I know I may get mocked but I am not joking. I am not commenting on the fat build required to compete in sport Sumo, but rather on the essential skills that it fine tunes to an extreme degree. Im not saying Sumo will make anyone a great grappler either, but as a basic foundation, it doesnt get more pure than good old Sumo, which gets basically zero respect from what Ive seen. With sumo as a foundation, then wrestling followed by Jiu Jitsu, and youve got a pretty formidable skill set. Am I alone in recognizing the virtues of Sumo?
