Sports injury awareness

In sport, even when a large number of children is exposed to sports injuries, people are unbelievably poorly aware of health issues.

Hockey, soccer, volleyball, and martial arts cause permanent disabilities to very young children.

For some reason, sports organizations, sports leaders and sports doctors hush and hide these problems, or at least remain silent about them.

For some reason, studies on young people's sports injuries are difficult to find.

This issue should be openly studied and discussed so that people could make their own choices. Discussion is also needed about the poor and selfish management by old men, corruption, and the culture that is making financial use of athletes.

Thus parents and young athletes would at least know what risks or inevitable injuries are involved in certain sports.
