Shintoism - Sumo Wrestling - Many ancient traditions have been preserved in sumo, such as the use of salt purification, from the days when sumo was used in the Shinto religion. Life as a rikishi is highly regimented, with rules laid down by the Sumo Association. Most sumo wrestlers are required to live in communal "sumo training stables" known in Japanese as heya where all aspects of their daily lives, from meals to their manner of dress, are dictated by strict tradition.
