Wrestling is a very, old sport which is still popular all over the world today. Most wrestlers are big-sized
men, but none can compare with the sumo wrestlers of Japan.
They are really giants; each weighs between 100 and 165 kilogrammes and stands at least 1.8 metres. One
famous sumo wrestler was 2.34 metres tall!
Sumo wrestlers start their training young-around the age of ten. From the beginning, they are encouraged to
eat all the rice and drink all the sake ( Japanese rice wine ) teht they want. Before long, they can eat ten
times as much as a normal person. Naturally, they grow very fat, but they are also very muscular because
they practise judo and exercise every day.
Championship fights are held three times a year at the Kokugikwan Stadium in Tokyo. The Japanese are
such fans of sumo wrestling that they will pay very high prices for tickets. Millions of others watch the
fights on television.
Before each fight begins, the two wrestlers drink water from a bucket. Then, they spit out some of it onto
the sanded floor of the round ring. They also spill some salt over the area where they will wrestle to scare
away wvil spirits.
The referee enters with a fan in his hand. The two wrestlers bend down and. Crouch on their hands and
legs, glaring angrily at each other. Sometimes, the referee takes fisteen minutes or more to start a fight. So
the wrestlers get up a few times to stretch themselves, then crouch again to stare at each other.
Suddenly, the referee points his fan down and the fight begins! The opponents charge at each other,
pulling and swaying as each tries to throw the other out of the ring. Whichever wrestler touches the floor
first is the loser.

In many countries when you are sick, you go to a doctor. The doctor examines you to find out what is
wrong and gives you some medicine or some pills to make you better. But in some countries, other
methods of curing diseases are used.
One of these is the ancient Chinese form of medical treatment called acupuncture. When you visit an
acupuncturist-a doctor who uses acupuncture-he doesnt give you any medicine or pills. He place very thin
needles made of copper, gold or silver into different parts of your body. The acupuncturist believes that the
body contains twelve invisible lines or pathways. These carry life force which must be able to flow thought
the body easily. If the forces cannot flow, our bodies become ill. The needles help the life force flow
throught the body again.
Today there are acupuncture clinics in many parts of the world. Another different type of medicine is called
herbal medicine. Herbs are plants or leaves which can be used to make natural medicine. Some people say
that by taking heerbal medicines the body is able to fight off many diseases. People who use herbal
medicine believe that the body contains repairing processes which enable us to cure ourselves without
taking drugs. By taking herbal medicines regularly, we can make our bodies resistant to diseases. And
certain herbal medicines can cure diseases.
An English doctor called Nicholas Culpeper wrote one of the firs books about herbal medicine in the
seventeenth century. Some of this medicines are still used by herbalists today. In 1977 the World Health
Organization studied, herbal medicines in different countries around the world and said that many them do
produce cures. They also provide cheaper medicine for thousands of people who do not have enought
money to buy Western medicines. The important thing perhaps is not to believe in only one type of
medicine-Western medicine, acupuncture, or herbal medicine-but to keep an open mind and realize that all
three types of medicine have their uses.
