Daughter Dew...

  • May 20, 2012 12:30 PM PDT

    Some of you know Dew, our daughter is living and working in Japan.  She speaks and writes Japannesse fluently and is teaching Japannesse Students (3rd thru 9th) english. 

            Anyway as a lark she entered in Japans Annual Womens Sumo Contest!  I did a U-tube search and those women get SERIOUS!  Anyway the contest was a held last weekend.  She had never wrestled in her life and was pretty apprehensive.  The big bosses at work, took her out and started drinking Saki the night before and tried to teacher her some "tricks"...  Wish we had THAT on U-tube!  Well the next day she travelled  to another city for the contest and get registered...there was over 70 women entered!

             The following day the contest began,  they had played on her name and had named her "Odori Yama" on her fight card.  Translation - "Dancing Mountain"!  Dew won 8 boughts in a row!  She ended up in the final round apposed to the reigning champion for 5 years for 1st place!  She ended up taking Second place, won $400 cash and many small prizes...She was interview and was on TV and in papers...never had a foriegner gone so far!  She now has became somewhat of a local celibrity....  

    Proud Dad!

    That is so great! Everything from taking the risk and going so far away to teach English to entering the competition as a "foreigner"! Congratulations to you all!! That is one brave woman!
