Mission of NIFISA

    The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology-JAPAN (MEXT) started the project ‘Sport for Tomorrow’ to support and contribute to more than ten million people in more than 100 countries until the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. As one of the measures, the National Institute of Fitness and Sports (NIFS) was entrusted to organize and host the ‘NIFS International Sport Academy (NIFISA)’ by the government. NIFISA accepts young coaches and researchers mainly in selected Asian countries and aspires to become the center for developing globally-minded individuals who desire to work in various sport professions in the future.
    In cooperation with university institutions and sports organizations both within Japan and abroad, the seminar provides classes and lectures on research and education in Olympics, sports concepts, sports history, sports medicine, and sports physiology. This program is scheduled for two weeks.
    NIFISA aims to promote research in sports management and sports performance science in addition to Olympic education. The Sports Management Course provides curriculum on sports promotion, sport for all movement, management of sports event and so on. Students participating in the Sports Performance Course will acquire knowledge about sports science, biomechanics, physiology and medicine, and health promotion.
    Through the Academy, all participants will interact with professors and students in NIFS and international young researchers and coaches, and experience social activities and international experiences. This will contribute to the participants becoming globally-minded individuals who can work in professional sport fields in the future.
