Sumo Wrestling Pushes Kids Forward

BUFFALO, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Sumo wrestling is not just for fat Japanese men anymore.

That’s the push from Charles Bray, founder of SumoKids, a foundation which teaches the ancient Asian sport to school kids in Buffalo, New York.

SumoKids are taught the basics of the diaper-wearing dynamos, while getting bigger benefits, like dignity, respect, and discipline.

But watch your back, because, as Bray puts it, “Sumo sneaks up on you and changes your perspective.”

In his seven programs around Buffalo, Bray has seen the hard- hitting effects of Sumo firsthand.

Bray’s program throws its weight around tough and troubled teens, and he says, “I don’t care how tough they are or how many problems they have, Sumo makes them want to improve and learn. It makes them more happy and outgoing.”
