Found a documentary on YouTube about the daily life of the coach and members of Kaiyo High School Sumo Club in Niigata. Kaiyo High School is one of the traditional powerhouses in high school sumo, and are 8-time national champions.

The 4-part documentary focuses on the club's coach, Tomi Tetsuya, and his wife, as they prepare the club members for the Kanazawa Tournament.in May of this year.

The Kaiyo high sumo club had developed gottsan retort curry, to help the club survive. The club at the moment has only 6 members, it used to be about 10, who consumed 30kg of rice in 2 days. The costs per student are much higher at this special fishery prefectural high school, as a public school the budget is limited. A few years ago, when the school had not enough students, there were moves to have it absorbed into other schools. The staff made nationwide PR efforts, appealing with the unique education. Now nearly half of the students come from other prefectures, they are integrated in community activities and get support from the Itoigawa locals. The sumo club members and OBs take part in local matsuri and events, making chanko and teaching sumo to the kids.

Gottsan curry was developed last year by 3rd years Takeoka (now Oguruma-beya), Fukasawa (Naruto) and Kurita (now at Waseda university) - that kind of fund raising and that they were allowed to pose on the package is unique for a high school sports club - maybe only allowed for the sumo club. Fukasawa had won the Grand Prix at the Itoigawa business plan contest with the project "Feel Itoigawa with chanko". The 3 developed the product in the school's aquatic resource department nutrition science course.

The sumo club in the past had developed the product "garlic miso". The arrangement then was vague, this time they had it fixed that 3% of sales would go to the sumo club. Marketing is done by the local firm Nosui shoten Co., ltd http://nousui-syouten.shop-pro.jp/?pid=151690461, established jointly by the city administration, the school and OBs - Nosui is part of the old name of the school. The company president till 2 years ago was teacher in the nutrition science course.
