About the Movie
18 years old Takuya gives in to his father’s wishes and enrolls in a sumo school even though he prefers judo. Takuya swaps his trendy clothes for the traditional Japanese kimono and moves to Tokyo. His father has a warning for him as he leaves: Do you realize there is no place for you if you come back?
True day in the life of a Sumo Wrestler
This engaging look into the life of a young judo athlete going into Sumo..the training, pressures and education that he goes through. It's a fascinating peek into the sport and culture. There is no narrative other than the conversations the characters have that the filmmaker captures. Truly a fly-on-the-wall perspective. Anyone who is curious about the legacy and sport of Sumo will love this.
A great documentary about a not so well-known sport
A great look at sumo wrestling. I didn't know anything about it and really enjoyed it.
