Foil Fencing Yuki Ota Cup

"I want to support children’s healthy physical and mental health through fencing!" In support of this fervent desire of the Morinaga employee and foil fencer Yuki Ota—silver medalist at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and gold medalist at the 2015 World Fencing Championships—Morinaga holds a foil fencing championship for children. Planned and produced by Yuki Ota, this event brings together elementary school students in grades 3 through 6 from around Japan while conveying the importance of sports and attraction of fencing through group competitions, special matches, and talk shows.
