Kodokan Shochu-Geiko kicked off
01 Sep 2020
Kodokan Shochu-Geiko, mid-summer training, began on August 20.
Shochu-Geiko is a traditional event that was invented by Kodokan in 1897 and spread throughout Japan. It is a 10-day training session now, but it used to be held for 30 days in the hottest season to build strength and cultivate a never-give-up attitude.
At the sound of a large drum, trainees lined up in front of the chair of Kano Jigoro Shihan, and the opening ceremony started.
Then, instructors called the roll for the first day.
Speech by Kodokan President Haruki Uemura
Explanation of training notes
Shochu-geiko is held every day until August 29th.
