Our thanks to colleagues in both dojos for their help in making the visit such a success. particularly Peter Blewett, Chris and Carol Doherty, Professor Nick Rawlings and Dr Tony Buley. Also great thanks to Keiko Mitsumoto and Hiroko Ozawa for their expert co-ordination.

There were 15 team members from Universities across all of Japan. The coaches were Mr Eigo Nose from Shukutoku University and Dr Motoko Matsuda from Osaka University of Health and Sport Sciences.
