This year, the 2020 olympics are supposed to take place in Tokyo (Japan’s capital). As we are learning about Japan for our topic I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to learn about the role of sports within Japanese society.
I would like you to research three traditional Japanese sports, for example: Sumo, Jujitsu or Judo.
For each of your traditional sports you must look at it’s history, researching:
- When was the sport created? By Whom?
- 3 key events in it’s history
- Is the sport still popular today, why?
I would then like you to research at least 2 sports that Japan are currently successful in. Please explain how Japan are successful in the given sport. Have they won 3 olympic gold medals in swimming etc?
You can display this information in whichever form you like, that may be a video presentation, a leaflet, or some informative paragraphs in the comments below!
There are many different sports that Japan have made an impact on that you might like to write about too! This is an independent research task but I have added some interesting videos below!
You must send in your work to email@example.com
