Only Official Sumo Ring Outside Japan

Recommended Posts

Probably the only one that is clay AND raised AND permanent.

There were a couple of permanent clay rings in the Czech Republic that I saw in 2005. They had been built by Jaroslav Poriz and his family. One was in the bowels of an old soccer stadium in Prague, and was reminiscent of a training area at a heya, although a bit smaller. The other was adjoined to the restaurant of the Hotel Sumo in Jilemnice, run by Mr Poriz snr. It could be used for training, but had mirrors and walls rather close, so wasn't as safe to throw adult opponents in matches.
