Here I am introducing the new sports I devised.
Propulsive Football (PROBALL in short) is the games that take football as a roots, considering gender equality, diversity, safety and etc. In addition to "men & women", combinations such as "adults & children", "people without disabilities & people with disabilities" can be combined as well. The rules are designed in the way that you can enjoy as well as seriously compete. If you have played association football (soccer), you can participate without hesitation. I think that affinity with grassroot sports and school sports is also high.
The league is getting established in Japan. Activities are launched in Barcelona, Spain, the major centre of football in the world, and it’s also highly rated by local football people. Further promotion to the wider public is needed to establish the recognition of the sports. It is important to travel and meet the people in sports sector as well.
The web page is as follows.
The highlights of activities at Barcelona and Japan are as follows. You can see the points of sports in a short time.
(In Youtube, there are uncut footages containing detailed explanation by voice.)
A high level of social significance of Propulsive Football, that everyone can interact beyond genders, generations, handicaps, etc. and enjoy as well as compete seriously and safely, has been demonstrated again in actual match.
It is advantageous on the offensive side because relatively space can be secured in the area where the ball is. Since field players can also use hands in the air, it is more dynamic and the score rate in the air near the goalmouth also increases. There are many scoring opportunities, and highly entertaining sports for players and audiences.
While creating the mixed codes, efforts were made to enhance safety without losing the attractiveness of football, and we have provided the rules as described below.
Safety enhancement measures:
1, Boots with metal studs and/or blades are prohibited to reduce injuries due to stamping. Playing with training shoes is also allowed.
2, Heading is prohibited and hitting by hand is introduced instead. This greatly reduces the possibility of head collision in the air. (It would also be a training to make physical contact without fear in the air.)
3, Since the centre line is introduced and men & women (adults & children) are divided to the right and left, men & women (adults & children) wouldn’t collide in the theory of the rules. Therefore, it is safe even if everyone plays seriously.
4, Although both men & women (adults & children) are allowed being the goalkeepers by the rule, selection of the goalkeepers should be made with attention to the safety as they may receive strong shots.
How to count points for the matches:
The point system:
Draw with goal(s). 2
Draw without goal(s). 1
As mentioned above, we set up the rules, so that everyone who will participate can enjoy it to the utmost.
The international rules with the assumption of international matches for the mixed of men & women are as follows.
This project facilitates people in the community interact with each other regardless of genders and generations. It is convinced that this will contribute greatly to the development of society by further deepening the team's ties, family ties and ties of adults and children in the communities.
In the match, men & women (adults & children) are positioned on the right and left, and pass each other at times and move in conjunction as 1 team. In order to carry out the match smoothly and score, it is necessary for men & women (adults & children) to have great combination, common understanding, cooperativeness and teamwork. Also, men & women (adults & children) can naturally learn the importance of cooperating with each other beyond genders and generations and deepen the mutual understanding and ties by exercising together without sparing effort towards the same goal.
It is the purpose and the dream of this project to make the world better by realising social objectives while enjoying such as gender equality, diversity and safety of sports through the exchanges in serious matches.
The support for the Propulsive Football project would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much for consideration.

Football Manager, Coach.
Coaching football for children in troubled area of London. Some players had really bright talents. However many of kids in the team were affected by local community and its environment, and had problems with behaviors. Evidently very few parents ever visited or attended their kids to our matches. We’ve had a lot of challenges but it was very meaningful to keep young generations out of street troubles. And also happy to have been able to bring up young kids developing into Academy of professional clubs.
