If you are thinking Sumo Suit hire, think again! Sumo Experience provides a Japanese themed party and team building service. Your kimono-clad "Gyoji" will lead the ceremonials, organise the fun and referee the competitions (with tongue firmly in cheek).

With 10 years and over 500 Sumo Wrestling parties and events behind him, Martin Day offers a unique Sumo wresting party experience unlike anything else to be found in the UK - If you've heard sumo suits, you've heard of sumo hire. But if you've heard of sumo parties, then it will be Sumo Experience that you've heard about.

Highly recommend Martin for any aged kids party boy or girls! He entertained x 14, 11 year girls for 2 hours and they have declared it to be the best party ever! Really well organised great fun and loads of laughs for parents and older brothers and sisters too! (who despite being very cool teenagers were desperate to get in on the act!) Something completely unique for my little girl to remember forever!

We hired Martin and his Sumo Experience for my son's 10th birthday. The whole experience was expertly organised. Martin fully engages with all the children, giving them all time to fully enjoy the authentic Sumo. My son and his friends, both boys and girls, thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I totally recommend Martin for a memorable party with a difference.

My son just had his 10th party with Martin from Sumo experience, it was absolutely fantastic. Martin arrives and takes over with all the kids and you sit and watch for 90 minutes, no stress . Brilliant fun and different party.

Themed & Hosted Corporate Team Building - Sumo Wrestling Suits

I should say that I don't hire out the sumo fat suits on their own, but instead provide a Japanese themed party and team building service. I would attend as the kimono-clad "Gyoji" to lead the ceremonials, organise the fun and referee the competitions. You will need a venue that will need to accommodate at least 22ft x 22ft of clear space for safe sumo. Alternatively, there is nothing better sumo in the summer sunshine if you have an outdoor grassy space or decking available. The sumo part of your event would last between 60 and 90 minutes depending on numbers participating and how long will be enough for you.If everyone is to participate then numbers between 10 and 20 work best. I will need access to your venue 30 minutes beforehand to set up and the same at the end to pack up.

Themed & Hosted Sumo Wrestling Event

I should say up front that I don't hire out the sumo fat suits on their own, but instead provide a Japanese themed party and team building service. I would attend as the kimono-clad "Gyoji" to lead the ceremonials, organise the fun and referee the competitions (with tongue firmly in cheek). You will need a venue that will need to accommodate at least 22ft x 22ft of clear space for safe sumo. Alternatively, there is nothing better sumo in the summer sunshine if you have an outdoor grassy space or decking available (although you may want to have an indoor alternative on standby in case of bad weather). The sumo part of your event would last between 60 and 90 minutes depending on numbers participating and how long will be enough for you.

Sumo Wrestling Suit - Children's Party

I should say upfront that I don't hire out the sumo fat suits on their own but instead provide a Japanese themed party service. I would attend as the kimono-clad "Gyoji" to lead the ceremonials, organise the fun and referee the competitions (with tongue firmly in cheek). I have done hundreds of parties for ages 7 and above. I have found that numbers between 10 and 14 work well for a sumo party as too many more give too long a wait for a go and fewer mean the party won't be as buoyant. You would need to hire a local hall (I've found scout huts can be the cheapest) as I need at least 22ft x 22ft for safe sumo. Alternatively, if your back garden is suitable there is nothing better than sumo in the summer sunshine (although some of my customers also get a hall on standby in case of bad weather). The sumo part of the party would last about 90 minutes so a two-hour party would allow you time to feed them and "do the cake" afterward.

Sumo Wresting 'Stall' - For Fun Days & Fun Fairs

Because only two people can fight at a time there is a comparatively slow 'load' time. This means that Sumo will not be a money spinner, but instead needs to be regarded as an attraction and it does draw a crowd. I would lead the contestants through the ceremonials of salt throwing and stamping. Then each fight would be decided on a best-of-three bouts basis. I would run a winner-stays-on system with a champion retiring after his second victory. I'm afraid that I limit myself to two hours as it is back-breaking work helping the fallen to their feet! So you can see you should expect to make a loss on this attraction. I need at least 22ft x 22ft for safe sumo and, as I work alone, you would need to supply a volunteer to take the money and manage the queue. If you needed to move activities inside, in the event of wet weather, I would still need the same amount of space. I would need about 30 minutes to set up and so would require access with my car to unload and pack up.

FAQ
  • How much space do I need for sumo?
    You will need 22ft x 22ft (6.7m x 6.7m) of clear grassy space if outside (tarmac or concrete is not suitable. The same space is needed inside - so you need to be thinking village hall, church hall size. Very few people will have one room that is this big in their house.
  • Why isn't your deposit refundable?
    It is simply a question of commitment - We don't intend to keep your deposit. If you need to cancel then you can reuse your deposit to re-book on another day. But if your decide against Sumo after booking your should know that your deposit is non refundable.
  • Do you hire sumo suits?
    No. This is a common question because suit hire is the predominant model in the entertainment industry. Sumo Experience provides a themed, managed and hosted serviced. We don't hire our suits and mats out on their own.
  • Only 2 people can fight at a time, what does everyone else do?
    For parties and team building events your 'Gyoji' organises the participants into teams with each combatant wearing his/her colour coded team bandanna. Everyone is encouraged to cheer their team on, so everyone has investment in each fight. When there are too many people for everyone to have a go (and there will be some who would rather watch their friends 'make fools of themselves'), spectating is as much entertainment as the wrestling is fun. For children's events we have found that numbers need to be between 10 and 14 as children demand maximum participation!
