40 years have passed since the first overseas Kumon Center opened in New York in 1974.
Kumon, which originated in Japan, is now studied by people in 49 countries and regions all around the world.

In this movie, you can see the spread of Kumon around the world.
You will get a sense of the universality of the Kumon Method by watching interviews of Kumon Instructors, students and their parents.

Kumon Student

“I want to become a ballet dancer. Kumon
makes you work a lot harder and practice every
day. It’s the same as in ballet.”


“Kumon helps to build self-confidence.
By doing something over and over,
it gets to the point where your child says,
‘OK, I can do this! I can read this!’”

Former Kumon Student

“I was a really lazy student.
But once I started Kumon, I changed.
I became more disciplined.”

Kumon Instructor

“Kumon seeks to develop the potential of children.
I enjoy helping each child discover that he or she
can really do it.”
