Is holding and body slamming legal in sumo wrestling?
- 1 decade agoBest Answer
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.
