A mini ropes course and play area, that I made at the back of my school, its very physically challenging、 and when I planned it I tried to make it so the children use a huge range of physical skills as possible. Japan is a place where kids are told not to climb trees because its too dangerous, (My daughter “Sky” got told off for running up an empty slide by an Obasan in our local park, because its “too dangerous”) and children in Japan spend way too much time watching T.V. and playing video games. I grew up in the countryside and have a strong passion for outdoor adventure. My students understand the fun that can be had with nature and the outdoors, and they know its worth the risk of the occasional cut or bruise. Most of the kids in this video are 3 years old.
