<Feedback from Participants>

◯I hope there will be more online classes like this to keep us updated with new knowledge of Judo and bonding members who love Judo. creating a united Judo - friendship and endurance. Thank you very much to the Kodokan, the president and the teachers


◯Online classes are good during this pandemic. But, face to face teaching, visiting Kodokan in person, is much more beneficial in the long run.


◯I have definitely benefit a lot during Jita-Kyoei Project. This project foster better relationship between Kodokan, Japan and the ASEAN countries. It also enable common interest people (Judokas) to gather and share their experiences and difficulties faced in each of their countries. Sharing of different teaching methods to promote the Fun in Judo, and prolong the practice of Judo, further ignite my passion in Judo. Thank you Kodokan and Asia Center for organising this project and hope that this may continue for the future young coaches who attend.


◯We will continue to refer to Kodokan for our future Judo development and look forward to learning more from online instructional materials!
