The training sessions on the Japanese Radio-Taiso in Peru in June 2019 promoted understanding of local people about the characteristics, significance and favourable effects from doing the Radio-Taiso daily. Upon request from the Peruvian Ministry of Education and educational institutions in Lima, we conducted sessions in Peru again in September 2019.The Peruvian Ministry of Education requested us to introduce the Radio-Taiso as a warm-up exercise before the opening ceremony of the national sports competition, Juegos Deportivos Escolares Nacionales 2019, based on the Radio-Taiso concept meeting the Peruvian Ministry’s health enhancement educational goal. Two instructors from the Japan Radio-Taiso Federation demonstrated the Radio-Taiso with 24 students from Juana Alarco de Dammert, a state-run girls’ kindergarten, primary, secondary and high school, who attended the training event held in June, in front of athletes from all over Peru.
This time, we also gave training sessions to introduce Radio-Taiso at special-needs schools and the National Rehabilitation Centre at the request of Peru to realise an inclusive society.
