The Adaptive Martial Arts Association partnered with the Human Development Institute at the University of Kentucky to develop this three-module Disability 101 training to provide a baseline for martial arts instructors to support people with disabilities. The training was developed with the lived experience of the adaptive martial arts community, a comprehensive literature review on the benefits of martial arts on people with disabilities, and utilizing existing disability and health training for communities. The three modules include disability 101, universal design, and planning for successfully implementing an adaptive martial arts program. The training was developed as an asynchronous format available for on-demand viewing for martial arts programs around the country.
