(Hospital 11) Yes, they're merely taking an oath


I know this might look funny, but this "taking an oath" takes place a lot in Japan. Almost at the beginning of any sporting events, one or two participants will swear to abide by the sportsmanlike conduct throughout an event.
Having one of the arms extended like this might resemble a certain European historic figure(around WWII) but as far as I know, there's no connection between the two.

  1. Tidbit of info, they used to do a salute for the Pledge of Allegiance that way in the USA in the late 1800's until WWII. That's where the Nazii's in Germany originally got their idea for their salute.

    The salute for the Pledge of Allegiance was changed for obvious reasons after the US entered the war.

  3. Thanks a lot!!!!

    Info: The Nazi salute is derived from the Roman salute and from ancient gatherings of Germanic peoples, so no worries, it has nothing to do with sports.

  7. People connect the arm raising to that figure too much, in fact that figure stole the whole arm raising from the roman empire and it has more meaning then the WW-II figure. People are just obsessed with that whole history.

    Besides that point, another great sub, but kind of a strange event they are doing there.
    Thanks for the time and effort.
