Rules to play Sumo Wrestling
There are six divisions in sumo makuuchi maximum 42 wrestlers, j?ry fixed at 28 wrestlers, makushita fixed at 120 wrestlers, sandanme fixed at 200 wrestlers, jonidan approximately 185 wrestlers, and jonokuchi approximately 40 wrestlers. Wrestlers enter sumo in the lowest jonokuchi division and, ability permitting, work their way up to the top division. A broad demarcation in the sumo world can be seen between the wrestlers in the top two divisions known as sekitori and those in the four lower divisions, known commonly by the more generic term rikishi. These differences in compensation, privileges and status are enumerated here.
