Sumo is a type of wrestling and the players participating in this Sumo game are called as wrestlers.
The game is played either indoor or outdoor. The two wrestlers take up the game of wrestling in a circular ring, which is called dohyo. The game comes to an end when one of the wrestlers forces the other wrestler to touch the ground by any part of the body other than the feet.
Sumo is considered to be a professional game that might close within seconds of commencing. It is not a hard and fast rule that the game should close quickly. Some games, depending upon the ability of the wrestlers might take more time. Sumo is not just a competitive sport, where the trial of strength of the wrestler is tested in the dohyo or the circular ring. In Japan, the sport is associated with a specific ritual and has been in existence from a very long period. The wrestlers in Sumo are called rikishis.
