Seattle Sumo Club

Respect | Appreciation | Dedication

Seattle Sumo Club is an organization dedicated to providing enthusiasts and competitors alike an opportunity to practice sumo skills. Anyone and everyone interested in sumo is welcome!

As a long standing symbol of Japanese tradition, sumo can come across as exclusive to many without proper exposure. The question we get most from people learning about sumo for the first time is a variation of “Don’t you have to be big to do that?” In short: No!

As far as we’re concerned, there’s no such thing as a wrong body or wrong person for sumo. If you want to do it, then don’t be deterred. Unlike Grand Sumo, sumo in the U.S. operates by international/amateur standards. This means weight classes.

Sumo is about refinement of the spirit, body and mind. There’s no bad time to start and no experience required. We’re all about working hard and having fun. Why not give it a try?

We are currently meeting Sundays, 12:30PM to 1:30PM at Quantum Martial Arts in Seattle. If you’re interested in learning more about Sumo history and our club then please reach out to us at our Instagram:
