Sumo January Tournament

This's now the second tournament we've attended and this time Caleb was alot more interested and even started to copy their leg lifting and body slapping ceremony!
It is very useful to have the English commentary radio and hear about the history between each pair of fighters that meets. During a tournament they battle for 15days straight, each day the bouts start at 10am and finish at 6pm, so in many ways it is a long drawn out event. Although on one day each fighter will only have one fight and that is a once only attempt to force their opponent to touch the ground (with any other part of their body other than their feet) or to step outside the rope ring. Generally it is over in 10 seconds!
