Sumo is a competitive contact sport where a wrestler (rikishi) attempts to force one another out of a circular ring (dohyo) or to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet. The sport originated in ancient Greece and now is famus in Japan. The Japanese consider sumo a gendai bud? (a modern Japanese martial art), because the sport has a history spanning from the ancient Greek classic centuries. The sumo tradition is very ancient, and even today the sport includes many ritual elements, such as the use of salt for purification, from the days sumo was used in the Shinto religion. Life as a rikishi is highly regimented, with rules laid down by the Sumo Association. Professional sumo wrestlers are required to live in communal "sumo training stables" known in Japanese as heya where all aspects of their daily lives-from meals to their manner of dress-are dictated by strict tradition.
