Freediving instructors from Russia have developed a course to teach non-sighted divers.

Nikolay Kanivets and Konstantin Borisov, who are both members of the sport’s governing body AIDA, have established the the best way to communicate freediving concepts to those who are visually impaired. They have since provided teaching techniques and a course manual that AIDA will publish.
