Appreciation message after the 1st Annual Meeting of the Asian Society of Kinesiology (ACK2016)

I would like to thank everyone for participating in the Asia Conference on Kinesiology, 2016 (ACK2016) and the inaugural meeting of the Asian Society of Kinesiology (ASK).

In particular, I extend my deep gratitude to the thirty guest speakers who thoroughly participated in the process of successfully hosting the ACK2016 and establishing the ASK. I hope that their great services and contributions will be long remembered in the history of ASK.

I would also like to show my respect to the members of Preparatory Committee for the Foundation of the Asian Society of Kinesiology (PCFASK) who provided support in an effort to establish ASK, and the members of ASK who attended the inaugural meeting and elected me as the first president of ASK.

ACK2016 as the 1st Annual Meeting of ASK was held in conjunction with the 17th World Congress for Korean and Asian Kinesiologists. At these events, a total of 795 people participated, including 286 people at the ACK2016. There were presentations by 184 speakers at ACK2016 including a presentation by Dr. Kando Kobayashi who gave an adviser’s lecture.

The 2nd Annual Meeting of ASK, ACK2017 will be held from November 30 to December 4 this year at KEIMYUNG UNIVERSITY in Daegu, Korea.

To ensure the stability and advancement of ASK and facilitate effective preparations for future events, we have determined host locations for the future ACKs in advance: ACK2018 Taichung, Taiwan; ACK2019 Yokyakarta, Indonesia; ACK2020 Chonburi, Thailand; ACK2021 Stukuba, Japan.

I eagerly look forward to meeting with all of you once again at the 2nd Annual Meeting of ASK, ACK2017 in Daegu, Korea, and hope that you would continue joining us for other future events as well.

Thank you.

President, Asian Society of Kinesiology
