Aikido and Sumo

There has been some discussion recently on Aikiweb about using Sumo principles and exercises in Aikido.

I was wondering if anyone on this site who has personal expertise or training in Sumo would choose to comment on Sumo's availability outside of Japan, applicability to Aikido, similarities and differences between the arts, etc.

Is the overlap in practitioners limited to Japan in the past (and possibly present) or is there lots of Sumo training ongoing outside of Japan as well (in the US, for example)?

Thanks,
Rob
