Judo For the Blind!!!

Hi!!!

This is Jack Bauer from Philippines. I've been playing judo since 2004 and I'm really enjoying it. Could please share some tips on how a blind judoka develop his/her skills in playing judo?
Your information will help me improve my skills and prepare competitions worldwide.

Re:Judo For the Blind!!!



I don't know what HTML means. Anyway, There are jillions of coaches that would be glad to coach vision impaired youth (and older folkes) in judo, wrestling and other hands on contact sports, but all my years of coaching, I have never had a blind person (or parent or guardean) asking to take part in hands on contact sports. Get of the ass and ask the local coach or AD---Coach Charley, Hana High, Maui
