가장 성경적인 스포츠 ‘축볼’을 아시나요?

Tchoukball, a Scientific Sport With a Social Conscience

“The objective of human physical activities is not to make champions, but rather to help construct a harmonious society.” ‐‐ Dr. Hermann Brandt
“인간의 신체 활동 목표는 챔피언에 이르는 것이 아니라 조화로운 사회를 조성하는데 중점을 두어야 한다.” ‐ 닥터 헤르만 브랜트

Dr. Hermann Brandt (1897‐1972) was an eminent Swiss physician and physical educator. His work in the practical application of scientific knowledge as it relates to physical activities led him to develop the sport of tchoukball. After writing the book From Physical Education to Sport Through Biology, Dr. Brandt presented his now‐famous paper Critical Scientific Review of Team Sports. For this work he won the coveted Thulin Prize, a world competition on the theory of physical education organized by the International Physical Education Federation (FIEP). Dr. Brandt’s prize was presented at the University of Lisbon in 1970.
헤르만 브랜트 박사(1897‐1972)는 저명한 스위스 의사, 물리학 교육자다. 그는 신체 활동에 관련된 과학 지식의 실용적인 응용 프로그램에서 ‘축볼’이라는 스포츠 종목의 개발을 이끌어냈습니다. 스포츠를 통해 생물학 관련 체육 교육분야의 책을 쓰고, 그 이후 브란트 박사는 자신의 대표적인 글을 통해 팀 스포츠의 과학적 검토를 제시했습니다. 그는 세계 학자 모두가 동경하는 튤린 상을 수상했는데, 이 상은 세계 모든 학자들이 경쟁하며 받기를 원하는 것이었습니다. 브랜트 박사는 국제 체육 연맹 (FIEP)에 의해 체육 교육의 이론을 1970년에 리스본 대학에 제시 했습니다.

Brandt used a scientific approach in order to design rules advancing his educational objectives. Brandt wanted to create a team sport in which the players’ skills could be expressed without confrontations with opponents. He also wanted to teach through play the benefits of nonviolent action. Each rule was carefully adapted to human psychological, physiological, and social capabilities, and was calibrated to enhance challenging play within a totally non‐contact framework.
브랜트는 자신의 교육 목표를 발전시켜 나가면서 세부 규칙을 위해 과학적 접근 방식을 사용했습니다. 브랜트는 선수들의 능력이 상대와 대립하지 않고 충분히 표현 될 수 있는 팀웍을 어필하고 싶었습니다. 그는 또한 비폭력 행동의 장점을 게임을 통해 가르치고 싶었습니다. 각 규칙은 신중하게 인간의 심리적, 생리적, 사회적 기능에 맞추었고, 완전히 비접촉 프레임 활동 내에서 도전정신을 향상시키기 위해 조정되었습니다.

Tchoukball is a sport which requires a servant‐like attitude where all participants win. The team members are unified through one goal and vision through self‐sacrifice. During play, the participants emphasize fair‐play by following all rules, which promotes each participant to live a life of integrity and bring about a sense of peace in all areas of life. The sport requires strength, quickness, agility, hand‐eye coordination, and dynamic teamwork. Through Tchoukball, we are able to promote the importance of teamwork and instill visions and dreams into the youth of today. Thus, “love” becomes the focal point of all who participate in the sport.
축볼(Tchoukball)은 섬기는 스포츠 종목이며 참여하는 모두가 승리(win‐win)하는 경기입니다. 팀 내에서 서로를 격려하고 같은 꿈과 비전을 품으며 한 목표를 향해 달려갑니다. 경기에 임하는 내내 상대방을 존중하고 배려하며 법칙을 준수함으로 정직하고 공정한 사회를 이루어, 나아가 평화에도 기여합니다. 역동적인 신체 활동과 더불어 순발력, 민첩성, 협응성 등 고른 발달을 도모하기도 합니다. 축볼을 통해 강건한 공동체를 형성해나가고 꿈 많은 청소년들을 교육하기에도 매우 적합합니다. 모든 바탕에는 바로 ‘사랑’이 그 중심이 됩니다.

The Tchoukball Charter
Dr. Hermann Brandt also carefully wrote the Tchoukball Charter. The followings are small parts from the Charter and we urge you to read the Tchoukball Charter.
“On a personal level: the attitude of the player implies respect for every other player, for one’s own teammates and for all opposing team players; whether stronger or weaker than one’s self.
Tchoukball is open to players of all degrees of ability (natural or acquired), and one inevitably encounters players of every possible skill level.
In as much as each player is due proper respect and consideration, every player must adapt his own conduct (technical or tactical) to the circumstances of the moment.
On a team level: no outcome, whatever it might be, should be seen to affect one’s standing, individually or as a group, and it should lead under no circumstances to sectarian rivalry. From victory one can derive satisfaction and even joy, but never exaggerated pride.
The joy of winning should provide encouragement; whereas arrogance in victory carries within it the seeds of struggle for prestige, which is condemned as the source of common conflict among humans.
There is a sense of collective achievement within a team.
This binds the players together, it teaches appreciation and esteem for the values of others, and it creates a feeling of oneness in the common effort of a small group.
Each player’s major concern must be to strive for beauty of play.
The universal experience of sports can be summed up by the expression: “Elegant play begets elegant play.”
This attitude is the basis for the social interaction of tchoukball: it encourages one to aim for perfection while always avoiding any negative conduct toward the adversary.
This is more than just the rule of a game, it is a rule for conduct at all times, a psychological component of behavior, the basis of an individual’s personality.
The game provides social exercise through physical activity. By pooling the resources of all, everyone takes part, with the better players accepting the responsibility for teaching the less adept; therefore, there is no real championship, but rather a striving for perfection.
Remember, no set of rules can replace a player’s respect for one another and the Spirit of the Game.
