Kodokan Shochu-Geiko kicked off
02 Jul 2021
Kodokan Shochu-Geiko, mid-summer training, began on July 1.
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.
First, trainees lined up in front of the chair of Kano Jigoro Shihan. Instructors called the roll for the first day.
Then, at the sound of a large drum, the opening ceremony started.

We received 120 applications for Shochu-geiko.
Shochu-geiko is held every day until July 10th.
The training area was divided into boys&girls, school Kodokan, and general, and practitioners practiced at each dojo.
There will be a practice on Sunday the 4th from 16:00-18:00.
