Blind Leading The Blind: Visually Impaired Judo Lesson For Sited

What Visually Impaired Judo Sited

Who says that you can't take just take a grip and fight. A visually Impaired Judo player has been doing it for many years.

Those who read my blog will know that one of my pet hates is the patter-cake game that goes on at the beginning of almost every judo match these days. You know what I mean. Each Judoka tries to take their grip and gets slapped away by the other player who then, in turn, tries to take a grip only to have their hand slapped away and so on until the referee calls a halt or someone eventually gets a grip.
