Point-fight kickboxing match analysisAuthor(s):
Ľuboslav Šiška and Jaroslav BroďániAbstract:
The present paper discusses the differences between the groups of winners and losers in point-fight kickboxing matches in terms of the points earned, techniques used and situations encountered during the match. We analyzed 28 matches from the 2015 World Cup. We compared the points earned and the individual techniques, which consisted of 8 parameters divided into 4 groups - hand, leg; lead, rear; offense, defense; body, head. The differences between the criteria were analyzed by standard tests of statistical and material significance. In terms of statistics, the winners have earned significantly more points than the losers in all rounds. The use of the individual techniques differs, however, there are no statistically significant differences in the acquisition of points through offensive and defensive techniques. The winners achieve statistically significantly more points in situations where no adequate counter-technique exists to the scoring technique. The most commonly occurring technique in the match is the confrontation of hand rear offense head against the lead leg defense body, where the offensive technique is more successful. However, the defensive punches are more successful in the lead leg offense body attack against the hand defensive techniques. In the most common situations, the winners earned significantly more points for the defensive techniques than the losers, they had significantly better efficiency ratios in the individual techniques, however, no differences have been observed in the total number of attempts in the individual techniques. The training process should focus on practicing the situations that occur most frequently in the match, and emphasis should be put on the speed and effectiveness of the hand rear offense head technique. The main difference between the winners and losers is the leg lead offense body technique, or an adequate response by a defensive punch either by the lead or rear hand. In terms of further research, we propose to perform a factor analysis of the most frequent situations.Pages: 16-19 | 642 Views 27 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
