Mr Bojar is a 200 lb Czech judoka competing in sumo against much larger opponents. I'm posting it here, in the taiji section, because this highlight reel contains some of the finest competitive push hands I've seen:

That was awesome

Not only beautiful throwing technique, he's super strong for his size.

As a side note, as I've often said, Sumo is one of the most practical stand up martial arts in existence.

Looks like they are headbutting each other. That looks fun

Notice how he utilizes the wrestling 2 on 1.

That was a nice palm-strike.

1:47- He "Aiki"ed that sumo!

I saw in one of the comments that he only wins around 50% of his bouts, still better then the 0% he'd win if he wasn't a very skilled projectionist! Impressive that martial arts training can give a much smaller guy a chance!

By the way, what is that first Kanji in his name? something of the mountain.

Taka. It means noble. They always give foreigners interesting names.
