Coordinative movement skills in judo refer to the ability of an individual athlete to perform a suitable action at the correct moment while quickly adapting to the constantly fluctuating competitive environment ( Miarka, Branco, Vecchio, Calmet, & Franchini, 2015 ). Notational analysis is concerned

, Lech, Jaworski, & Ambrozy, 2012 ). Typically, judo bouts occur in the vertical position ( Franchini & Sterkowicz, 2000 ), requiring athletes to adapt their posture quickly in reaction to combat situations. This is particularly important when performing techniques used during practice or competition

Adolescent judo athletes who train in tropical climates may be in a persistent state of dehydration because they frequently restrict fluids during daily training sessions to maintain or reduce their body weight and are not given enough opportunities to drink.
Determine the body hydration status of adolescent judo athletes before, immediately after, and 24 h after (24H) a training session and document sweat Na+ loss and symptoms of dehydration.
Body mass and urine color and specific gravity (USG) were measured before, after, and 24 h after a training session in a high-heat-stress environment (29.5 ± 1.0°C; 77.7 ± 6.1% RH) in 24 adolescent athletes. Sweat sodium loss was also determined. A comparison was made between mid-pubertal (MP) and late pubertal (LP) subjects.
The majority of the subjects started training with a significant level of dehydration. During the training session, MP subjects lost 1.3 ± 0.8% of their pretraining body mass whereas LP subjects lost 1.9 ± 0.5% (P < .05). Sweat sodium concentration was 44.5 ± 23.3 mmol/L. Fluid intake from a water fountain was minimal. Subjects reported symptoms of dehydration during the session, which in some cases persisted throughout the night and the next day. The 24H USG was 1.028 ± 0.004 and 1.027 ± 0.005 g/mL for MP and LP, respectively.
Adolescent judo athletes arrive to practice with a fluid deficit, do not drink enough during training, and experience symptoms of dehydration, which may compromise the quality of training and general well-being.

mentioned, there is a need for research in the field of martial arts as a method of exercise for health prevention/promotion. Moreover, it is not clear in the literature if grappling (judo) and striking martial arts (Muay Thai) exert the same influence on HRV in children and adolescents. It is noteworthy

Key Points ▸ There is a widespread underreporting of concussion in athletes. ▸ Red-flag symptoms were often mistaken for common concussive symptoms by judo coaches. ▸ Coaches’ concussion education, judo equipment, and legislature are potential areas of improvement. Sport-related concussion has an

All Olympic combat sports (currently, judo, taekwondo, boxing, and wrestling) separate athletes by body mass (BM) into “weight” divisions to minimize size/strength disparities. To ensure athletes meet weight requirements, official weigh-ins are held before competition. In addition to reducing body

Judo for athletes with vision impairment (VI judo) is a Paralympic sport that follows the same rules as Olympic judo but with one main exception, as the match is initiated with athletes positioning their grips on the opponents’ jacket ( judogi ; International Paralympic Committee, 2018 ). This

Judo is considered an intermittent combat sport, whose effort periods vary between 20 and 30 seconds and are interspersed by 10-second pause periods. 1 The scoring actions during the judo match are dependent mainly on the anaerobic metabolism 1 , 2 ; however, the oxidative system contributes to
