Student debating in the United States is quite familiar to Japanese students of debate. An increasing number of American textbooks are available here in Japan. There are exchange progms between Japanese and American debaters. We can even read a transcript of the American National Debate Tournament with extensive Japanese notes. But British debating is hardly noticed in Japan currently although many American textbooks do give some accounts of it. They have a national tournament in Britain, which was started by the influence of American debating.
