    It all depends on how things play out. I still need to get a mawashi, but believe me, no matter what, I will not give up

    I’ve been actually practicing, mostly the basics, and thing I can do alone, cause the only group that actually gets together and train is pretty much close to 150 miles away. Which is depressing when you don’t have a vehicle, and it would take 2 days to to go there and back. but I’m planning on going to the New Orleans open when that rolls around.

    Practicing mostly, no money, or means of transportation to meet up with the only group that practice sumo in the whole state of Florida, or to go to the tournaments that are out of state. It’s actually kinda depressing. My goal is to spend the year training, and go to the New Orleans open in March.

    Interesting. Personally I liked sumo more than football. I tend to lean more towards combat sports.

    I’ve literally just joined the forum. I’ve always wanted to do sumo, and a friend told me about when he first moved to Japan, he was able to get a visa that allowed him to stay because he was learning a fighting style there, and I was hoping sumo would’ve been one of those. And personally it’s not even about going pro anymore, more I’d want to be able to hold my own. I made the original post in order to get some answers, abd it just became this. And if people thought it was a waste of time, why even comment? And also I am setting everything up so I can start practicing this year. I hope to prove some the people on here wrong. And I want a chance to earn the respect of a former Yokozuna. Even if I can’t be pro, I can still train to be as strong as them.

    I’m doing it regardless. I’ll admit there is a bit of validation, but it’s mostly for myself, to prove that I can do it, and if I get recognition for this, I’ll be happy. But my goal is to at least reach a level comparable to yokozuna. And to maybe one day meet the rikishi that inspired me to want to do sumo in the first place

    I’m always trying to keep that mindset. Even if I go pro, I still want to be the best I can. One of my goals would to be able to hold my own against a pro. It’s kinda disconcerting when people make it sound like it’s pointless, or doesn’t have as much respect as pro. A lot of it is me psyching myself out too. Which usually happens if there’s something I’m getting into. But it can also be a good motivator. Thanx

    I’m enjoying the discussion for the most part. I’ve always admired the sport, but seldom get to talk about it, so it’s nice to have a discussion. And I don’t know how to address the rest of your comment without coming off as braggy, or egotistical. I just want to do my best, and have fun, and if I gain notoriety, I’ll be happy. Even better if I ever had a chance to have a pro fight.

    I’ve always wanted to do it. I want to learn different fighting styles. But sumo was a sport that I promised myself I’d do if I had the chance. And it has to have some kind of popularity if it’s being brought up for discussion in the olympics. And it’s more I’d want to be at the same level as a Yokozuna, regardless if I went pro

    I was asking an opinion. That was in response to the other guy. I’m still new to the community itself. I’ve been mostly studying the sport. I joined the forum to meet people, and ask questions.

    That’s why I said settle for amateur. But even if I can’t go pro, I’m gonna train like one. I’ll push myself to be at the same level as a Yokozuna. Also if they aren’t on the same level, is amateur even worth it then in your eyes?

    When it came to amateur sumo, I felt like it would be looked down on by the pros. Like why would someone who lives sumo 24/7 ever respect, or take a amateur seriously? Or that an amateur champion would never be on the same level as a Yokozuna. I know that’s more than likely wrong, and I’m just letting nerves get the best of me. And personally I want to prove my notions wrong, and prove to myself that an amateur wrestler (because I don’t know if rikishi is strictly used for pro) can take on and beat a yokozuna. I’m pretty sure it’s all fear, and nerves talking. But I want to earn the respect of the pros, and I felt the only way that was possible was to be a pro.

    Out of curiosity, are monikers a thing in amateur sumo, or is that strictly a pro sumo thing
