5 star rating (average of 4.83 stars from 116 reviews)...'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'...'From the beginning, communication was excellent.

Boy's Parties

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

See snaps from this 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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

See snaps from this 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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)


See snaps from this 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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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."

    (Anna, Cobham - following her son's 11th birthday party)


No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

See snaps from this party"Thanks for a great party yesterday - I think you handled the boys so well - fun but firm!"
    (Belinda, Wormley - following her son's 11th birthday party)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

See snaps from this 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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

See snaps from this 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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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."

    (Anna, Sevenoaks - following her son's 11th birthday party)

No photos available from this event"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)

See snaps from this 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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

See snaps from this 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)

No photos available from this event"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)

See snaps from this 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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

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 "

    (Lisa, Shamley Green - following her son's 11th birthday party)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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."

Thank you for an unforgettable experience."
                          (Michelle, Old Woking - following her son's 9th birthday party)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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."

No photos available from this event"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)

No photos available from this event"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!"

    (Cathy, Ropley - following her son's 10th birthday party)

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!"

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!"

All aspects were covered pre-party and on the day everything was set up and cleared away with no fuss and I had nothing to worry about during the party ... Everything was taken care of ... the children were given safety instructions and rules before the games began. It was by far the best party I have ever held for Jessica it was great fun (couldn't stop laughing at them). Very reasonable costs and good value for money. I would suggest that you possibly add a medal of some description for each of the guests (obviously incorporate prices into party cost or offer as an extra) but even without this it was absolutely brilliant"

Seemed too large and fell off quiate a few times....needs to be a smaller fit and a forehead strap or something to hold in place. Smoke machine was a definite no-no for the children - dramatic effect outweighed by the coughing and spluttering! Great party overall."

No photos available from this event"We recently held a Sumo Experience party for my 12 year old daughter. We paid a bit more as we live further afield than normal, but it was well worth it. From the beginning, communication was excellent. As soon as Martin knew the venue, he checked the website and realised that the rooms booked were a bit small, and got back to me straight away. I was able to change the booking at the hall without any trouble. I thought this was very thorough. The girls had a great time, but probably are at the upper end age wise. I think that 10-11 years is the probably the optimum age. We had one 8 year old present, who was only just big enough to fit in the suit!! I know the girls will remember this party for a long time and judging by the noise level and amount of laughing know that they had a great time!!"

Martin is good at communicating, very friendly and organised. He did a very good job of managing them all when they were a bit rowdy and made sure everyone had several turns. Also made sure they all knew about the safety rules, no injuries occurred, suits are super padded and hence very safe. The kids enjoyed the party and were talking about it for the next week.

We laughed so hard I think some of us developed asthma attacks. Martin was absolutely brilliant hosting the Sumo and made us laugh all the way through the experience. We liked the small details of the head wristbands, the spreading of the salt and the gold clock you ring before the wrestle starts. Thanks a lot Martin for a great experience. We are already recommending the event to everyone we know. Emmelie the hen have some fun memories for life and couldn't have been happier with how it turned out ...

No photos available from this event"This was a new experience for us - a new atempt to raise money for charity and it worked really well. Organisation was great. Atmosphere created - was great. Thank you for your support for us and making the event a success. The pupils were very positive afterwards - this hopefully opens up new avenues for us... the pupils were very happy and staff felt they were left with some dignity at the end."

The children absolutely loved the sumo wresting itself as well as your outfit which they absolutely loved. There has been a lot of talks across the different teams about how much fun it would be to book you for a team building event!! ... thank you for putting such smiles on the children's faces."

No photos available from this event"Great to have Martin back as some of the kids had been to the previous Sumo night held at the youth club and run by him and helpful for him having been to the venue before. This all helps I feel to build up relationships and adds towards the very smooth running of the event. Great fun had by all. Thank you"

No photos available from this event"We had great feedback from loads of people on the Sumo, and I asked my 9 year old daughter what was the best bit and she went on and on about how good her Sumo fight was, how she was banging the gong and was very excited in playing the nurse role 'mopping up the blood from the small Chinese looking man who cut his foot'. So she felt very involved which is what it is all about. I also managed to get one of her fights on my camcorder. In short is was great to see so many children enjoying themselves, we had the weather and it was a great day and very well worthwhile, and we also appreciate how hard you had to work at it non-stop for so long."

    (Nicola, Cranleigh - following the Sumo evening at her youth club)

No photos available from this event"The evening is well organised and controlled which is not easy as we were holding these in four youth clubs where children are often boisterous and pushing the boundaries! Young people really engage in the challenge and it's a great way of getting rid of those simmering frustrations, so long as it's not personal! We used these to concentrate the youngsters minds on how physical pushing is okay in contact sports where special rules apply, but in the street or at school violence is not acceptable and the consequences can be severe to anyone over the age of 10" ... (suggestion) "Maybe a large mat for the adults a bit like in tennis where you have two boundaries, one for singles and one for doubles. The bouts seemed to be over very quickly!"
