Science Library

Welcome to our new Science Library. We wanted to create a database of scientific literature for those interested in our sport, a library for judo-related, scientific studies. This can include nutrition science, movement and training sciences, biomechanics, sports physiology and pedagogy.

Experts in the EJU Education Department constantly search for new publications and findings that are then included in the database. For your search you can apply the presented keywords or you can search the database on your own.

Abstract: The consequences of falls have made them a public health problem worldwide. The WHO proposes to focus research and public health initiatives on the study of the risk factors associated with falls and on the creation of effective preventive strategies. The University of Seville (US), the European Judo Union (EJU) and the Andalusian Federation of Judo and Associated Sports (FANJYDA), following their belief of Judo for society, assume this challenge. Two proactive programs that have an impact on the education of a subject in the event of a fall are presented: Adapted Utilitarian Judo (for the older adult population) and Safe Fall - Safe Schools© (focused on children in school age).
