Life as a sumo wrestler is one ofdisciplineandtradition.
From their attire to their calorie-rich meals, the sport of sumo wrestling originated in Japan over 2,000 years ago as a form of entertainment. Fighting to overtake their father's grasp, the two young sons attempt to grab the entire plate of food. For them, it is a way to be more like their father. For their father, it is 3,500 out of 7,000 calories he needs to consume in one day to maintain a competitive physique. Meals mainly consist of chanko-nabe, a dish of vegetables, and meat cooked in dashi broth. Although interfering with their father's work, it is true that the passion to pursue the sumo profession typically starts young.
