Sumo. Mystical Japanese sport. Phenomenally strong naked men. But how strong? And why naked? And how do they view the world?
This book is, quite simply, the first text to introduce sumo through the eyes of the wrestlers themselves. From the novices performing basic chores for their superiors to the grand champions who seemingly have it all, everyone has a story to tell. Who are these unique sumo warriors? Read on and find out with help from:
A lower-division novice, with no official salary, sometimes becoming homesick
The lightweight who gets beaten up every day in training, despite being related to the King of Tonga
The 67th grand champion, who offers his exclusive thoughts on the most famous sumo match ever
The first foreigner ever to become a sumo coach
You won't get another insight like this. Check it out now!
