Sumo History

As a club, we are dedicated to sharing what we’ve learned about sumo history with those who want to learn more.

On our Instagram page, we regularly share stories about the rikishi which have defined the sport since before the last century. All of our stories are told from stable to stable, and you can view them anytime via our page’s highlights.

For those looking to watch older footage of sumo, we’ve provided commentary tracks for official tournament coverage found on the Japan Sumo Association’s official YouTube channel.

Here is the commentary track for the first day of the 1964 Spring tournament.

In order to help new audiences become familiar with older wrestlers, we’ve also created preview slides you can reference during your viewing.
