The most interesting part to me is learning about sumo and the cultural value.
Just being able to step in the ring wearing a mawashi is great. Learning about the basic moves and the history is also very interesting.
I did the in person sumo training and felt that it was well worth the fee. I thought that the whole experience was both interesting and valuable.
