  • - Also, Yama is the heaviest Japanese human being

  • in recorded history.

  • (rhythmic drumming)

  • (peaceful flute music)

  • (upbeat jazz music)

  • - I wrestled through high school.

  • I placed sixth in my division.

  • - If another man hop up against another man

  • and the flesh press, and the other man go down,

  • that man who goes down is not a man.

  • being world champions.

  • It's just another test of my skills.

  • - We're gonna go over the basics of sumo.

  • We have a very, very special Japanese university champion.

  • This guy is undersized, but he will teach you

  • all you need to know to beat a much bigger opponent.

  • Let's welcome Takeshi!

  • (applause)

  • So the mawashi is basically the loincloth you wear in sumo.

  • You can see this is one long piece of fabric

  • and it does a double knot in the back and it's secure.

  • It shouldn't fall off.

  • He's gonna show you the basic leg lift, shiko.

  • (dramatic rock music)

  • So you're just relaxed and you lift the leg up slowly

  • and bring it back down slowly.

  • You're not stompin' really intensely.

  • Watch slowly how he moves.

  • He's gonna slide the feet.

  • It's like two railroad tracks, straight line.

  • - Watch me!

  • - Okay.

  • - What you know about it, son?

  • - And let's do butsukari, just hitting practice.

  • You wanna triangulate it so your hands

  • and your head all hit together.

  • (grunts)

  • (hard rock music)

  • The heaviest Japanese human being

  • in recorded history, at 600 pounds, Yama!

  • Here he comes!

  • - Oh, baby!

  • - [Andrew] Let's hear it for Yama!

  • (applause)

  • - I'm like the size of his arm.

  • (shouting drowned out by music)

  • I literally tried so hard, like incredibly hard.

  • - I'm gonna try my best.

  • I'm not intimidated.

  • - Go!

  • (yells)

  • (speaking drowned out by music)

  • - Thought I had him for a second

  • and then I second-guessed myself.

  • - We're gonna bring out, guys,

  • the four-time world sumo champion Byamba!

  • (applause)

  • - Where Yama at, huh?

  • I'm just tryin' not to fart in the ring.

  • - Go!

  • (grunts)

  • (shouting drowned out by music)

  • - I successfully didn't fart in my pants,

  • but I totally shit in my pants.

  • - Think I have the edge for this match.

  • - Go!

  • (yells)

  • - Feel really accomplished and I think

  • my parents would be proud of me.

  • - I've got a knack for this stuff.

  • - Go!

  • (grunts)

  • - I'm still trying to let the birds

  • stop flying around. (chirping of birds)

  • (suspenseful electronic music)

  • - I'm entering the ring against a multi-time world champion

  • and I hope to prove myself honorable in the ring of sumo.

  • - Go!

  • (grunt)

  • (yells)

  • Will beats the world champion!

  • - I don't know what to say.

  • I don't know if that was a fair match.

  • I don't think I got all of Yama,

  • but I will take it nonetheless.

  • He was an honorable opponent.

  • (upbeat electronic music)

  • - I'm exhausted and I feel like I barely did anything.

  • - That was one of the best experiences of my life,

  • once in a lifetime, and maybe I'll compete

  • in the US Sumo Open, you know?

  • Represent you guys.

  • - I think it was a fluke.

  • I don't know why I lost, honestly.

  • - I just hope that I have earned myself

  • honor and respect in the sumo ring

  • and I honorably thank Byamba, Yama, and Takeshi

  • for the opportunity to wrestle.

  • - Most importantly that I think

  • everyone learned something about the culture,

  • the respect, the techniques, and you can carry

  • what you learned today into other aspects

  • of your lives.

  • - [All] Arigato gozaimashita!

  • (applause)

  • (upbeat jazz music)

- Also, Yama is the heaviest Japanese human being
