I watch rugby league and love the game, and I agree that it is a brutal game. "A hard game played by hard men." However the fact that this boy died playing the game is surely a reason to look at and ensure the safety of the men playing it. I also agree that the whole attitude about the hardness of the game may need to be altered so that we do everything in our power to ensure that something like this doesn't happen again.,

Minister calls judo beatings Japan's worst sports crisis

Minister calls judo beatings Japan's worst sports crisis | Scholarship PE - Violence in sport | Scoop.it

Allegations that the national women’s judo coach used a bamboo sword to beat his athletes, including some Olympians, are the “gravest crisis” to hit Japanese sport, the education minister said Tuesday.

Former world champion Ryuji Sonoda resigned in humiliation last week after admitting that claims he had physically and emotionally abused 15 of the country’s top sportswomen were “more or less true.”

The explosive claims have rocked a nation accustomed to greatness in judo, and come as Tokyo seeks to persuade Olympic bosses it should be allowed to host the 2020 Games.

“The incident is the gravest crisis in Japan’s sporting history,” Education Minister Hakubun Shimomura told reporters.

“We should not shy away from the facts and should review not only judo but all sorts of sports to see whether they have overlooked violence in the name of achieving sporting excellence.

“This is the time that Japan can show both to those inside and outside the country that it has abandoned all violence in sports,” Shimomura said.

He said Japan’s many sporting associations each needed to set up a hotline for athletes who had concerns and should review the ways coaches are educated.

The scandal claimed another scalp Tuesday when Kazuo Yoshimura, the head of training at the All Japan Judo Federation, announced he was stepping down.

“I would like to make a heartfelt apology for my poor supervision,” he told a press conference

Acting women’s national head coach Masaru Tanabe on Tuesday vowed he would go all out to provide an opportunity for athletes “to be able to give their best performances,” as the team flew to Europe for an international competition.

In a sports policy conference held by the ruling Liberal Democratic Party on Tuesday, some participants expressed concerns about the scandal’s negative impact on Tokyo’s bid for the Olympics, public broadcaster NHK reported.

In an interview with AFP last Friday, Japanese Olympic Committee president Tsunekazu Takeda, who is also the Tokyo bid chief, rejected speculation the scandal could give a bad impression of sport in Japan.

He insisted the necessary changes were being made.

“In response to the problem, the head coach is being changed and I believe the judo federation will quickly move forward with its internal reform,” he said.

The 100-plus members of the International Olympic Committee will gather in Buenos Aires on Sept 7 to vote on which city—Madrid, Istanbul or Tokyo—should host the 2020 Games.

The bullying scandal added fuel to a debate over corporal punishment in Japan following the suicide of a schoolboy who had been repeatedly hit by his basketball coach.

Damian Lenoel's curator insight, February 9, 2015 5:19 AM

I can definitely say that violence has always been a part of human life throughout the ages. It(Sports) has always been about authority, and dominance, that is hardly going to change. Playing contact sports always gets people fired up (Players included) and there is always going to be violence demonstrated through sport. For some people, contact sports can be a stress reliever, letting them take out their anger on other people in a more controlled way than fighting on the streets. I think society needs to stop worrying about violence in sports. Yeah sure it leaves an impression on our growing generation, but shouldn't they(The children of society) be taught by their parents or caregivers what is right, and what is wrong?

Cassandra Thompson's comment, February 8, 2015 3:48 AM
i agree that we are focusing a lot more winning than just enjoying the sport we play which does lead to all the fights that some younger kids look up to and think its okay. i believe that we should be focusing more on the game itself and enjoy doing something we love rather than giving kids the impression that it is okay to fight someone if you lose
