Dr Callan spoke on the topic:
Judo injuries in children, a coach education solution?
This paper reviews the tragedy of fatal injuries to children within the Japanese judo community. Consideration is given to the process of judo coach education in Europe, and whether lessons can be learned. Ethical training, assessment, regulation and monitoring of coaches will be presented. Discussion will consider these practices in a cultural context.

At school Jigoro Kano was the victim of bullying. He became determined to study ju-jitsu. We can say that judo was developed from a determination to deal with bullying. This work is not yet finished.
