Fight like a Japanese Sumo wrestler
Keen to get a taste of how Japanese Sumo wrestlers compete with each other on the arena? Or learn how they manage to stand ground despite their heavy size? Head to Space 2015, the annual cultural festival of Sardar Patel College of Engineering and Sardar Patel Institute of Technology at Andheri.
Participants at the Sumo Mania 2014
The festival, starting from February 27, will include a special Sumo wrestling event, called Sumo Mania, where participants will be given a chance to compete with each other after donning special Sumo wrestling suits. These suits come with special foam protection to give participants the shape and feel of Sumo wrestlers.
The game follows the same rules as in the original Sumo wrestling format. Here, each wrestler attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring or to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet. Each game will consist of three rounds, and in each round, the sumo either tries to throw his opponent out of the ring or make him fall on the ground.
Sumo Mania is open to all across ages and will take place over three days at the festival. So, to fulfil your dream of fighting like sumo wrestlers, and to attend various other cultural events, head to Space 2015.

At: Sardar Patel College of Engineering and Sardar Patel Institute of Technology, Munshi Nagar, near Azad Nagar Metro Station, Andheri (W).
