I know the origins of sumo are slightly older than the 1600's...but I
do not know when the rules were codefied...if a (demi)period demo
could be had at Pennsic...I would enjoy it...and participate, perhaps...
Not all of the participants at the school I lived near were of
"supposedly" traditional sumo perportions...all makes, sizes, and
models of wrestler were covered... (or uncovered, as it were...)
The spirit was fierce, and the enthusiasm of the sumo-tori, as well as
the crowd watching were grand!!!
Perhaps a not weapon, martial convention might be adopted within the
SCA...dare we hope?
