This event is a one-on-one competition between children and adults!
They will challenge their weakest technique and battle to see who can clear it first.

The children's group and the adults' group are divided into two groups, each playing one person against the other! The order is decided by drawing lots.

Children and adults gather!
The order of competition will be drawn by lot!

In the first match, the children's group won handily, 7:3!

Gradually, the adult group showed their strength and the competition continued.
In the second match, the adult group won 6:4!

Experience battles that you don't usually get to experience, such as one-on-one battles between children and adults (parent-child battles)!
The joy is palpable when a child is able to beat an adult, and the children's smiles burst out!
The entire hall is filled with cheers of joy and smiles!

One-on-one match!
Serious competition!
We share the joy of success stories!
We share the joy of overcoming a difficult skill!

Kisuki technique!

We planned this competition because we wanted children to experience the joy and pleasure of success, and for adults to have time to interact with the children. The joy and fun of "I did it! is the key to progress! said Representative Kishi.
