Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat, two of Red Bull’s F1 drivers recently visited the Miyagino stable to see if they had what it takes to hang with some of gym’s best fighters.
The two fighters got up bright and early and made their way to the Miyagino Beya, one of Tokyo’s top Sumo stables, where they stepped into the Dohyo with some of the stable’s top fighters. In Japan sumo wrestlers are members of a sumo-beya, where the wrestlers train and live. After being introduced to the wrestlers that make up the Miyagino stable, Daniel and Dany were first given a demonstration of the wrestlers’ training routine, a 30-45 minute workout that involves some serious stretching, a fair degree of room-shaking shouting and then some full on, body-slapping wrestling action.
As the video shows, the result of their matches against the stable’s top fighters went as expected.
