It is my pleasure to serve as the new Secretary General of the
International Sumo Federation.
I wish to work with all sumo fans from around the world to promote the
traditional Japanese sport of Sumo to an international sport for everyone
around the globe to enjoy.
Additionally, I shall work for IFS to become a stable and strong
organization so that it will join the Olympic Games as an official
sport in the near future. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
It's a 1,500 years old Japanese martial art, steeped in the Shinto religion.
It's a fast and exciting sport with simple,easy to understand rules.
It's part of the World Games, and is on track for inclusion in the Olympics.
At last count, 84 nations have joined The International Sumo Federation, so it has evolved far beyond its Japanese origins.
