In fiscal 2017, the organizers held Japanese-style physical education classes using hexathlon equipment at five elementary schools. All the children were smiling and working hard, and they felt the joy of exercising. Furthermore, as quantitative data, it is possible to improve the number of exercises through movement by repeatedly performing actions such as "throwing" and "jumping" using hurdles using tools that were given due to consideration of safety measures. Since the local educational administrations are aware of these results, the organizers hope that they will be officially introduced into the "Course of Study".
In the future, Mizuno will introduce "Hexathlon as a Japanese-style physical education class" into the "Course of Study" scheduled to be revised from 2019 and introduce a model case for its establishment to promote the activities so far more reliably.

We are very much looking forward to introducing the "Hexathlon Movement Program as Japanese-style Educational Content" into Vietnam's primary compulsory education (public education).
We sincerely hope that the relationship between Vietnam and Japan will become closer and closer and that Japan's support for the Vietnam education system will lead to the improvement of children's physical strength.
We pray for the further development of friendly relations between Japan and Vietnam, the prosperity of Mizuno, and the good health and success of our employees. Once again, I would like to express my sincere gratitude.
