About this Episode

Just HOW does a person become a professional sumo wrestler? Especially, if you can't show up on the doorstep of a sumo stable in Japan, how do you train in sumo? You participate in international sumo and martial arts! That's what we discuss today. From judo to ju-jitzu and sumo, what's the purpose of international sumo? We talk to two teachers and athletes - Derrick Garza of Dark Clan Fight Lab and Justin Kizzart of Dark Circle Sumo.
