To achieve the harmony of knowledge, virtue and the body is a crucial task for Conscience Education as well as for Liberal Arts Education, which aims to cultivate independent, free-spirited individuals. In this symposium, we focus on “the Body,” or sports, and explore the modern-day issues in the field. We will be inviting an Olympic medalist in Judo as a speaker, taking up from the front lines of the sport a variety of topics in which conscience may have a role to play, including prevention of accidents, elimination of violence, and instructor training.
