The demand for the fat man sport by Americas youth has increased so much recently that Sumo wrestling camps are popping up around the U.S., including the SumoKids Sumo Wrestling Clinic, which is to take place Aug. 16 in Buffalo, New York.
The clinic will teach up to 100 aspiring diaper-wearing grapplers the basic disciplines of the sport as well as the culture behind it.
Although Sumo wrestling is associated with pudgy fat men, Sumo camp organizer Paul McAfee expects to see every type of kid at the clinic from small and scrawny to morbidly obese.
He admits the bigger kids will have an advantage though.
In his words, Nine out of 10 times when theres a big kid against a small kid in the ring, the big kids going to win.
