Tom Brady tries some sumo training in Japan

AP

Tom Brady is known for constantly seeking new offseason training methods and this week he looked in an unusual place: A sumo stable.

Brady, who is on a promotional tour in Asia, worked out with the 355-pound sumo wrestler Goeido and asked the trainers questions about their sport, which requires a great deal of balance and power.

For them to welcome me means very much to me. It’s hard to describe in words how special that was,” Brady told the Kyodo News.

When it comes to offseason workouts, a lineman could probably benefit more from sumo training than a quarterback could, but Brady will leave no stone unturned in his quest to keep playing at a high level into his mid-40s.

    A good place to train and avoid questions about concussions.

    Brady gonna cheat his training, probably.

    It’s not training. It’s a fetish for fat Asian men wearing diapers.

    Fun fact: Brady has never lost a sumo match.

    After loading up on Chinese HGH anything is possible I guess including Sumo workouts. Drive for #6 is now underway.

    Why not try WWE like the Gronk?

    Sumo’s have to have extremely fast hands and balance. Skills that would benefit every NFL player.

    The most interesting man in the world.

    I severely dislike Tom Brady, but only because he does not play for my team.

    Without the NFL backing him this guy couldn’t win a flag football tournament.

    This is cool. My niece is currently in Japan right now too. Odd coincidence. I’m a HUGE TB12 fan. My dog is named Brady. He’s good boy. Yes he is!

    Shady Brady knows nothing about Japan. Carry on Cheater!

  15. exinsidetrader says: Jun 22, 2017 1:34 PM

    If Brady was leading the Japanese they would have won WWII. Fact, as he’s just that good.

    Glad Brady is on the side of making America and the Pats great again!

    He should be good, word is he and Ryan O’ used to wrestle “Greco Roman” style all the time.

    355 pounds? That might be the smallest sumo wrestler I’ve ever heard of.

    The above comment is titled “Trying too hard”

    After the training session, did Brady and the Sumo eat avocado ice cream together?

  20. wordsmith513 says: Jun 22, 2017 4:43 PM

    Brady probably thinks that with enough weight he will be unsackable – if that is a word. Of course throwing might take a hit.
