The Sumo Fitness Club
The Sumo Fitness club was a political party based on Balance and the protection of Japan. They didn’t believe that one-sided way of thinking can always be right. It was a party for the freethinking warriors and citizens of Japan. The Sumo identity symbolizes party goals to be a stable and balanced party in Japan.
It would later be known as the Scorpion Clan, however, it had 43 members at the last count of its membership levels.
Edmond Honda is the party mascot. He is a professional sumo wrestler, and his shikona for sumo is mentioned as "Fujinoyama."
He wears his black hair in a chonmage and wears only a blue and red mawashi.
His face is painted in the kumadori style of makeup used in kabuki. Honda's signature move is the Hyaku Retsu Harite (lit., "Hundred Violent Sumo Hands"; commonly referred to as the Hundred Hand Slap). He is one of the original eight playable characters in Street Fighter II, representing Japan alongside Ryu.
- Party members are free thinkers who look at every situation as being unique. Party stand for freedom of speech and didn’t believe anything is off topic in a discussion. Party didn't make anything a taboo topic and was always open for all suggestions which could improve Japan.
- The Sumo Fitness Club was for a strong military force for the protection of Japan. That is why the party had its own Military unit called the Makuuchi Warriors. It was a military unit which consisted of SFC party members. This was a Military unit just like the JIA, only it's funded by contributions from party members and mainly focused on self-defense.
- The Sumo Fitness Club wanted a neutral and balanced global foreign policy. They didn't believe there is any side in the world at the time which could have been seen as the “Good/Right” side. Party supported a regional foreign policy in which close relations are to be kept with Japan's Asian neighbours.
- Helping Japan work better and more efficient. Party wanted to do this by helping new players in its mentor program by learning them the in and out-game mechanics. This was to get a higher percentage of people active from those that join this game.
