The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Technique in Sumo

When we think of Sumo, we tend to think of two huge Japanese guys crashing into each other and one of them eventually pushing the other one out of the ring. There is actually quite a bit of technique involved in Sumo.

In the video clip below, we see a caucasian sumo wrestler who is smaller than his opponents demonstrating quite a bit of technique to win from the underdog position.
