Moving Minds Since 1949.

Since the beginning our purpose has been to help people to achieve a Sound Mind in a Sound Body. Our founder, Kihachiro Onitsuka, saw that sport and movement had the power to lift spirits, project positivity and propel people and whole communities forward. We still believe this.

Today this is more relevant than ever before as stress and anxiety reach record levels. We know that sport and activity can benefit our minds. Our goal is to support more people to experience the positive impact of movement not just on the body, but also on the mind.

Discover more about how movement can help you to achieve a sound mind in a sound body, helping you to calm your mind, diffuse stress and improve resilience.

From Japan to the world.
