This project was implemented from 2014 with the aim of contributing toward improving the skills of junior athletes and instructors by dispatching instructors of sports in which Japan is superior in the world such as judo to overseas cities.1) Introduced the 'history of judo' in a PowerPoint presentation, explained about good use of energy and the spirit of mutual prosperity for oneself and others (2) Taught about manners, passive practical skills and human education of judo (3) Introduced practical instruction and exercise methods for standing techniques, grappling techniques, and ‘ashibarai’ tripping techniques.
Feedback from Participant :
The number of instructors who understand the basic spirit of judo is decreasing, and we received lectures on basic spirit and instruction on basic actions such as manners and passivity which were easy to understand. I want to tell local students all about what I was taught this time.
