Posted in: Japan judo hits crisis point as bullied, burnt-out children quit See in context

"Judo is a sport that emphasizes humanity," said Yamashita"

Judo is budo, not a sport. Once such an activity becomes a sport, it gets watered down by egos, politics and money. They should remove this from the Olympics and return it to its roots

Posted in: With a record 6 teams, Asian confederation resets goals for World Cup See in context

Should entirely revamp the competition to be like the FA cup with a single knockout format. All countries qualify and higher seeds receive byes until 4th round. All games are 90 minutes then straight to penalties. This would truly be a World Cup with global interest

Posted in: China vows it will fight to the end to stop Taiwan independence See in context

Taiwan should be returned to its rightful owners, the indigenous peoples who were there long before the Han Chinese who arrived on the coattails of the Dutch colonizers many years ago. The UN should declare it a self-governed indigenous UNESCO heritage site based on ecotourism and environmentally friendly industries such as wind energy, which benefit the true indigenous owners of this land

Posted in: 3 Japanese schools to introduce genderless swimsuits with unisex two-piece design See in context

The swimsuits range in price from 6,380 yen to 6,820 yen (SRP, including tax), and come in 10 sizes from 120 cm to 4L

Outrageous pricing. Can get a good quality long sleeve UV swim shirt and shorts for around 2000yen at some online shops

YrralToday  07:01 am JST

What happened in Marioupol,would happen on a grander scale in Tokyo,from a NK launch on Tokyo,with 100 of thousands of people dead or injured

Complete nonsense, NK launch sites and military capability could be neutralised instantly by the allies similar to Iraq

Posted in: Boxing champ Inoue's home burgled during fight See in context

Something doesn't smell right here. Either an inside job by who knew of the scripted fight, or a promoter marketing ploy to draw attention to this otherwise mediocre fight

Curry is "becoming" popular??????who writes this stuff? Real curry has been popular for centuries in India, Middle East, SE Asia.

Other newbie curry countries like UK and Japan have their own less tasty versions.

Donaire was kebabed. He is almost 40 and way past his prime. He is also 5-4 in last 9 fights, hardly championship numbers. Inoue should seek out better fighters if he wants street cred.
