■武道をやって気づいたこと■ ~赴任後9カ月~

英語で一日の振り返りをまとめてみました。

 

Today, I did not join the judo training. I was just an observant. A secondary school student sprearheaded the judo trainee's class. When he found someone making mistakes or showed bad behaviour, he warned them with a voice of command.

Malawians want to show their best especially when someone is observing. He organized the class very well. If I had joined the training, I would not have realized because I would be tired and self-absorbed in my own training. Today, he came to me frequently in between break times so I complimented him for doing very well. He seemed happy about it.

 

I realized that Japanese discipline is number one among all martial arts spread around the world. Japanese discipline is highly respected. In Malawi, the students taught by Japanese volunteer science teachers like me sometimes became ministry officers. One of them even because an education minister. There are not many volunteers like us. Many students are greatly influenced by Japanese teachers.
