The Fifth JJAVA Symposium will be held on September 16, 2012 in Nagoya

The fifth symposium on ”Zero Death and Serious Injury in Judo” will be held in Nagoya on Sunday, September 16, 2012.

In the past symposiums of Japan Judo Accident Victims Association, the number of serious injuries and deaths in school judo activities and the analysis of medical connections between judo injury and brain damage have been presented by experts. Strong warnings have been issued about serious judo injuries. Moreover cases of judo accidents in overseas countries and how they dealt with judo safety have been introduced to appeal the need for safety measures in judo classes in Japan.
In this symposium the above topics will be further discussed including speeches to be given by family members of judo incident victims. In addition, dynamics and forensic analysis of judo incidents, which were discussed in last year’s symposium, will be presented in this symposium.
Ms. Noriko Mizoguchi, a silver medalist in the Barcelona Olympics, will speak this year on increasing safety in the judo community.

We look forward to your participation.
