BSF Asia started its Blind Judo program back in 2013 together with Dria Raba Blind Institute in Denpasar.This is the first program of this sort anywhere in Indonesia let alone Bali.
With the enthustiastic support of Dria Raba’s director Ibu Dayu,and the Judo Coach Pak Made of the Bali Police Judo coach ,a group of visually impaired youth pioneered this new sport.
As BSF Founder Rodney Holt and creator of the Blind Judo program indicates, “Far and above the inherent objectives of all physical and sporting activities, it represents for the visually impaired boys, a means of escape from a sometimes sedentary existence and from the isolation often imposed by a disability. For blind persons and those with low vision, Judo can be instrumental in (re)attaining independence of movement and in developing physical capacities which permit better adaptation to everyday life. Judo can contribute to these objectives in three sectors: motor, psychological and social".
Other martial arts program to include Karate and Fencing.
