** We have run over 1,500 sumo practices in Los Angeles for over 24 years (since 1998), and the fee has been only $10 for all 24 years. During this time, practice fees were never enough to cover dojo rental costs, and our coaches (including YAMA, for the past 10 years) have volunteered their time. After 24 years, we’ve finally raised the fee by $5, to try to cover the dojo rental fees. Thank you for understanding.
