Okay, let’s go. [LAUGH] My name
is Byamba I am four time world
sumo champion. Every day I eat lots
of healthy food to stay strong. [SOUND]. [LAUGH] [SOUND] [MUSIC] In professional sumo,
after the practice we eat rice and you know,
like, before I have some fish but the main dish
is, like, Chankonabe. There are a lot of
vegetables, onion, green onion, ginger,
mushrooms, eggs, lot of meats, fish too. The meat has a lot
of calories, right? Right? So that means I think
we eat a lot so that means more than
10,000 calories. If you wanna be a Sumo
wrestler, there has to, trying to hard to like,
practice, you know? And then after that, body’s gonna be tired,
right? And then they has
to eat healthy and taking a lot of protein. So Chankonabe’s
the right things to eat. If they’re just
practicing a little bit and they eating junk
food, I mean you know, there’s no balance
on the body so. Chanko makes me stronger. [LAUGH] I used to make
the Chankonabe every day in Japan for five years. I make Chanko 1,800 to
2,000 times in my life. I was born in
Mongolia and then when I was six,
then I moved in Japan for a long I started doing
professional sumo. When I was 16, from
Japan, the grand champion in all of Corneil was
Camptono Magoya and then he picked one guy,
that was me. And when I went to
Japan I was like, everything’s new for me. The first morning there,
I went to watch the Sumo practice and I was
shocked because two of the wrestlers, when
they smashed together, their heads collided,
and one guy’s tooth was embedded in the forehead
of his opponent. So I immediately
thought I better start training
right away to get better to be able
to beat these guys. A couple free weeks,
you know, and then I’d start winning
some matches and after, for a good while,
then I liked the sport. I actually, I love this. In professional Sumo, the grand champion
is like God. I love Sumo! In Chanko you can add
any vegetables you want. Ginger is showa
in Japanese.>>What about Mongolian?>>Tanga.
>>Never stop eating a champ,
champ, not a champ. [LAUGH] I never stop eating Chanko
because I love it. Probably all my life
I’m gonna eat Chanko. It gives me a lot of
protein and vitamins. When you practice a long
time you lose a lot of sweat, right? That’s why you lose
a lot of power, vitamins from your body. So you renew the vitamins
from the Chanko. Americans like
the chicken soup, right? But Chankonabe’s
different. It’s a fish broth. [MUSIC] For this type of Chanko,
meatball is the key. I mix the meat,
vegetables, and eggs. Mix everything
together and then make the meatballs. [SOUND] Squeeze it. [SOUND] [LAUGH]
You got that? [LAUGH] It’s
almost ready. It’s almost ready. Ready? [NOISE]
So hungry right now. Instead of having
vegetables as a salad, you can mix it
in the soup. You can absorb a lot
more vitamins and minerals from the soup. It’s in the broth. [MUSIC] Oh, I’m full right now. I have to go nap. Then after the nap,
when I wakes up, I was like, feels like so
stronger, you know? I can feel that
everything, like you know, after
the practice, eat, and the sleep, and
the wake up. Oh my God I
getting stronger. [SOUND] We using
this spot for the sumo practice. So now we’re doing for
seminar for three days in a row. Lot of wrestlers from
the out of the state and Canada. I’m trying to teach
the all of the guys. There, there was
like 20 people.>>I’m Sonya. This is my husband
Pierre, the fuzzy guy. We’re from Sacramento. So we drove up to
work with Byamba and have a great time
with the group.>>I’m trying to
just get better and better every day. So with that I came to this camp which
Byamba put on, so that way I could learn
every other technique. Little things that I
was doing right or doing wrong. And I can also bring
it back to my club.>>He is a world
champion, but I got to wrestle
with him a bit, it’s been really good. We’ll just get going. We’re gonna do basically
what we did yesterday for the intro. A couple people
missed the intro.>>Sorry. [LAUGH].>>It’s okay. I didn’t,
I’m not saying names. The Chanko will be at
7:45 in Shin Sen Gumi. We’ll give you
the address later.>>Shin Sen Gumi?>>Shin Sen Gumi, yeah.>>I tend to stick to a
diet that’s high protein, high good
beneficial fats. So, I’m trying to
continuously fuel.>>I usually have about
maybe an eight egg omelet, something
like that. Load in maybe six
to eight sausages. Maybe have three,
four glasses of milk. Anything laying
around I’ll eat.>>Chankonabe
is fantastic.>>I’ve never had it, so it’s gonna be a first
time experience.>>You coming tonight?>>Yeah.>>Yeah, hell yeah. [LAUGH].>>Really fun to teach
for somebody, so I wanna shared for
my experience. For everybody.>>[FOREIGN].>>Your too late

the practice, you know, I’m ready to eat
Chankonabe for recover. Let’s go. [LAUGH] I’m hungry. I make the best
Chankonabe in this country, but tonight we are all going
to the Shin Sen Gumi. [MUSIC] Basically we’re planning
to order pots of Chankonabe. Is that okay
with everybody?>>Chanko. Chanko.>>There you go.>>Chanko.>>There you go.>>[FOREIGN]. [APPLAUSE]
Let me taste first. [LAUGH].>>If you’re
not used to it, it could taste slimey. [MUSIC] Mm, delicious. [MUSIC]>>Hold on, hold on. [MUSIC]>>It’s not about taste. It’s giving you good
vitamins and protein. You know?>>Very good.>>Yeah. [CROSSTALK].>>First time and it’s
squishy and delightful.>>I’m from Louisiana so we do a lot of gumbos and
stuff, and to be honest with you,
it reminds me of like, that down home
type cooking.>>Really,
really moist vegetables. And that spice to it,
that cabbage is phenomenal with
that spice. I mean obviously after
you’ve spent the whole day trying to work
yourself for three hours, and then having to sit
and wait an hour for dinner to come
here when you get something
this big coming. You have all that
anticipation, all that exhaustion from
earlier in the day. It was worth it
completely 100%. I totally [INAUDIBLE].>>He said his
body fat when he was about 330 pounds,
his body fat was 11%.>>Wow.>>When I was 18? 18 years old, yeah.>>Amazing.>>No no now it’s
getting a little bit bigger [LAUGH].>>You wanna
spoon from me?>>Thank you. Oh ho, who is this one? Good food.>>Finish it. Come on. Japanese people
working so hard to put it
in the ground. So you respect that. You have to eat
everything, okay?>>Thank you
>>Yeah. You don’t want to waste
anything because there’s so much nutrition in
there that you don’t want to throw it away. You want to absorb
everything from the bowl. Beer is helpful too,
not too much but [LAUGH]. How is [INAUDIBLE]?>>Really good.
[APPLAUSE] [CROSSTALK].>>Everyone is happy? The national’s coming
up and then U.S. Sumo Open, U.S. Sumo Open
