No, I didn't. It is only for men.
Apparently, many years ago, when Nadam (Mongolian festivals) first began, a woman disguised herself as a man, entered a wrestling match and won against her male counterpart. She was discovered to be a woman and the men came up with a cunning plan to ensure this would never happen again. The wrestling costume was redesigned, so that the top half fully exposed the chest area whereas in the past, it did not and from that day, forward no woman has dared to enter the competition... Basically, Mongolian wrestlers are considered strong, skillful contestants in Asia and in the world.
I started practicing Sumo in 2002, when I participated in an amateur Sumo competition. I was inspired by Mongolian Sumo wrestlers who wowed Japanese sumotori with their unique skills and professionalism.
Judo is the primary sport that I practice; therefore, I would say it is Judo.
Basically, Judo and Sumo wrestling techniques are pretty much the same, but the rules are different.
I like them both.
Because it is a popular sport in the world.
Once you master the technique and tricks there are no particular features of sumo make it inappropriate to women.
Weight plays an important role in Sumo. I think besides heavy weight and sheer power, Sumo wrestlers should be talented and skillful.
They eat certain food to gain weight.
I would pick Judo.
I never thought about it.
In my spare time, I like playing basketball.
Physically good shape, world wide fame and a lot of friends.
Jogging in the morning. Attending technique class
You have to master the technique how to land when you are thrown down. There is nothing to be afraid of.
My fans and my friends might answer that question better than I do.
If you like wrestling and talented nothing is gonna stop you. So, go for it. I don't know if I want my daughter to become a wrestler.
I do practice with male wrestlers in a daily basis. But I don't wrestle with them.
They treat me like an ordinary woman.
No, there is no protection for that. I wish there was.
Lots of things have changed over the years.
I don't think so; maybe it's a little bit intimidating.
No, I don't think so.
Yes, it is acceptable and natural.
I have never fought on the street. But I can defend myself if someone attacks me.
Yes, I speak Russian a little bit.
