Our resource section is a great opportunity for us to share with you information, links, videos, contacts and ideas. This page is a working progress, so please bear with us while we compile as much useful information that we can to help parents, coaches and students.
Adaptive Judo Coaching Resources
Judo Assist Ireland's international expertise in adaptive judo has greatly contributed to the creation of a number of comprehensive adaptive judo coaching resources over the years. Below are some of these resources.
Special Olympics Judo Coaching Guide: The first of these resources is the new Special Olympics International Coaching Guide for Judo. This is the first time SO judo history that judo has its own coaching guide. The guide can be downloaded here Sports-Essentials-Judo-Coaching-Guide-2021-v2
Online Adaptive Judo Coaching Course: This online entry level adaptive judo coaching course is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, German and French. link can be found here http://adaptivejudo.com/lp-courses
Autjudo Best Practice Coaching Manual: The second important coaching resources is a result of our participation in the EU Erasmus+ Audjudo Research Project. As part of this project we were editors and co-writers of the Autjudo Best Practice Coaching Manual. This Manual is available in English, Spanish, Swedish and Italian. Click here to view and download
Autjudo Adaptive Judo Competition Guide: As a compliment to the Autjudo Best Practice manual we also produced an Adaptive Judo Competition Guide. This Guide can be viewed and downloaded here
Disability Information Modules
We have compiled a number of disability information modules that give the reader some insight into types of challenges that some people have to navigate on a daily basis. Most of the disabilities we have listed are common among students that take part in adaptive judo. I hope you will find the information helpful.
