The rules for Sumo are simple and the winner is of a bout is the one who first drives his(/her) opponent out of the dohyo (straw bales that form the ring) or forces him(/her) to touch part of his body other than the soles of his feet to the ground. The match is decided in a matter of seconds. A good Sumo wrestler respects their opponent, and whether victorious or defeated, they leave the dohyo with honor for a bout well-played. Determination of the winner is clear and easy for the spectators to follow. However, with 88 acknowledged moves including throwing, twisting, and bending techniques, one never knows what will be employed to succeed.
