Is holding and body slamming legal in sumo wrestling?

    The way Sumo is practiced is, The wrestlers lock arms then push at each other until one of them steps out of the(small) ring, I think it's considered a foul if you let go.

    Holding is the whole point.

    Slamming is legal, if you could slam your opponent.

    Watch some videos of asashoryu. I've even seen him use a couple aikido techniques (such as tegatana), though probably not meant to be that.
