Martial Arts

All Para-Judo athletes with a visual impairment compete together in one class in the appropriate weight category, regardless of classification. This means that a blind athlete (B1) will compete against partially sighted athletes (B2 or B3), provided they are in the same weight category. The art of Judo requires strength, stamina and focus as each judoka battles against a combatant in a five-minute match, using a number of required techniques. There are events for both men and women.
