American amateur new to sumo and the forum

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm an American who got really into sumo during the pandemic and decided to attempt amateur sumo.

I'm currently 37, 6'and about 270 lbs so just sneak into heavyweights which is where I want to be. I think it's a shame we have weight classes but that's the rules. 

Yesterday I hit a new high in shiko doing 6 sets of 15 reps. So I have a way to go. 

I have experience as a lineman in American football and limited martial arts training. I am attempting to learn more grappling skills. 

I sometimes make funny sumo videos and by sometimes I mean after one tournament. 

I might do some for this tournament as well but have been busy exercising.
