ADAPTIVE Judo

Judo is a Paralympic sport for individuals who have are blind or visual impairment. Judokas can start off with their hands on their opponent's shoulder instead of standing from a distance. How at MOvement Park, we will always do our best to include all disabilities with these sessions where possible. We will use lots of demonstrations. break moves down into smaller parts, and adapt the rules as needed

Persons with permanent disabilities experience opportunities and challenges in pursuing sport and physical activity. At Movement Park we offer various methods to accommodate each individual's needs for increased activity and greater achievement.

Everyone should have the opportunity to learn sports skills and become active for life, whether they choose to pursue competition or not. For this reason, almost all of the principles behind Movement Park for able-bodied athletes are applicable to athletes with disabilities

Movement Park considers additional factors in the delivery of sport and physical activity so that participants with disabilities can follow a pathway to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle.

Movement Park includes everyone, regardless of any ability or circumstance. With a positive attitude and a little ingenuity, any activity can be made enjoyable for all. Please see our specially designed inclusion sessions on a Saturday afternoon that run parallel, modified and discrete sessions for people who may find our mainstream classes challenging.

“We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.”
