You don’t have to fly to Japan to experience the excitement and fun of this 1500 year old sport!  Sumo + Sushi gives you the opportunity to learn about the culture of Sumo from legendary sumo wrestler Konishiki, the first non-Japanese-born wrestler to reach ōzeki, the second-highest possible rank in the sport.

Konishiki will walk you through the history and rules of sumo, followed by live matches between 6 sumo wrestlers!

Sumo + Sushi will be in Los Angeles for one weekend only in 2023 at The Barker Hangar. We offer multiple shows per day, December 1-3.

This event is strictly ages 21+. Valid ID is required. There are no refunds or exchanges - all sales are final. Ticket transfers are allowed through the Universe system. Doors open 1 Hour prior to event time. Groups wishing to sit together should arrive together and must purchase the same ticket type.
