The Kodokan International Judo Seminar that is being conducted as a part of "JAPAN-ASEAN JITA-KYOEI PROJECT" started online on Monday, December 7th.


The Japan Foundation Asia Center and the Kodokan have been running a wide-range exchange program through Judo named "JAPAN-ASEAN JITA-KYOEI PROJECT" intended for all ASEAN countries, from 2017. This program aims at intensifying mutual exchanges, development of human resources and networking. It includes seminars for coaches from overseas, dispatch of Japanese instructors for technical training and lectures, and preparation of instructional materials.

This year, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, we have decided to change the format of this international seminar from facing type to online, as we have been inviting coaches from different countries to Kodokan. The seminar will target young coaches from the 10 ASEAN countries (Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos and Brunei) who were invited to Kodokan for the 2017, 2018 and 2019 past seminars, and the purpose is to follow them up.
