[edit] Information

Sumo is the national sport of traditional Japan. However, the growing popularity of this type of wrestling is pushing the boundaries, attracting new wrestlers from all over the world: from Mongolian representatives who came to the Japanese professional sumo to amateur wrestlers from North America ... An inside look goes into the world of sumo to see a sport that is not like rest. We meet the highest ranked sumo wrestler, Mongolian Asashoryu. and delve into the hidden culture of this ancient sport. Sumo. More than a sport in Japan, it's a religion. Its history goes back 2000 years, with time-honored Shinto rituals and ceremonies originating from the ancient martial art called "Tegoi". Crashing into this tradition-bound world is Mongolian "outsider" Asashoryu. He's a rule-breaker. A rebel. And much to the chagrin of the sumo-crazy Japanese, he's their reigning champion. To add insult to injury, the Americans are even beefing up to join the sport. And now, for the first time in nearly 15 years, Japanese Grand Sumo is coming to ground zero of the outsider invasion. Hawaii - birthplace to Sumo's first foreign-born grand champion, Akebono. Asashoryu is not any Sumo wrestler. He's the "yokozuna" - or highest ranked. The Muhammad Ali of Sumo. With permission from Asashoryu to film his inner sanctum, we'll penetrate the hidden culture of this ancient sport. Produced, Written and Directed by Peter Yost ; A Pangloss Films Production for National Geographic Television
