It was aimed to investigate the physical performances of visually and hearing impaired doing judo training in this study. 32 male athletes, who were doing judo training, volunteer and, visually and hearing impaired, participated in this study. The investigation was applied to visually impaired (N = 12, mean ± SD; age: 25.75 ± 3.55 years, height: 169.50 ± 9.41 cm, weight: 74.17 ± 20.17 kg, sport age: 6.42 ± 1.62) and hearing impaired (N = 20, mean ± SD; age: 19.25 ± 5.70 years, height: 172.55 ± 7.58 cm, weight: 70.55 ± 11.12 kg, sport age: 5.85 ± 1.60) male judoka. Flamingo balance test score averages for study groups were detected as 8.00 ± 3.27 min/pc in visually impaired male judoka and 13.50 ± 3.08 min/pc in hearing impaired male judoka. There was a significant association between two groups in favor of visually impaired judoka (p<0.05). In conclusion, it is thought that there is no negative effect of vision and hearing impairment factors on physical performance levels due to the close proximity of training levels of the elite judoka and also there is more development in balance variables in visually impaired when compared to hearing impaired due to the properties of impairment degree.
