SSE networking event


An SSE networking event was held on July 6th, in Isahaya City, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan.

From 2005, the Institute of SSE (ISSE) has held SSE classes for elderly living independently in Isahaya City, Nagasaki Prefecture. Each class lasts for 3 months including 10 sessions. Elderly enjoyed SSE and arranged the original SSE form by adding a local Bon dance music. They named it "Non-noco exercise." From the end of the 3-month SSE classes, most classes transited autonomy groups and continued SSE. Now, 5 years has passed.

The ISSE celebrated the anniversary of 5-year autonomy SSE activities. The number of autonomy groups in Isahaya City had been 35. On the day, about 300 elderly from the 35 groups attended the SSE networking event and showed other groups their achievements of SSE performance.

In Isahaya City, recently new 5 groups were born. In total, more than 400 elderly have enjoyed SSE.
