Battle for the Title -
"Sumo Warrior Champion"
One of the few things you can have at an event that may be even more fun to watch than it is to participate! Few things can compare to an event with sumo wrestling suits. It's not only amazing fun for the contestants, it's hilarious entertainment for the crowd watching as well.
Sumo Champion prospects don a stiff, heavily padded Sumo Suit and a sumo helmet. This allows limited movement, like a hilarious waddle or the popular "Sumo hop." The 2 sumo wrestlers then attempt to either force the opponent out of the circle or off their feet.
For added safety, the CO Bounce House Sumo Suit Rentals also includes an inflated ring around the wrestling mat for the wrestler's protection in those more excited sumo bouts.
The origin of Sumo Wrestling:
SUMO WRESTLING DATES BACK ABOUT 400 YEARS TO…
The Edo Period (Edo jidai), or Tokugawa period
(Tokugawa jidai), a division of the history of Japan
when it was ruled by the shoguns of the Tokugawa
family, running from 1603 to 1868.
HOW TO WIN A SUMO BOUT
The winner of a sumo bout is either:
1. The first wrestler to force his opponent to step out of the ring.
2. The first wrestler to force his opponent to touch the ground with any part of his body other than the bottom of his feet.
On rare occasions the referee or judges may award the win to the wrestler who touched the ground first; this happens if both wrestlers touch the ground at very nearly the same time and it is decided that the wrestler who touched the ground second had no chance of winning as, due to the superior sumo of his opponent, he was already in an irrecoverable position. The losing wrestler is referred to as being shini-tai (“dead body”) in this case.
There are also a number of other rarely used rules that can be used to determine the winner. For example a wrestler using an illegal technique (or kinjite) automatically loses, as does one whose mawashi (or belt) becomes completely undone. A wrestler failing to turn up for his bout (including through a prior injury) also automatically loses (fusenpai). After the winner is declared, an off-stage gyoji (or referee) determines the kimarite (or winning technique) used in the bout, which is then announced to the audience.
Matches often last only a few seconds, as usually one wrestler is quickly ousted from the circle or thrown to the ground. However, they can occasionally last for several minutes. Each match is preceded by an elaborate ceremonial ritual. The wrestlers themselves are renowned for their great girth as body mass is often a winning factor in sumo. However, with proper technique, smaller wrestlers can control and defeat much larger opponents.
