CLASSIFICATION IN PARA JUDO

This is a brief overview of the sport and is in no way legally binding. In all cases the sport specific classification rules will take precedence. Should this page be out of date please contact classification@paralympic.org.

Judo is exclusively for athletes with a vision impairment. 

 

CLASSES

To be eligible, athletes have less than 10 per cent visual acuity remaining or a visual field restricted to 40 degrees diameter. 

A red circle on the sleeve of their Judogi indicates an athlete who is completely blind. 

Athletes compete in weight categories independent of their vision impairment.
