Nittaidai Survey

[Mony – Please check your emails for related documents to this news item] 

This is a survey request from Yagisawa Sensei of Nittaidai. As you know, the Nittaidai students visit an overseas country for their graduate programme (cultural and friendship exchange) and Hawaii has been their destination during the last few years.This programme has been on hold due to Covid for the last few years so they have come up with a different method of undertaking the graduate programme. The attached are a survey in which the students have come up with a promotional video covering the martial arts of their major.

They want to distribute it via their overseas connections and request people to participate in this survey. The participants don’t need to be martial arts followers. There are both Japanese and English versions attached (the second document is in English).

The URL to the survey is in the document. There are three sections:

  • pre-viewing survey (5-10 minutes)
  • video (approx 50 minutes showcasing a mix of traditional dances and martial arts)
  • post-viewing survey (5-10 minutes)

Please distribute and encourage your members & friends to participate in the survey.
