Losing weight, hip strengthening, pelvis position adjustment, back pain improvement –this isn’t just basic training method for sumo wrestlers but an excellent exercise and health method. In this video, Tetsuhiro Matsuda, the former sumo wrestler Ichinoya and a leading sumo coach, will teach you how to do it effectively.

Raising your feet high isn’t of the essence; what is important is to do what you do while checking your body’s condition through:

・Shifting your center of gravity, using the knee and hip joints
・Being aware of the pelvic floor muscles (aka inner muscles)
・Matching movement and breathing

These essential points in the Matsuda-style shiko are shown many times in in a step-by-step manner so that even beginners can do them without difficulty and bring their body in a fully connected state.

Create the “supple, injury-free body” that all top-level sumo wrestlers have!

Besides shiko, you can find in the video detailed explanations of other sumo exercises like koshiwari, teppo and matawari.

If you’re looking for an easy way to get fit and healthy or if you’re looking for a more traditional way to train, this old but new training video is for you!
