I swear I saw a sumo training video somewhere where a rikishi doing the teppo exercises is also tapping the wooden post with their forehead. But not like full-on or hard bumps. Just light taps here and there. Perhaps the rikishi that I saw doing this was just already at his limit and frustrated and those forehead taps to the wooden post were incidental. I assumed incorrectly that it was SOP for that type of exercise. When I saw that, I was like "Whoah! This sumo wrestlers don't mess around!"

 

 

OMG! See! See! I told you they do it from time to time!
