You will learn sumo fundamentals, including stretches, warm-ups, rituals, rules, and effective techniques. Many of our athletes compete and succeed on the national and international levels. Others come to practice, just for a good workout and to improve their health.

Regular participants range in age from kids to seniors, both men and women, of all skill levels. Feel free to try a class, at your convenience.
