Sumo In November

My husband and I are gong to Japan on Thursday and one of the reasons the country has always fascinated me is the tradition of Sumo. Unfortunately, we cannot get to the grand tournament on this trip, and I don't know if I could sit on the floor for 2 hours at a stable training session... I was wondering if there are any smaller tournaments which take place, where the lower ranks compete? Any other ideas of how to experience Sumo would be much appreciated.

A Sumo tournament is amazing! I went to the championship in Nagoya a couple of years ago and have tickets in Fukuoka on the 14th November. I don't think the tickets were that difficult to get and Fukuoka is a short plane ride from Tokyo if you wanted to see the professional tournament as well.
