During his Judo training session, a 7-year-old boy yelled and asked for help after his practice partner and coached thrashed him multiple times. They slammed him 27 times!

Judo is a modern Japanese martial art. It is now more of a combat sport. Judo means “gentle way”, and has been in Japan since the late nineteenth century.

A seven-year-old boy in Taiwan was taking judo lessons for the past 2 weeks. He was a Super Mario fan and had a keen interest in sports. During one of his training sessions, his coach and his older classmate continued to practice their throws on this little boy until they put him in a coma. The coach did not let the practice partner stop.

During this training class, multiple times he called for help and screamed “my leg,” “my head” and “I don’t want it!”. However, the coach decided not to stop. The boy vomited too but his so-called training did not stop.

The boy went into a coma due to a severe brain haemorrhage secondary to repeated trauma. He needed artificial life support. His condition deteriorated and approximately 70 days later, his parents decided to unplug the machines. It was hard for them to see their son in this condition.

Doctors predicted that even if he would have survived, most likely he would have remained in the vegetative state.

The coach’s justifications, in his defence, were that he thought the boy was faking unconsciousness. Additionally, the coach also claimed that the child deliberately threw himself on the mat.

The coach was not licensed. However, he did not plead guilty in the court according to the sources.

The authorities charged the coach with physical assault and using a minor to commit a crime. Since the child lost his life, now the coach may face charges for murder. If the court finds him guilty he might be imprisoned for life or for a minimum of 7 years.

“In the East, it’s common to expect children to withstand difficulties and obey authority.”

But can obeying authorities take an innocent life? It seems so!
