"This was a super fun party! We had 14 very excited 8 and 9 year old boys and they just had the best time ever. We had heard, through word of mouth, about the a sumo party and thought it would be a bit different and I couldn't quite believe how excited the boys would be. Martin was absolutely excellent - he was extremely well prepared and arrived in plenty of time to set up and this meant that as soon as the guests arrived it was straight into sumo fun. Keeping the attention of a lively group of boys for an hour and a half is no mean feat and Martin did this brilliantly. They all felt part of the action, even if it wasn't their turn. One word of warning though - be prepared for tears.... tears of laughter! It is just hilarious to see the children in the suits rolling around the floor. A great party and a huge thank you to Martin too!"
(Amelia, Kew - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"What an absolutely amazing day we had with Martin ! He was an absolute God-send the way he managed to capture the attention of a very animated and energetic group of boys for my son's 8th birthday party. They were transfixed and had such a wonderful time. Be prepared for an afternoon filled with laughter and fun. Martin is also such a fountain of knowledge too and the boys learnt a lot about Sumo and it's traditions. I cannot recommend the Sumo Experience enough. We were looking for something different, but enjoyable for the boys and it lived up to all the promises and more. This is definitely the easiest party I have done so far. No stress at all as Martin takes control. I am even thinking of having a Sumo party myself !"
(Minna, Dunsfold - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"This is our second party with Martin - this time for our second son, aged 10. I have been looking forward to it for nearly 4 years since the last one! Martin is a great entertainer, and his parties are hugely fun for both participants and observers! He even makes the safety briefing enjoyable! Both our boys and their friends absolutely loved their sumo parties and they are much talking about at school. Sides are picked impartially and any discrepancies can be rebalanced so every participant has great fun. The suits are so large that there is vast amounts of padding, and the boys were literally bouncing off each other. Martin is brilliant at handing children - he makes sure everyone is safe whilst having a great time as well. I cannot recommend him enough for any child's party - it is a great fun and unusual concept which everyone enjoys. And what is a better recommendation than a repeat customer? Thanks again, Martin."
(Tim, Kilburn - following his son's 10th birthday party)
"We had a party for thirteen 11 year old boys. The whole event was a complete success from start to finish. Well organised and fun for all the children. I haven't laughed so much for ages. It was great to see all the children getting in to the spirit and no one was left out or had time to get bored! Thank you so much for a great birthday party."
(Belinda, Wormley - following her son's 11th birthday party)
"Martin provided the perfect entertainment for twelve children for our 9 year old's birthday party. He held their attention throughout, the pace, structure, costumes, music and equipment were all perfect, a thoroughly original and highly enjoyable experience that I would thoroughly recommend to any mum seeking an energetic experience that will be spoken about at school for weeks to come, the kids had a blast - thank you Martin!"
(Claudia, Fetcham - following her nephew's 9th birthday party)
"The children all loved the Sumo party it was perfect for 8 year old boys who love to wrestle and Martin was exceptionally good at keeping them all organised and interested. As parents we laughed so much we had tears streaming down our faces. A fab experience for everyone. Highly recommended. The party was great - thanks so much. All the boys (and India) loved it. I'm also extremely grateful that you lent me the Sumo's for the cake. It was a great hit and very much appreciated ... Many thanks again for a memorable party."
(Vanessa, Morten in Marsh - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"Martin is brilliant with kids - making the whole experience really fun for them and making it simply hysterical for the watching adults! As fun to watch as to participate in! He kept 13 10 yr olds and one 6 yr old sibling engaged and involved at all times. Importantly, the safety aspects were kept to the fore in a way that did not detract from the fun. A great event for everyone - Martin did a great job."
(Tim, Cricklewood - following his son's 10th birthday party)
"A fantastic party, outstanding communication and organisation from Martin from start to end, Martin even offered to stay on longer to help organise some extra games with the time we had at the end of the party. Really please with safety aspect and as just as importantly the children had a great time, very very funny they were in stitches. Would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Martin and the great Sumo experience. Thank you!" ... (suggestion) "Don't think it can be improved on!"
(Shareen, Bandstead - following her son's 12th birthday party)
"My son has his 9th birthday party with Martin, who ran a very smooth party , had a couple of autistic children and had them both joining in and thoroughly enjoying themselves, highly recommend and my stomach hurt from all the laughing.Thank you Martin"
(Dawn, West Ewell - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Thank you very much for yesterday – it was a big success! And hilarious."
(Laura, Croydon - following her son's 14th birthday party)
"Thanks for a great party. Henry said it was his best party ever! I haven't laughed so much for a long time. ... An easy party to arrange - we did nothing! The boys has a ball. It was something new to them all. It's always a challenge to find a different theme for a party and Sumo fits the bill."
(Jenny, Worcester Park - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"I thought I’d just drop you a line to say thank you for doing Nicholas’ party this morning – he thoroughly enjoyed himself and declared it to be the best party he’d ever had! Our only concern is that they’re going to be running round the playground on Monday shouting 'fat boy' to anyone slightly overweight!"
(Janet, Ealing - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"By far the best elements for the party were Martin himself - funny, fun, authoritative, professional, brilliant with the kids - and the suits and the detail such as the gong and the salt which made the whole experience so original and different. It was great having the invites on the website"
(Margaret, Stoke Newington - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Thank you so much for today the boys had a great time. It seemed like a lot of money at the time of booking but it was well worth it and the fire breathing was an added extra that Josh was chuffed to take part in... It will be a party to remember for a long time."
(Sally, Bagshot - following her son's 14th birthday party)
"We had a sumo wrestling party for my sons 8th birthday party and he absolutely loved it. All of the children that attended felt engaged and had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend Sumo Experience for a kids party, it keeps them entertained and laughing about it for days afterwards!"
(Sonia, Ealing - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"My son and his friends had a fabulous time trying out their muscles as sumo wrestlers at his 9th birthday party. Martin was great and also very good at coaching some of the more timid members of the group. It wasn't long before everyone realised they were totally safe and unlikely to hurt themselves and how funny they looked in their suits. They all had so much fun, as did we. I haven't laughed so much in ages. I'm tempted with the idea of an adult sumo party sometime soon. There are many different opportunities in which this kind of entertainment would be fantastic! Give it a go for sure ... It was fabulous and was talk of the class when they all got back to school on Monday."
(Nikki, Woking - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Thanks so much for today. You were fantastic especially since there seemed to be some challenging moments. I hope the gong lives to see another day after such a bashing!"
(Nikki, Woking - following her son's 10th birthday party the following year)
"Martin skilfully kept twelve eight and nine year olds enthralled for an hour and a half - no mean feat!! A first rate party that will be remembered and talked about for some time to come. A little bit more special and unique than the usual Laserquest or Go-Karting and mum and dad still get a bit of a rest - thanks so much!"
(Josie, Yateley - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Martin is wonderful with the children, he really engages them and gets them involved and caught up in the atmosphere. Highly recommend it. I had a go too and it was fun."
(Lucy, Bentley - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"Sumo Experience have just run a party for my 10 year old plus a bunch of active boys. The party was great fun, well organised and everyone was kept occupied and part of the experience. The kids loved Martin. I would recommend this as a party any time. Great memories!"
(Valerie, Woking - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Thank you for the party, Jasper and his friends had a really good time ... my feedback is all positive! We really didn't have to do anything other than watching and laughing, so it was wonderful for us. Your preparation was quick, it was fun, you handled the boys well (you know it is hard to control the boys of that age, they could be naughty), you tidied up quickly, and most of all Jasper enjoyed it. It was great to see the boys having fun! I think the boys will remember it as a real fun occasion. Oh also pre-party chat (before booking) was informative and so is your website."
(Kumi, Woking - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Both my husband and I would like to thank Martin so much for such a wonderful party. Our son Alex who was turning 9 had the time of his life so did his friends. Martin has got the combination of fun and discipline just right. I know that it was the talk of his class on Monday. Thank you Martin and I will recommend you to everyone."
(Jane, Farnham - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Great party for boys this age - they were really enthusiastic and loved the fighting and dressing up!"
(Anna, Cobham - following her son's 11th birthday party)
"This is the second consecutive Sumo party we've done as it was so good the first time, my son who is now 12 wanted to do it again! I can honestly say to date, it is the best children's party I've done for either of my kids in terms of all the points above. Martin Day is fantastic with kids, they all have a really good time but in a safe controlled environment - brilliant!!!"
(Anna, Cobham - following her son's 12th birthday party)
"Absolutely spectacular. Definitely the best party we have ever attended. Organiser was increadibly professional. he phoned twice to ensure all arrangements ok in 48 hours pre party and arrived 45 minutes prior to the party. All the kids and adults loved the party from 6 years to 77 years of age... We are still talking about the party. It was fantastic."
(Nitha, Hendon - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Great fun party for 8 and 9 year old boys. Martin arrived early and was organised. It was a large group but Martin handled them very well. Thank you."
(Victoria, Farnham - following her twin sons' 8th birthday party)
"All 14 of the boys absolutely loved it and the way that Martin kept them entertained for an hour and a half when there were only two wrestling at a time, was excellent. We all had a great time, adults and boys alike!"
(Claire, Sunnigdale - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"The boys absolutely loved the idea and watched the links on the website many times before the party. On the day Martin organised our group of very rowdy boys with ease and they had a brilliant time. Many parents stayed to watch because it was hilarious."
(Sandra, Hinchley Wood - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"Martin was great at engaging and entertaining the boys for my son's 9th birthday party and they hugely enjoyed it. He is very professional and efficient and was incredibly helpful and friendly during the party itself, not just during the sumo part. Would highly recommend and my 5 year old can't wait to be old enough to try it for himself!"
(Juliet, Guildford - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"George's 9th Birthday party was great fun and the kids really enjoyed themselves. Martin was fun but able to keep control of excitable children and also to keep them all interested and involved. Thank you for a stress free experience, we will definitely recommend you."
(Kari, Kingswood - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Martin Day made the whole experience huge fun for the children. And for the adults! I don't think we have ever laughed as much as seeing boys dressed as sumo wrestlers having a ball! A couple of the boys said they had never had so much fun. My son said it was his best birthday party ever! Martin even managed to keep control of fourteen 9-year old boys! He also went beyond the call of duty in helping us clear up and transporting all our stuff back to the house in his car. I cannot recommend the Sumo Experience enough." ... (suggestion) "Perhaps give the children a few more tidbits about sumo culture."
(Karina, Chelsea - following her son's joint 10th birthday party)
"The kids had a great time, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the party. The kids loved putting on the outfits and jumping on each other, and just for once they are given permission to do so! This was a great party for parents as well, as there was no need for crowd control, the children were engaged for almost the whole time, a rarity with children! ... I think that it was the most relaxed kid’s birthday party I’ve ever been to. I’m sure there is some benefit to getting rid of all that pent up aggression, the boys seemed unusually laid back! You truly have a great gift, and great imagination!"
(Janet, Pirbright - following her son's 11th birthday party)
"One of the boys, as he was leaving, announced confidently that it was the best birthday party he had ever attended. All the party goers enjoyed themselves. A lot of belly laughs from kids and parents. Truly comical. And very professionally run. Martin arrived promptly, set up without fanfare and began the events with a succinct explanation of rules, & regulations. The children knew what was expected and they enjoyed the combination of letting it rip and bringing it back to a focused silence. I particularly liked the structure of the competition. I loved Martin's props: his robe, salt, music, smoky steam, and gong. All very atmospheric and novel for western kids. There was nothing I disliked about the event." ... (suggestion) "Perhaps Martin could have made it clear to the boys that they needed to sit and not get up and help themselves to drinks and food. Would it be helpful if there was a ten minute break between rounds for toilet, food and drink...all clearly specified at the start?"
(Gillian, Oxford - following her son's joint 9th birthday party)
"It was a brilliant party!!! Any worries about the children getting bored were gone after 5 seconds! Highly recommended. Oliver's friends at school still talk about it and all want the same party now. Thank so much Martin." ... (suggestion) "Smaller suits for short kids."
(Patricia, Fulham - following her employer's son's 8th birthday party)
"Absolutely brilliant! The kids and parents all had a fantastic time and Martin managed to keep control and keep the interest of 14 extremely lively 7 year old boys whilst ensuring everyone had loads of fun"
(Naomi, Muswell Hill - following her son's 7th birthday party)
"This is the best party we've ever booked for our 8 year old son. Martin was great & held the children's interest & concentration for all 90 minutes- no mean feat! All the children still raving about party & now they all want one! One very happy 8 year old & parent's :-). Thank you Martin"
(Shelley, Warlingham - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"The children had an absolute ball! Martin was great with the children, kept them all under control but letting them have a huge amount of fun at the same time."
(Sarah, Sutton Green - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"The party was a great success and Rudy and all his friends had a great time. Thanks for all your help before and after and don't worry about the fire alarm, those things happen!"
(Ben, Maida Vale - following his godson's 8th birthday party)
"Organisation was excellent and Martin was very helpful and flexible in trying to meet our party needs. He was a pleasure to work with on the day and I felt really wanted the party to be a success."
(Anna, Sevenoaks - following her son's 11th birthday party)
"Thanks for a brilliant party, all of the children loved it and had a lot of fun wrestling and cheering their team members on. It was also hilarious for the adults to watch too. My daughter's birthday is in May and she enjoyed it so much she's thinking of having a sumo party for her friends."
(Debbie, Lightwater - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"Thanks very much for running the party on Sat - definitely a success with the boys and very stress free for us so a winner all round! Earplugs would have been a good idea though! A great event for 9 year old boys!"
(Amanda, New Malden - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"A fantastic party concept that Robert and his friends thoroughly enjoyed. Martin kept fourteen 7-8 year boys in tow superbly while still maintaining the fun aspect of things. Not only was it a great activity to take part in but it also kept the watching adults fully entertained ... They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I’ve already had lots of positive feedback about both the party content and T-shirts."
(Anna, Horsham - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"A huge thank you from all of us for hosting such a fun-filled party for James. You were ace and all the boys had a complete blast."
(Lindsay, Dulwich - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"The children really enjoyed themselves. It kept them amused for an hour and a half. (A great feat for 10 year old boys!) Smoke machine was great."
(Amanda, Dorking - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Thank you for such an enjoyable time. We liked everything. The only thing I would say is the floor area could have been bigger to sumo in so it wasn't over so quickly."
(Lynda, Byfleet - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Thought the whole experience was fantastic. I was a little bit nervous at the beginning as it was something that none of them had done before, but my nerves soon disappeared once the party started. The boys had a blast. Everyone of them came to me at the end with huge smiles on their faces and saying they really enjoyed it. Thanks to Martin for great organisation and making the party fun for all involved. Would definitely recommend to other parents. Thank you very much." ... (suggestion) "My only slight concern, was that maybe more mats needed around the side as a couple of times during bouts, the kids fell off the mats, and although Martin had given specific safety advice re turning their heads when they fell, so as not to hit their faces, they obviously forgot during the excitement. Having said that, no one was injured and they all came up laughing."
(Cheryl, Yateley - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"The party was absolutely fantastic - The boys were 10 and so I reckon it was the best party they could have had - a legitimate reason to beat each other up (but very safely)! I was very impressed with everything on the day! The boys absolutely loved it! So no doubt see you again!"
(Helen, Yateley - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"We all enjoyed it - it made hosting a kids party much easier for us, and all the boys seemed to have a great time. One Mum phoned to tell me it was a really good idea and that her son had a 'fab time'."
(Naomi, Hurst - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"We had a FANTASTIC party, Martin kept all the boys (aged 8 and 9) entertained and engaged for the WHOLE session. They all loved it and had a fantastic time. It was very funny. I would highly recommend Martin, he arrived the first one to the party and had everything ready before the kids arrived. The whole set up was very professional and really got the boys interested."
(Alicia, Copthorne - following her son's shared 9th birthday party)
"Alex and his friends had a great time! Thank you."
(Heather, Guildford - following her son's 7th birthday party)
"The most entertaining birthday party for the adults watching the kids! The boys loved it too ... Thank you for such a great and entertaining party. Awesome!"
(Berengere, Woking - following her son's 11th birthday party)
"This is the second time we have a Sumo Experience for my kid's birthday. It was as much fun for his 11th as it was for his 13th birthday! Martin is well organised, very pleasant to have around with bags of energy. He obviously enjoys what he is doing and this is contagious. The Sumo costumes are both hilarious to watch and very safe to use - I know as I had a turn with my husband! A great experience, as much fun to play as to watch."
(Berengere, Woking - following her son's 13th birthday party)
"Thought Martin was great with the boys. Managed to control their excitement without spoiling their fun. My son had his 'Best birthday party ever'"
(Karen, Wimbledon - following her son's 12th birthday party)
"Martin worked extremely hard to create a great party with some very boisterous boys. very efficient, punctual and carefully thought out."
(Georgina, Notting Hill - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Martin Day put on a wonderful Sumo Wrestling party for my 8 year old son and twelve of his friends - good clear instructions to the boys at the start and then great fun in fat suits - lots of laughing and cheering on of the teams. I would highly recommend him."
(Jane, Downside - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"Great party, kids really enjoyed themselves."
(Lisa, Weybridge - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Party was booked for a 10th birthday party. Martin was easy to contact and very helpful explaining how everything works and accommodating our needs. He also was willing to travel that bit further to get to us. Party went really well, the boys all had a fantastic time and the adults haven't laughed so much in ages."
(Angela, Sutton - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"The children thoroughly enjoyed the party. Martin had a great rapport with the boys and quickly gained their respect."
(Carolyn, Walton-on-Thames - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Many thanks for today. They all really enjoyed themselves and Jason was over the moon. He won't be forgetting his 10th birthday, happy memories for years to come especially as he was the champion... Hopefully, I will see you at another party as you will be well recommended. It was real fun "
(Sacha, Farnham Royal - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Totaly FANTASTIC party!! The kids had a brilliant time and the parents were all in stitches laughing.. Best party I have had!!! totally recommend it. "
(Lyndall, Purley - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"I thought the organisation was very good. Martin gave 100% and all the children had a wonderful time."
(Gina, Weybridge - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"My son had a great birthday party. The kids had so much fun and the parents loved watching it.. Martin was fantastic with the kids. He made the children laugh with good banter but was also firm when needed to keep them under control. We all really enjoyed the sumo experience and I would recommend this to anyone thinking about having a go!!!!"
(Sylvia, Barnet - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"The party was a great success... The kids had a wonderful time and many of them have come up to me today to say how much fun it was! I really appreciate you changing the party time at such short notice..."
(Tracey, Woking - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"The children loved the sumo party, they had a lot of fun and didn't stop laughing, neither did the parents watching!"
(Debbie, Lightwater - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"I've just asked my son for some feedback on his party today and the quote was 'best party he's ever been to and Martin was a really nice bloke and good fun. Had lots of people jumping on people!' Think that says it all really!"
(Louise, Woking - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"We really enjoyed the party on Saturday. Michael said it was excellent and we felt that Martin controlled the whole event (and the boys very well)! Many thanks"
(Lisa, Shamley Green - following her son's 11th birthday party)
"Liked the organization into teams of equal heights. Liked the little bit of Sumo tradition. Liked the two types of games 1.team 2. champion I thought the red circle was maybe a little too small. The battles were over very quickly without much bouncing off each other. i.e. it was too easy to be out. The final game with the handkerchief seemed to go on a bit longer but then trying to keep 8 other little boys entertained was difficult. It would seem to be a bit of a balancing act trying to give everyone a decent go without losing the interest of the spectators. I think there was a bit of an issue of how little time they got battling compared with the time they got to sit still which for 10 yr olds is difficult. I thought Martin was good at crowd control of naughty boys remembering that the boys weren't mine to yell at." ... (suggestion) "Maybe an emphasis on the team - stopping to announce the progress scores and what each team needed next to go on to win might have kept the spectators more involved. Sorry we introduced the snacks. I didn't realise how rude a few of the boys were."
(Jane, Notting Hill - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"We had a brilliant day. The party ran very smoothly. The boys said it was the best party ever. The video we took had us and grand parents in fits of laughter that evening. Martin was great with the children and made the party lots of fun."
(Marian, Godalming - following her son's 11th birthday party)
"We all thought it was great fun and I only wish we had organised that the parents of the children attending the party had stayed to watch as they would have loved it. The boys loved the authenticity of the event - i.e. smoke, gong and salt."
(Bernie, Tadworth - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Many thanks for the entertainment on Saturday. Your party session was such good fun - I was at a Year 3 mum's night out last night and the mums of those that participated were full of it"
(Claire, Woking - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"The boys all really enjoyed the party. However, towards the end they were getting a bit restless. I thought it would be a good idea to get them involved a bit more in the second half - banging the gong was a good idea which they enjoyed. Maybe each team could have a scorer, or 2 at a time, and all the players could have a go at scoring. They could even score some of the cleverer moves so that there is also a team award for style as well as number of wins. Teach them a few insults in Japanese!" ... (suggestion) "Some cotton wool or something absorbent would be useful in the first aid kit for mopping up blood!"
(Candace, Gomshall - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Really enjoyed it as kids were kept completely focused and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was fun to see little people transform into little sumos. The kids just couldn't wait for the party and could not stop talking about it afterwards. Definitely recommend it for this age group (8 years old). Thank you so much for a great party. Michael really enjoyed it and I really appreciated your help at the end too."
(Yianna, Fetcham - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"My 10 year old son had an excellent party on Sunday. A really original party that none of the other boys had been to before. Martin engaged brilliantly with the kids and really got them into the spirit of Sumo despite some of them being quite shy at first. The children were of different heights and sizes including a couple of 7 year olds but all had loads of fun. I would highly recommend a Sumo Experience party!"
(Caroline, Epsom - following her son's shared 10th birthday party)
"The whole Sumo Experience was incredibly well organised. All 19 boys had a fantastic time and Martin took care of everything Sumo related, leaving me to just sort the food and the cake!! My son wants to have the same party again already! Thank you for an unforgettable experience."
(Michelle, Old Woking - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Martin has the right qualities and experience to entertain and employs such great attention to detail to make the Sumo wrestling event a fun, entertaining and engaging experience. He is fun but firm and able to control groups of energetic children so that they all have equal turns in a safe environment and the use of teams adds to the atmosphere and competition. I would whole-heartedly recommend him for his professional approach and he provides a great sumo experience, which is a unique fun event."
(Paula, Lee on Solent - following her son's U12 football team awards evening)
"This was the 2nd Sumo party I had booked, I wouldn't normally wish to spend so much on a party for my son but luckily he had a joint party so the cost was split. The Sumo experience is one you have to try, it is hilarious to watch and all the kids enjoyed it. Martin was very helpful, good with the children and explained the party process brilliantly. I would definatley book another party in the future."
(Kaley, Byfleet - following her son's joint 9th birthday party)
"We really enjoyed the party. It was disrupted by a few people being late. I think that it was good that there were not many more children as seven year old boys can be quite rowdy. The children need to be carefully matched in age and size. They all had a good time and it was a memorable experience for everyone."
(Lisa, Putney - following her son's joint 7th birthday party)
"Martin ran my 9 year old's birthday party and it was a great success. He kept the boys engaged even when they weren't wrestling and they all had a great time."
(Garth, Guildford - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"The party was excellent - surpassed my and my children's expectations - I haven't laughed that much in a long time! Thanks Martin - a true professional!"
(Kirstie, Chiddingfold - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"We had our Sumo party for our son's 10th birthday in the garden as the weather was lovely. Martin was great throughout the day; the kids really listened to him and he had total control for the whole of the party. The boys had a great day and there was lots of testosterone flying about, but in a good way! The boys were exhausted at the end of the day! Everything was really well organised and looked great."
(Caron, Camberley - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"As I knew there would be a lot of waiting for their turns, I wondered how the 10 boys (12 & 13 year olds) would be. They were great. Martin kept everyone involved, encouraging cheering for their teammates, joking, but keeping them under control! They had a great laugh and the teenage "cool" went as soon as they put the fat suits on so funny for the adults to watch too! Highly recommend!"
(Carol, Woking - following her son's 13th birthday party)
"Great fun, kids loved it! I bet the adult Sumo parties are a hoot! Thanks a lot, Martin."
(Chris, Shamley Green - following his son's 7th birthday party)
"All the kids had a great time and it was really nice to do something a bit different. Martin was great with the kids and managed to get everyone involved. It was fun to watch too!"
(Cathy, Ropley - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"We used an indoor hall that was quite large and whilst that added to the event it also made it quite noisy so perhaps on reflection I would choose a smaller venue. Aside from that it was a great event enjoyed by all" ... (suggestion)"Smaller numbers in the group."
(Phoebe, Guildford - following her son's 7th birthday party)
"Thank you so much for the Sumo party for my son. He and his friends had an excellent time. The party is very original and the service you provided was exceptional. You were a natural with the kids and I would not hesitate to book again"
(Sarah, Merstham - following her son's joint-10th birthday party)
"A fantastic idea for a 10 year old boy's birthday party. Great fun was had by all and Martin is brilliant! He really gets into character!!!"
(Jane, Weybridge - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Thank you once again for a memorable fun birthday party. Children are still talking about it. Even one of the boys is thinking about having the same party for his upcoming party later in the year. "
(Inci, Cobham - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"Really good party which kept the kids enthused and involved for the whole time. Thank you"
(Gemma, Four Marks - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"In general the party was excellent and all the boys had a brilliant time. I thought a bigger mat could of been better as a couple of times i saw faces head towards a wooden floor. I question that and hour and a half for this age group may have been a little long as towards the end they started to loose interest. But these are small niggles as over all the party was excellent!"
(Sarah, Abinger Hammer - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"The Sumo Experience was great fun. Martin was easy to deal with, and great with the kids. The boys had a great time, and the party really hit the spot for a group of 10 year old boys ; being invited to come and have a 'safe' game of rough 'n' tumble! I would definately recommend Martin to other people. An hour and a half of good fun, and worn out kids at the end of it - fantastic!"
(Sarah, West Clandon - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"We can confirm that Tom and his friend’s thoroughly enjoyed the party. We were really impressed as you seem to pitch the party very well according to age."
(Paul, Hersham - following his son's 13th birthday party)
"Martin arrived in good time , and managed very energetic children very well with a good balance of humour and discipline (7 year old boys can get a little over excited!!). The boys enjoyed the party and it was probably one of the most stress free childrens parties I have ever had to host."
(Daisy, Pyrford - following her son's 7th birthday party)
"Sumo Sam and Sumo Dan shared their 9th birthday party and had a fantastic time. Lots of laughs. Martin managed the balance of allowing the boys to be boys, but being firm when he needed to be to make sure that everything ran smoothly and everyone had enough turns"
(Sarah, Bisley - following her son's shared 9th birthday party)
"Very professional and great fun for everyone."
(Anna, Oxshott - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"10 x14-year-old boys are difficult to manage but Martin did it brilliantly. He was in complete control throughout, organised the boys into teams and allowed them to let off steam. I thoroughly recommend Sumo Experience. My son and his friends had a fantastic time."
(Laura, Croydon - following her son's 14th birthday party)
"Thanks again for a great party! The boys really enjoyed it and it gave us adults some entertainment too!"
(Kate, Walton-on-Thames - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"Had a great party, Martin was able to keep the boys (aged 8 and 9) thoroughly entertained and engaged for the whole session and it was hilarious! The boys loved it and some of the parents are keen for a go themselves! I would highly recommend Martin, the whole set up was very professional and really got the boys interested. My son already asking if he can have the same party next year! :-)"
(Angela, Wandsworth - following her son's 9th birthday party)
"Martin made my son's birthday party! It was memorable and fun for all concerned. He was very professional and I totally recommend him."
(Karina, Chelsea - following her son's 10th birthday party)
"It was hilarious to watch the children bob about in the suits, especially the little ones. Moreover they loved it too. The boys voted it the best party of this season (so far!) really good laugh and simple fun."
(Georgi, Cobham - following her son's 6th birthday party)
"We recently had a Sumo Party for my son's 8th birthday. I found Sumo Experience Parties online and hired Martin largely on the basis of the positive reviews he'd received. As a result, I had high expectations, and I have to say that Martin totally exceeded them. He was such a brilliant host and my son and his friends had a really fun time. I have also had lots of lovely feedback from the parents who stayed to watch. It was good to see them having fun too! What a great concept! And it was all handled so professionally. I was really pleased and I have no hesitation in recommending Sumo Experience to anyone considering it. Thank you Martin!"
(Sarah, Weybridge - following her son's 8th birthday party)
(5 star Google review) "＋one more star. Excellent coordination. Boys definitely loved it and this unique experience will be something to talk about forever. Thank you Martin and best wishes."
(Miwa, Ealing - following her son's shared 9th birthday party)
"Just held a very successful 8th birthday with Sumo Party and Martin Day. Martin took control of 12 boys for an hour and a half. The party was hysterical and thoroughly entertaining. My son says it was the best party he has ever had and I think his friends would agree. A novel party idea which I would highly recommend."
(Andrea, Bromley - following her son's 8th birthday party)
"This was probably the best party idea ever! My son and his friends loved every minute. I was very impressed with Martins attention to detail. Try it you will love it."
(Keith, Shamley Green - following his son's 10th birthday party)
"A brilliantly fun birthday party for my 11 year old Son and friends! They loved every minute and Martin was great with them all. Would highly recommend!!!"
(Lee-Anne, Chislehurst - following her son's 11th birthday party)
"This is one of the best parties that it is possible to have! So much fun for the wrestlers and the watchers! I think we all laughed from the moment they started to the moment they finished! Martin is absolutely brilliant with the children and we cannot praise him highly enough!"
