Dynamic Balance for Life is a 10 week Introductory Course that uses a judo-based approach to develop safe landing techniques to minimise harm from a fall.
An research ethics-approved Pilot Study in late 2021 conducted by Researchers at Adelaide Univerity in collaboration with the AU Judo Club demonstrated that the program is safe and feasible for older adults (65+ years old). The results of the study were presented at a conference in Brisbane by Dr Agathe Jadczak and can be viewed here.
