Anyone here following Sumo?

January Banzuke is out and the basho is just around the corner, so there should be some discussion possible about it.
>>
Is sumo wrestling basically fat people doing Judo and pushing each other?

...kinda
There's no groundwork, and the rules for winning involve ring-out, and having the opponent touch the ground with anything but their feet.

Have any sumo guys gone heavyweight MMA with any degree of success? Is sumo useful in the streets?
>>
>>863292
I liked the few shows I saw for it on eurosports but I have no idea where to go to follow the sport more regulary or watch livestreams.
>>

I follow these two channels with regular upload (when there are tournaments - basho)

https://www.youtube.com/user/Kintamayama
^ Great daily recap, shows match highlights and slowmotions, gives necessary information prior to match such as Rank, current match Win/Lose in a tourney and match outcomes between the rikishi (wrestlers). Following this channel made me love sumo as it gives a more western feel to it, a faster, quicker, more attention grabbing sumo without many of the unnecessary dull traditions. although later I came to like tradition stuff, which is actually pretty interesting.

The second channel is
https://www.youtube.com/user/JasonsinJapan
^ Has commentary over the matches and mainly shows the biggest/most interesting matches of the day. Shows whole ceremonial process before the match and comments on what's happening and explains some stuff. Sometimes it's fluff and just sheer speculation on what's happening, might happen, etc. but it's really great if you just want to take an hour of your day, listen to some guy talk about sumo and chill.

This is american sumo and it's fake and for show, just like regular wrestling.

I guess that's what happens when you export a sport to USA, it becomes stupid. Just look at Football.
>>
I've made a Sumo thread for the last 3 bashos and they've gone pretty well, not a huge amount of posting but it's good fun

Was planning to make the Hatsu thread tonight or tomorrow when I had time, unless someone else wants to do it. I'll link it in here when I do so just so everyone can find it.
>>
Gone ahead and posted the Hatsu 2016 thread, hope you guys are ready for another great year >>865072
