British Sumo is the Official governing body for Sumo as recognised by the International Sumo Federation.
British Sumo was established at the invitation of the Japanese
in 1985 by former Olympian Syd Hoare and has been successful in World Championships with Steve Pateman, Bill Etherington, Kevin Emslie and Adele
Jones all winning medals.
Our wrestlers are available for TV work, displays, commercials.
Sumo is a very simple sport to learn because there are no complex rules.
Anyone, man or woman, is invited to contact us to have a go!! You never know....you could be a future Champion
We often have introductory sessions in various parts of the country.
The last was in Doncaster where we also had a Novice competition and this was won by Doncasters Josh Cox.
Grades are awarded primarily on fighting, but can also be awarded for knowledge
