:rotf:

Congrat' Rui : one week and a half that I had added these "ranks" and you are the first one to notice it :).

Komosubi is the 4th rank in the sumo hierarchy. Above are Sekiwake, Oseki and Yokozuna. Note that there is only one Yokozuna in this organization. I let you guess who is ours.

...And what rank is Juryo?

Guess I don't wanna know... :D

Actually, Juryo is not a rank in Sumo herarchy but the name of the second division. It's under the names referenced above so :P

I was missing some names and had to find something to put :). The same way rank below Juryo will be referenced as "Sekitori" that is normally the generic word to say "fighters".

Profesionnal Sumo on Wikipedia.org

Edit: these are the ranks I defined :
Code:

Sekitori    10
Juryo                100
Maegashira  500
Komosubi        1250
Sekiwake        2500
Ozeki      5000
Yokozuna        10000

So you also like Sumo, don't you Phil?.

I think they like martial arts a lot in France, isn't it?.

Well, I loved your idea, and the idea of becoming a Sumo fighter after so little effort :wink:

Actually I was looking for something where Karl could be the only one, and "God" was already taken :D

Beside this, yes I appreciate sumo.

France is a great country for Judo and has good karateka also. And Sumo is the prefered sports of our president. But the martial art aren't so loved I think.

Hmm, I'm just 136 posts away from becoming a Sekiwake :idea: .
That's neat loool.
Cheers

I say this since I knew a martial arts master that used to travel a lot to France to improve his skills in several martial arts: Kenjutsu, Batto Jutsu, Tambo Jutsu, Aikido,...
And from time to time I can see martial art demonstrations on Eurosport, taking place in France. Well, this is where I had a general idea it was practised a lot there. :D

... and Yes, Yokozuna is kilometers far from almost everybody in this forum, apart from the best ones.

I congratulate you again for this nice idea, and your polite way to distinguish Karl.

Well. France is closer to Spain than Japan I suppose :D

Ok. You refer to the meeting in Bercy each year. And this is a very good instance : this meeting is not meant as a sport contest, but as an entertainement ! This is like having live Jackie Chan show. I don't know if martial arts need that.

No, for sure not. :!: (Jackie Chan... :? Isn't he an actor?. It would be more like a circus, isn't it?)

I don't know what's the intention of this entertainment then (apart from the obvious economical side). It sometimes is a way to show the estethical part of martial arts, and some people then decide to test it.

My colleagues also did demonstration from time to time. It wasn't meant to win championships, or to improve their skills, or to try to find their inner harmony... :roll: of course not. It was a way to show other people that didn't know their disciplines. Then, more people attended the dojo.
Of course, there was the bad side, as some people went there with strange ideas. But as time passed, only people really interested in all what martial arts mean, kept on going to the dojo.

And yes, they were planning to go to Japan, but it was a little expensive... and it seems that it isn't as it used to be related to learning martial arts there.
