This Games Manual has been developed to assist coaches in the art of
concept coaching. The concept is to use game playing as a fun, innovate and creative way of introducing judo to young children and children and adults with additional needs such as learning disabilities, physical restrictions and social disabilities (autism, ADHD etc.).
Using games as a developmental tool enables the learner to participate at a level which is comfortable for them and to have a positive and fun experience in doing so.
This manual includes a series of games and exercises to assist with coordination, balance, muscle development, basic gymnastics skills and of course judo throwing and grappling techniques. It is designed to make learning fun and is fully adaptable to cater for the needs and abilities of a wide cross section of participants.
The manual cost just €10 + €2 P&P and can be posted anywhere in the world.
All profits from this manual go back into further development of our Special Needs/Autism Judo programm, so by helping yourself you are also helping others.
I hope you and your students enjoy playing the games as much as we did creating them. All feedback/suggestions and ideas are always welcome.
