Judoka with a Disability

Judo programs provide a safe and stimulating environment in which all judokas can develop to their full potential.

The practice of judo for visually impaired or deaf athletes includes a competitive component.  Parajudo, where visually impaired athletes compete in designated weight categories, is part of the Paralympic Games program. Deaf judo compete as part of the World Deaf Judo Championships and Deaflympics under the umbrella of the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf. 

Judo Canada and Judo Ontario advocate inclusive attitudes and encourage clubs to adopt approaches that promote the full participation for all, so the benefits of our sport can be experienced by as many Canadians as possible.
