Judo Canada: Western Canada RTCM Update

A) LTDM: Long Term Developmental Model Tips for Parents Follow these tips to help your child get the most out of their sport experience. Girls and Boys all ages and stages - Talk to your child about their interests. Find out what physical activities or sports appeal to them. - Recognize and respect your child’s reasons for playing a sport or practicing a physical activity. They might want to compete for medals and titles, or they might simply want to have fun and socialize through activity. - Be positive when supporting your child, regardless of results. (Research has shown that children retreat from activity when their parents become demanding about results!) - Support your child’s activities as a parent, not as a 24-hour coach. Your role is to assist with transportation, good nutrition, rest and balanced lifestyle. - Support your child’s coaches and instructors. If you have questions or concerns other than physical safety, approach them when they are not busy coaching or instructing. - Your child might pursue extra interests outside sport and physical activity, and things can get busy in a hurry. Help them to balance their time according to their best interests. - Educate yourself on good nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits for your child. Consult sport and health websites, books magazines and videos, and ask your child’s coach or instructor for guidance.
Quotes: Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919, Scottish-American industrialist)

F) Sport Science
Cardio Training for Judo Judo is such a dynamic sport that makes it very hard to train for just one certain component. We need a lot of different styles of fitness covering all energy systems. Some opponents are all about speed so the fight is based around aerobic fitness while others are slow and all strength so the fight then spills over into the anaerobic category. To make it even worse in major competitions you may have to fight up to 5 times in 1 day or more. Jimmy Pedro in 2004 Olympics had 7 fights in 1 day. This requires a lot of physical fitness (especially in the repechage) but more so, recovery after intense exercise is the key
