Last Sumo photo, maybe.

I thought I was done with Sumo for awhile when the opportunity came up to photograph a different type of Sumo wrestling. It is called Sumo Okinawense. Each participant wears a red or white cloth belt. The grab each others belt and do not let go as each wrestles to get the back of their opponent on the ground. It made for some good faces and good photos.
Check them out.

Los Luchadores de Sumo Sudamericano
More images of the Sumo Amateur Argentino group. This past Saturday, August 29th, they hosted a fundraising demonstration. The upcoming 14º Torneo Sudamericano de Sumo will be held October 17th in Buenos Aires.
I understand they are always looking for new converts and especially women. There are currently two women on the team, but they need a minimum of three to compete. Come on, give them a call!
And check out the new batch of photos (scroll down on the page to see the new additions.)

Sumo Amateur Argentino is a group of Argentines gathering each Saturday to practice and perfect the art of sumo wrestling. It is not something you’d immediately call to mind when you think of traveling to Argentina. In the land of beef, tango, gauchos and glaciers there is also a dedication to a sport originating in Japan.
The upcoming 14º Torneo Sudamericano de Sumo (October 17, 2009) will be again a showcase for sumo in South America with South American sumo powerhouses such as Paraguay and Brasil expected to attend.
