Hey there, new brazilian fan.

Greetings sumo fans throughout the world, my name is João Pedro and im from Rio de Janeiro, im 20 years old, i'm a 4° generation japanese descendant,  my first contact with sumo was about 4 years ago when i watched the documentary about Kyokutaisei on a Brazilian martial arts channel, i was shocked when i first saw how the sumo world works, it's so grueling and i've never seen or been through nothing like that in any martial art, after the documentary i watched some matches or highlights on youtube but it kind of fade away in my life since i've always been a martial arts practitioner and always been a fan of boxing so i naturally forgot about it with time, then december last year i opened youtube's front page and there was a sumo highlight video about a sumotori who had passed away and it was Chiyonofuji, i was amazed by his muscles and the way he fought, i instantly went researching about sumo and i spent the whole night reading about sumo, watching documentaries and the basho of the latest years, since then i've been a huge fan and sumo is becoming part of my daily life especially because of the Hatsu basho, it was my first "live" tournament, everyday i woke up anxious to watch the new Kintamayama highlight of the matches of the day, it has been one of the most exciting events i have seen, the energy is just different and unique, nothing compares to it, i look forward to be a member of this forum and continue learning about this beautiful tradition.

Cheers!!!

Welcome! I thought I could have been the youngest, but we're the same age. Looks like Kisenosato will soon be laughing with his peers in the "yokozuna club".

I love the photograph. You know the Mongolians are joking, "A Japanese yokozuna, yeah right."

Coé xará!

Também sou brasileiro e também chamo Jão (só que de São Paulo mano, rsrsrs)...

Assistia sumô na nhk há uns anos atrás mas depois de perder o pacote que tinha o canal fiquei anos sem acompanhar. Em 2016 achei por acaso o Kintamayama no tubs e desde então ando viciado.

Duro de achar quem acompanhe aqui no Brasil né? 

Abraço bicho.

Desculpa a demora pela resposta, tinha esquecido da senha da conta hahahaha

Eu vi o documentario do kyokutaisei no canal combate, parando pra pensar agora, é incrivel o sumo ter chegado numa plataforma dessa no brasil.

Esse ano tudo que fiz foi estudar sumo, fui desbravando adentro nesse universo e agora to viciado, minha vida agora virou sobrevivencia de 2 em 2 meses pra assistir os basho hahahaha

Me senti bem vendo mais brasileiros no forum, grande abraço.

Welcome new member!  The "veterans" in this group are an invaluable source of sumo (and other ) info.  And maybe you're joining at the second coming of Kaisei!
