Montreal, October 8th 2018 – Judo Canada is happy to announce its new partnership with RockTape. RockTape is a global leader in sports medicine products and education. RockTape helps patients and athletes to “go stronger, longer®” with the world’s best kinesiology tape, powerful pain-relieving topicals, unique evidence-informed education seminars, mobility tools and joint support accessories.
Functional Movement Techniques (FMT) Certification courses are led by industry-leading experts in movement assessment and therapy. FMT courses present a revolutionary way of thinking about how we move and how we injure. They integrate innovative mobility and stability strategies, along with a movement-based, practical kinesiology taping framework to deliver RESULTS.
Tiffany Hunting, Head Therapist for Judo Canada’s national teams, said: “RockTape helps treat a variety of our athlete’s ailments. Whether it is to help improve proprioception, provide support, enhance circulation or active/relax muscles, RockTape will help our team get back to their full training and competing potential after an injury. With our partnership with RockTape, I am also looking forward to learning about and trying new products that I haven’t used before.”
Nicolas Gill, Judo Canada’s CEO and High Performance Director, added: “Judo Canada is always looking for new partners who care about the well-being of our athletes. It’s our responsibility to surround them with a good team and to give them the best possible tools. Monique Corriveau once said, ‘Excellence in any given field requires our complete devotion’, and it’s the mission we gave ourselves.”
With this new partnership, in addition to RockTape free products and the identification of specific needs with specific athletes, Judo Canada’s therapeutic team will also benefit from education for the entire team, workshops for trainers, speakers at events to talk about Blades, Pods and Floss products and their benefits for athletes, and onsite presence at events to provide free taping and more information on taping.
