For Overseas Fencers

From President of FJE

Greetings from the Association President

I have recently taken office as President of Japan Fencing Federation.

When our previous president Mr. Masashi HOSHINO had nominated me as president, I was at first hesitant as to whether a young fellow like me could fulfill the duties as president, but before finally accepting this position I came to think that only someone who had just ended an active athletic career could do something for the sake of all fencers.

I am aiming to manage a well-balanced and fair organization without overspecializing only in strengthening.
In concrete terms, I aim (1) to restore good health and joy to the society through the Sport of Fencing; (2) to popularize fencing extensively and increase the number of fencers to 50,000 from currently a little less than 6,000 registered fencers; (3) to achieve success at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, not only aiming for the medals but also hoping to have fencing take root in Japanese society after the Olympics; (4) to stabilize the financial basis of our organization. It is natural for our organization to financially support our fencers who are training hard everyday as much as possible, but it is impossible to support our fencers without stabilizing our organizational structure.

While honoring the foundation laid by efforts of our previous president Mr. Hoshino and predecessors, I will move ahead with my managing plan, cautiously in my usual way, but fearlessly at the same time. I will keep fighting and will work hard to the end.
Please continue your kind cooperation and encouragement, so that fencing will one day be a successful case for sports in Japan.
Thank you.
