This looks like a really fun event. I haven’t participated in any sumo competitions but I’ve heard they are a blast!
This one is open to two person teams (one adult, one child). Robots must be 100% LEGO with one brain, no limits on sensors or motors. Robots must weigh in at 1 KG or less and must be no larger than 8×8 inches at the start of the match.
If you don’t have a MINDSTORMS kit, I would be willing to sponsor kids currently enrolled in any of my robotics programs who want to participate with their parent by loaning them a robot (subject to availability).
