Re: Aikido and Sumo

I have had the occasion to watch a lot of Sumo a few years ago as I had a subscription to NHK channel. It was amazing for me to see the similarities between Sumo and the group of throws we have in aikido under Kokyu Nage. During my Judo days, we used to do Sumo competitions once a month as a training tool. It was fun.
