Ok, I know you have an idea of what sumo is but the very large men wearing very little clothing are a far cry from what you're used to seeing when you come to Taekwon-do, right? And that's not the sort of opponent you imagine your child facing, right?
Also, this is a Taekwon-do school, what does Sumo have to do with our training?
Well, it's offered at the Immortal Dragon Martial Arts 2nd Annual Winter Tournament on March 3rd, and it's a lot of fun. Strategically the kids learn easy grappling and sweeping, and they have to pay attention to their opponent and what he or she is doing.
You know, instead of talking about it, let me show you video from the Presidents Day Mini-camp.
