What is sumo morning practice?

The sumo stable is where the sumo wrestlers live, train, eat and sleep. A typical day at a sumo stable starts early in the morning. Training begins without eating breakfast. After warming up individually, they begin the two types of practice matches. One is “sanban geiko” (Two sumo wrestlers who are pretty equally matched.) the other, “moshi-ai geiko”(The winner of a practice match stays in the ring and chooses his next opponent).Training finishes up with a special stamina building exercise called “butsukari geiko”
