Educational Guidelines


Detailed guidelines for my classes are included in the SYLLABUS pages of Toyo University. My principal ideas of teaching sports at university are as follows:

  1. The attendance rate of the class is an important point of evaluation. However, it is not enough just to participate and not showing an active and supportive contribution!
  2. Beginners should not worry about their insufficient skill level. Beginners with a positive attitude and willingness to learn are very welcome!
  3. The communication measure of the class is an essential method of teaching. Therefore students are encouraged to approach the teacher in multiple (English, German, Japanese) - especially foreign languages!
  4. Please talk always honestly about worries and problems to the teacher. You can have a variety of remedies in response to a straightforward consultation!
  5. Physical education and sports is not just “moving the body”. It involves also willingness, thoughtfulness and emotional states as e.g. winning and losing. Please take attention and be aware while you are moving!
