Our unique label, should be our own name. Prominence of the person with a disability

"Labeling is something definite; once you say, making meaning. "(Namka). 
"Labeling is a process in which descriptors are created to identify people who differ from the norm. Standards is a large relative term. Each of us is different from another person in some way. " 
(Darrow and White)

Haga ejercicios diariamente. Incluso una breve sesión de ejercicios periódicos en algún momento del día puede lograr resultados extraordinarios para mejorar la calidad del sueño, reducir el estrés y las emociones negativas, relajar la tensión muscular y elevar su agilidad mental y el nivel de energía. Algunas investigaciones recientes muestran los beneficios para la salud de caminar aunque sea 20 minutos al día, tres veces a la semana. Consulte al médico sobre un plan de ejercicios que le convenga
Tómese el tiempo necesario para atender a sus propias necesidades. La recreación no es un lujo: es un tiempo necesario para "recrearse", para renovarse. Al menos una vez a la semana, y durante varias horas cada vez, necesita disponer de tiempo exclusivo para usted para leer un libro, almorzar con una amistad o irse de paseo

Judo Program for children with various physical disabilities

Marquito  with sensei David Tanimura

I want to tell you about a wonderful project. Judo program for people with disabilities! 

The purpose of the program is to facilitate Judo in a practical and functional learning environment. I have been working closely with Sensei  Brett Wolf and his team.  They provided support with so much love, solidarity, patience and above all much respect for human life. 

Actually my respect and admiration for this group of caring people who give their time and make a better world for our children! 

Training begins with socialization. This is a sensitizing and awareness activity. It improves the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities by providing the opportunity to develop friendship, and gives one on one assistance to prepare them to participate actively in society. This is healthy and disciplined sport that creates space for friendly relations between people without and without intellectual disabilities. These friendships raise self-esteem, self-confidence and strengthen the social skills of all involved. They are mutually enriching. They are a great motivating factor for volunteering students. 
People with intellectual disabilities and other reading difficulties understand and have the ability to learn but need adaptations in the presentation of information. 

Feel free to contact Sensei Brett Wolf, he is the person to talk about this wonderful program.
