『東京オリンピックに追加された空手、その空手で外国人の沖縄への空手観光がブームに!!!』。。。

 

東京オリンピックの種目に追加された空手。

この空手に興味を示した外国人が

沖縄に観光がてら空手を習いに来ているらしいのです!

 

(なぜ空手を習いに沖縄なんだ?)と思ったら、

どうやら、沖縄は空手発祥の地らしいのです。

 

空手は約500年前に琉球王国の戦士階級に対する自衛として

生まれた物で、19世紀の終わりに日本が近代化する頃、

空手は全国に広がり、その後、海外でも知られるようになったとか。

 

空手。。。

これまで1度もしたことはないし、

なぜ空手があって、

何処が発祥の地なのか等全く知らなかったけれど、

そういう色々なことがあったんだな。。。

 

そして、オリンピックに空手が追加されたというのも、

今回、ニュースを観るまで全然知らなかった(・_・;)

Karate tourism to Okinawa booms ahead of Tokyo Olympics

 

Karate is one of the sports that have been added

to the Olympics, and will appear for the first time in the Tokyo Games

next year. Its popularity has surged following the inclusion,

and an increasing number of karate fans all over the world are visiting

Okinawa to learn the martial art in its birth place.

 

There are said to be about 130 million karate practitioners worldwide.

A group from Switzerland visited Okinawa in southwestern

Japan on a package tour for a 10-day course in mid-April.

 

The tour was organized by Soraya Valleret,

who teaches karate with her husband to 300 students

at three schools they own in Switzerland.

She always wanted to learn the original form of

karate in its birth place.

 

More than 60 students, both male and female,

ranging from novices to dan holders, expressed

interest in the tour, a first for their schools.

Its objective was to master techniques in the birth

place of karate and to learn about things

they can't learn in their home country, including its

history and people's views on it.

 

Karate was born about 500 years ago as a form of

self-defense for the warrior class of the Ryukyu Kingdom.

As Japan modernized itself at the end of the 19th century,

karate spread across the country and then was introduced abroad.

 

An increasing number of foreigners are visiting Okinawa

over the past few years following the inclusion of the sport

in the Tokyo Olympics.

 

The Swiss tour participants practiced for 3 hours,

from 9 AM to noon daily for 10 days at the Okinawa Karate Kaikan,

which opened in 2017. Their instructor was 63-year-old

Yusuke Onaga, a 7th-dan holder who's practiced karate

for over 50 years. Onaga is a karate legend in Okinawa.

 

He won in the heaviest weight category in a National

Athletic Meet in his thirties and has instructed several hundred people.

He has also travelled abroad to teach foreigners,

but has never taught a group of so many practitioners

of different levels.
