Visitors from afar. University, Sport and a little Budo

photo 2We were delighted to spend some time this week with Prof. Wada from Japan at SABEL Labs.
Prof. Wada is from Kagoshima on the island of Kyushu in Japan. He is from the National Institute of fitness and Sports in Kanoya, one of only two in Japan. The university supports a range of sports as well as traditional Japanese Budo (martial arts) – for which Kagoshima is somewhat famous.
We had some very interesting discussions about the handling of time series biomechanics and performance data and we look forward to his return in the near future, perhaps for an extended stay.
