The Modern 21st Century University, which is heir to its Persian and Arabic forebears and today is taking the place of what is known as the traditional university due to the need to increase speed of production and management of knowledge, should have not only a (higher) educational and scientific commitment and responsibility, but, unlike its predecessors, should also possesses a social function that is concerned not just with specific academic training of professionals for the development of society, but also with responsibility in the training of complete professionals, which will be especially beneficial for the development of the professionals themselves, and will also allow the optimization of social development.
In this sense, some of the sections of the Strategic Plans of today's universities cover their mission, vision, and of course, their values. The list of values is endless; some are general values as a public service institution (equality, solidarity, sustainability, autonomy, free and critical thinking, international development, etc.), while others refer to the products that they generate (personal and social development, achievement, teamwork, respect for the rules, tolerance, self-discipline, responsibility, etc.).
Starting now and in the lines that follow, we will try to highlight, analyze, and promote the values that universities have reserved to respond to the needs of its current students and future graduates, to whom, in addition to offering them the academic training that they require (based on the contribution of specific knowledge), must also be capable of offering them comprehensive training (individual and social training, based on complementary knowledge) by implementing a system made up of mechanisms to offer, reconcile, and recognize this non-specific training.
The practice of Physical Activity (PA) and Sports has always been related to a multitude of benefits associated with both the most individual aspects (psycho-biological) as well as the social or relational aspects of human beings. We are aware of a multitude of benefits for anatomical and physiological systems (motor, circulatory, glandular, nervous, cardio-respiratory systems, etc.), psychological functioning (self-esteem, stress tolerance, perceived quality of life, confidence, capacity for suffering and overcoming challenges, responsibility and respect for norms, concentration, etc.), social functioning (capacity for relationships, teamwork, socialization of the individual, solidarity, trust, formation of identity, etc.) and in general, health-related aspects (improved cardiac function, lower blood pressure, reduced levels of toxins, balanced body weight , etc.) and finally, slowing of the aging process.
This makes it possible to confirm how the social function of today's universities seeks and pursues a series of added values (in addition to the specific and academic values), to which the universities have strategically committed themselves, and many of which are common and shared with the objectives and goals that can be obtained through the practice of PA and Sports.
Sports and the university have begun their path together, complementing each other, responding to each other, and using each other, but we are not yet ready to confirm and affirm that they are now holding hands and moving forward as one.
In Europe, the US, Central America, South America, Australia, and Canada mainly, the organization and management model for what we know as university sports is being studied, analyzed, and researched. An analysis of legislative frameworks, the role of their directors, and the agents involved in their organization, in other words, the elements that form part of each model, and the analysis of the function and objectives that are sought, offers us valuable information to be understood and to compare the meaning that PA and sports have for each one of the aforementioned models.
In these models, and with respect to the concept of university sports, we can confirm the absence of international unanimity in regard to its definition, making it impossible to generalize whether the meaning is associated with sports at universities, sports for university students, sports for the university community, sports in the university age range (28 years of age), etc. For example, in Spain, it refers to sports played by university students and organized by the Sports Services of each University, including not only competitive sports, but also frequently aiming at the execution of recreational sports activities to use leisure time in a healthy manner. While it is clear that this definition conforms to what in our opinion we would accept as logical and true, there are more than a few countries that differ and that do not conform exactly to this concept.
The first step would therefore be to unify and accept a single specific and concrete concept, which
would later allow us to reflect and debate, in order to carry out global projects that optimize the
objectives that we are proposing today. This would allow us to respond to the need to articulate, for example, at the international level, academic recognition for university sports. The activities that we are going to include under the heading of university sports must be clearly and specifically defined; in other words, the activities that will be open to the association of academic recognition in higher education. In this sense, the additional values designed by the Modern University, which coincide with the intrinsic values and benefits and provided by the practice of PA and Sports, may be modulated by the different governmental administrations, and by the university institutions that consider it and desire it.
In Spain, despite the fact that the last two General Acts of Parliament regarding universities (LRU and LOU) show an express absence in the articles on university sports (in the LOU, only one additional article 17, titled On sports activities in universities), the current Act from 2007, which modifies the LOU from 2001 at least offers Title XIV devoted to Sports and university extension. This same Act, stipulates in article 46.2i that it is a right of university students to obtain academic recognition for their participation in cultural, sports, theater activities in the university (this aspect is also covered in the articles of the draft of the University Student Statutes, currently being prepared by the Spanish government), and Royal Decree 1393/200, on the organization of official university instruction, limits ECTS credits to a maximum of 6 out of the total credits of the course of study. This is therefore the recognition, in legislation itself, of the formative value of physical-sports activities, and it indicates the importance that the implantation of this culture of PA and Sports has for this social and age group.
By virtue of university independence, and normally through the approval of their Governing Boards (in the case of Spain), these formative, academic and complementary rights of recognition for sports activities have been developed in regulations; however, these regulations have been based on heterogeneous and even divergent criteria (arbitrary or not, and more or less on target), rather than on an overall plan of common and convergent objectives, in the specific case of PA and Sports, and they should be promoted and carried out based on fulfillment of their social function as Universities in the service of a common society with common needs.
At the urging of governments of different countries that are aware of the aforementioned situation, initiatives such as the recently presented Integrated Plan for PA and Sports in Spain, have been initiated. These now express the concern and necessary attention to PA and Sports within the university environment, with the corresponding sector report including the proposal to prepare government directives for the development of sports programs in the university, which would be promoted by the institutions themselves in order to bring this type of activity to the largest number of people possible, and to allow and facilitate the possibility of students opting for the recognition of the 6 ECTS credits (objective number 6 of the aforementioned University sector plan).
The success of this measure, adds the report, can only result from the acceptance of the values (which we mentioned earlier) provided by physical activity and sports for comprehensive training, quality of life, and health of the students in this stage of their lives, also allowing the creation of habits that will endure in the future. The consequences of this measure translate into the fact that the people responsible for generating the sports offering will have to regulate, organize, and systematize these activities so that students can complete them, benefit from their specific programs, complement their higher academic education, and above all, obtain direct academic recognition, regardless of their chosen courses of study.
In general lines, the offering in universities (European, US, etc.) is very heterogeneous, and depends to a large extent on the role that the universities themselves give to PA and Sports, as either a core element or in a merely anecdotal role. The organization of athletic departments, the organizational diagrams that make up the units responsible for managing these activities, the professionalism of the directors, the percentage of the university budget allocated, the university's own reference in the area of sports, and many other factors, determine and condition the offerings at both public and private universities.
However, and although there is a high degree of variability in terms of numbers and types, universities offer an enormous range of physical-sports activities, which could be summarized as: sports activities focused on competition, sports schools, expressive activities, activities in nature, health-related activities (fitness), recreational, leisure, and relaxation activities, courses and seminars with a physicalsports orientation, etc., and this is the current situation because modern universities have decided to change the model, in the same way that the people who form part of the universities have been calling for.
Having reached this point, we can go so far as to say that in many universities, it has not been possible to execute this new concept in a coordinated manner with their respective administrations because the general legislation of many countries (including Spain) has not yet understood that even though certain aspects have been adapted and modulated over the last 20 years, the University is also capable of, and has the responsibility to respond to and promote PA and Sports as a public service, for both the comprehensive personal development of the student, as well as the social development of citizens.
Returning to the subject of the relationship between the offering of physical-sports activities and
academic recognition, the heterogeneity of the proposals has become obvious and is now a reality.
Some universities merely provide academic recognition in association with national and/or international participation and representation in sports competitions (this recognition may even be increased depending on the place in which the person finishes in the competition); others have included less demanding participation (local leagues or competitions) in their regulations as a requirement for this recognition, and in others, we have found that mere participation in programs and activities associated with physical activity, leisure, free time, what we understand as sports for all, etc., are now associated with academic recognition in the regulations.
To summarize, we can affirm that in the absence of general organization or directives for actions,
universities, based on their independence and the absence of common criteria, have opted to determine for themselves what is considered to be university sports activities, and how to recognize that participation by students for the purposes of associating it and granting it its academic value.
Without these common directives, and to guarantee that the academic recognition conforms to the expectations that may be generated by the practice of physical-sports activities in the university, greater coordination will be required between the areas of the universities that are responsible for the organization of sports and the responsible authorities in the area of academic organization, to design the necessary and pertinent strategies for the association, conciliation, compatibility, and recognition among these types of activities and higher academic education. In this particular aspect, the change of the student profile itself (increase in the percentage of women university students, as well as students with some type of disability) has forced a realignment of the physical-sports activity programs, in general more focused on other profiles.
In some cases (as in the case of Spain), these general directives were designed, in past laws, only in the aspects related to the national and international projection of university sport, in the sense of making top-level athletes and studies compatible. Currently, there is still nothing covered specifically with respect to the rest of the offering, something which is quite clearly demonstrated by the interest shown by administrations in regard to the type of university sports activities are of interest to them.
In this exact case, it is very well known that the purpose of external sports competition programs may be moving away from the objectives of the university as a public service.
It is therefore urgently necessary to open a serious debate in national and international university associations, in the different governments (and structures that make them up) with powers in this area, and in the agents who are ultimately responsible, the universities themselves, in regard to the need to legislate in this field, while at the same time requesting a more-than-essential coordination and cooperation between the administrations and the institutions.

Portuguese Government Acknowledges the Level of FISU Events

Friday, 18 June 2010
Theme : Multisports
Membership Base : Member Association News

Portuguese university sports is celebrating a remarkable event in its history, with the publication of the legal acknowledgment of FISU Summer and Winter Universiades as sports competitions that allow the official recognition of elite athlete status – a condition in which any high performance athlete in Portugal is considered worthy of public legal support for the prosecution of his/her sports career.
The approved diploma classifies all sport events and defines the criteria to access the categories described by the Portuguese Sports Institute for high performance careers. The inclusion of university sports events in this list is a unique accomplishment that, on one side, recognises the investment made by student-athletes, universities and sports federations, and at the same time acknowledges the level of FISU events as being comparable to the highest quality in the world.
The referred diploma, signed on the 10th June by the Secretary of State for Youth and Sports Laurentino Dias, also allows for the recognition of some World University Championships as high level competitions and therefore also worthy for elite athlete status recognition.
A significant number of initiatives are planned to celebrate FADU’s 20th anniversary in 2010. Portuguese University student-athletes will be surprised with a few more challenges to encourage their full engagement with sport, University Sport and their academic activities.

History of savate by Athletic Scholarships (NCAA and NAIA sports)

Source: http://www.athleticscholarships.net/martial-arts-savate.htm

Savate as a martial art was devised in the last century, and its origins and relationship to other Martial Arts is unclear. There are stories about French sailors learning techniques in Eastern ports, bringing them back to France and integrating them with local foot fighting and fencing techniques.

The modern history of Savate is very well documented. Pictures dating from the time of Louis 14th depict a man defending himself against an armed assailant with a kick. It is also documented that in the 1790’s, sailors in the south of France practiced a form of foot fighting known as “chausson”. This fighting system involved using the feet in a wide variety of kicks while one hand remained on the ground for balance.
Over the years, proponents of the art refined different styles of chausson and added open-handed strikes and defenses, and by 1820 “Savate” had became the martial art we know today.
"French Boxing-Savate” was founded in 1970 in France. It consists mainly of precise striking with the hands, low foot striking, and appropriate defense techniques. The hand techniques are much the same as boxing. Special attention is paid to development of soft and elegant movements.
Savate primarily encompasses kicking techniques somewhat similar to Tae Kwon Do or Karate. the art includes punching techniques from Western Boxing and stick fighting techniques based on French rapier fighting. It is very stylized and more extended than most Eastern kicking arts.

Taekwondo Classified as Category 2, Optional Sport at Commonwealth Games

Mr. Anthony Ferguson (first from left), president of the Caribbean Taekwondo Federation, makes a presentation on taekwondo for officials of the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) at the Langham Hotel in London, the United Kingdom on June 7, 2010. The CGF recently informed the WTF of its decision to classify taekwondo as a category 2, optional sport, meaning that taekwondo can be put on the official program of the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the earliest.

Taekwondo has been classified as a category 2, optional sport at the Commonwealth Games. The Olympic sport of taekwondo, thus, stands a good chance of being on the official program of the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the earliest.

The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) recently sent a letter to the World Taekwondo Federation on June 14, 2010 to inform the worlds taekwondo governing body of its decision to classify taekwondo as a category 2 sport.

The CGF has three classifications of sports: core sports (Category 1), optional sports (Category 2), and recognized sports (Category 3). Under the current CGF regulations, the Commonwealth Games must include a minimum of 10 core sports on their program and they can then include up to an additional seven from a list of optional sports, with a maximum of four team sports on their program.

The CGF decision came just five days after a four-member WTF delegation made a sport presentation for the CGF officials in London on June 7. Among the WTF delegates were Mr. Philippe Buedo, chairman of the WTF Games Committee; Mr. Anthony Ferguson, president of the Caribbean Taekwondo Federation; and Dr. William Darlington, secretary general of the Commonwealth Taekwondo Union.

On behalf of the CGF, I write to thank you for the detailed submissions provided and the subsequent representations by your colleagues in London last week pertaining to the above, said Mr. Michael Hooper, chief executive officer of the CGF, in a letter dated on June 14, 2010 and sent to the World Taekwondo Federation.

The CGF CEO continued to say in his letter, In approving the classification of taekwondo as a category 2 sport, both the Federations Sport Committee and the Executive Board were pleased to note the ongoing commitment being made by the sport through its development programs across the Commonwealth, as well as the innovative changes being made through the sport presentation aspects of the competition.

By becoming a category 2 sport, taekwondo is now eligible for inclusion by prospective candidate cities within their selection of up to 7 additional sports from the broader list of category 2 sports, i.e. additional to the 10 core sports and you should now look to work with candidate cities for future editions of the Games as they develop their bid proposals, the CGF head said.

The Commonwealth Games, which date back to 1930, are a unique, world-class, multi-sport event which is held every four years.

The next Commonwealth Games, the 19th edition, are scheduled to take place in New Delhi, India on Oct. 3-14, 2010, with 17 sports on the official program. The 20th Commonwealth Games are to be held in Glasgow, Scotland in 2014. Hambantota in Sri Lanka and the Gold Coast in Australia are competing to win the right to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

On the CGF decision, Mr. Ferguson, who also serves as vice president of the Pan American Taekwondo Union, said in his letter to the WTF, "This is not only wonderful, but inspiring indeed. I did not expect the decision would come so soon."

"Better still that we went straight to Category Two. During our presentation, they (CGF officials) joked that we should probably go straight to Category 2 rathe than three," Mr. Ferguson said. "That it in fact happened this way is a testament to the vision and work of the WTF and that of our leader (WTF President Chungwon Choue). I have no doubt that in time, we would become Category One."

"It vindicates what we were saying in that people only have to be informed of the wonderful work of the WTF to be impressed," he continued to say. "Clearly they (CGF officials) were impressed by the Taekwondo Peace Corps and subsequent proposal of a Sport Peace Corps; electronic chest protectors and video replay system, and the various uses for which the Reform Fund is intended."

In a meeting with CGF officials both at the 2008 SportAccord Conention in Athens, Greece and at the 2009 SportAccord Convention in Denver, the United States, the WTF expressed its interest in joining the Commonwealth Games.

Several international sports organizations, which are responsible for the operation of multi-sports games, have decided in recent months to put taekwondo on their official programs.

At its General Assembly on April 26, 2010 in Dubai, the International Masters Games Association (IMGA) announced that taekwondo will be on the official program of the 2011 European Masters and the 2013 World Masters Games. The International University Sports Federation (FISU) decided at its Executive Board meeting in November 2009 to put taekwondo on the official program of the 2017 Summer Universiade and onwards as a compulsory sport. Taekwondo will also be an official sport at the 2013 Mediterranean Games and onwards.

Manuela Massari, Italian National Team

Written by Emanuele Toti (traduction: Agnès Aubert)

manuela_thumb.jpg
Who are you?
My name is Manuela Massari, 28 years old, from Rome, Italy. I study and work: I am graduating in Sports Science, and I teach swimming and aquagym in a Sport Centre.
I train 6 times a week in my club, the Ecole de Combat, in Rome, with my coach (and Italian National Team coach) Marco Gilotti.

My titles:
National:
* National Champion Savate Assaut 2004-2005-2006-2007-2008
* National Champion kick boxing light 2004-2005-2007
* National Champion (Amateurs) k-1 style 2005


International:
* 3rd Place in the World Savate Assaut Championships 2004
* 1st place in the University World Savate Assaut Championships 2005
* 3rd Place in the European Savate Assaut Championships 2005
* Vice-European Champion Combat 2006
* 3rd place World Combat Championships 2007
* European Champion Combat 2008
* European Champion Savate Assault 2009

How did you start doing Savate?
I came across savate by chance. I was practicing karate at the time, and, since my gym was closed during the summer, I went to train with my boyfriend (Alessandro Caruso, Vice European Champion, Combat) in Marco Gilotti`s club: I have never stopped since then!

Special techniques ?manuela_masari_1.jpg
My favourites techniques?
All the kicks: fouette, chasse, reverse tournant!

What do you think you have achieved in Savate?
I think I still have a long way to go, but I`m glad I have reached a good level, at least for an Italian athlete.

Sport - Is it your passion or necessity?
Sport is a passion, I started when I was 3, and never stopped, and I love it so much that I made it my job. Without passion you can`t get to a good level, especially here, in Italy, where you can`t make a living out of savate, and you have to pay all your travel expenses!

What do you think about the international development in Savate?
These last few years the International Federation has done a great job in promoting savate all over the world, and we can see the result in the international competitions, where the average level is constantly rising.

What are your future prospects?
My greatest dream would be to open my own club, have children and teach them savate! I`d like so much to start a children's savate course!

What is your life like outside savate?
I'm a very active person, and outside the gym I`m like any other girl my age...I like snowboarding, going out with friends, the usual things.

What is the biggest influence you had in Savate?
My boyfriend, without him I would have never started!

Who are your favourite athletes?
The athletes I admire are all French: Ismaila Sarr, Amri Madani and Erika Hulle, with whom I had the honour and pleasure to fight more than once.

I would also like to thank a few people if it`s possible.
Thanks to my coach, Marco Gilotti, who`s been with me all these years, to my boyfriend, Alessandro Caruso, still my favourite sparring partner, to my friends, who helped me in the hardest moments, and last but not least to my first karate coach, Franco Massimi who was with me in my first competitions and taught me to respect the others.

And of course thanks to the International Federation for honouring me with this interview!!

How to : Money laundering- EU funds

You have an influental father in law or some other important relative?
Is he the main representative for scienece and knowledge organisation in your country?
If so, go to next step.
Find a fantastic club with reputation of drug dealing activities. Be careful. They ussualy don't adress this way :).
Ussualy they protect themselves with high annual membership fees. But this is just a small trick of accounting. They use it to launder and to legalize all the money they collect on streets (when they put it on their account as memberships). And this is easier with higher memberships.

So - tell your father in law that you have good company and that he can win on some public EU tender with your club for preserving European heritage.
OK. Next step is (when you have some 50.000 EUR for example) to sign a contract with your new friend's club to rent their gym for your historical activities that improoves your national identity. Hell yes. But take care: In this case your friends will rise the prices to rent their gym as you would rent Taj Mahal.
So: High gym rentals.

How much money they will return you in cash is just a way of tax levels in your country. Take care and good luck with your buddies.

British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS)

Chris Holmes, Director of Paralympic Integration at London 2012 will open the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) annual conference this year at Keele University.



The BUCS Championships Highlights 2010

BUCS Conference is the annual gathering for university staff and elected officers who manage sport and physical activity opportunities across 150 higher education institutions in the UK. Taking place from Tuesday 13 – Friday 16 July, the conference will tackle the subject of University Challenge: Delivering more for less, looking at how universities can offer a full and diverse sporting programme to their students, staff and communities in a tough economic climate.

As the opening guest speaker, Holmes will bring his experience of competing as a student at the University of Cambridge all the way through to representing Great Britain at the Barcelona, Atlanta and Sydney Paralympic Games where he won nine gold medals.

Chris Holmes


Holmes said: “I’m delighted to be speaking at this year’s BUCS Conference. Higher education sport has a vital role to play in encouraging people of all abilities to participate as well as nurturing the nation’s elite sports men and women of the future. On a personal level, I know how important it is to get the right relationship between higher education and sport because I was studying at university when I won six gold medals at Barcelona 1992. Although moving higher education sport forward is all the more challenging in a difficult economic climate, the opportunity remains. I hope the events and discussions on delivering more for less will enable and inspire many more student athletes to fulfil their undoubted potential in the build up to London 2012 and beyond.”

Conference places are available to book at www.bucs.org.uk/conference. Holmes will be speaking on Tuesday 13 July at 14.30.
