed Curriculum from the United States Sumo Federation President Tom Zabel.
Students will be prepared to test at tournaments when two Dan Ranking Members are present. Forms for testing are available here on the Kyu Grades testing forms page.
