This study seem to test the reliability of the instrument TEOSQ in the Muay-Thai and in Jiu-Jitsu, both modalities of fights, looking for the performance of the athletes in task and ego orientation. Testing in 15 amateur Jiu-Jitsu fighters (n: 15) age between 14 to 42 years old (mean age 24.66±7.16) and 13 Muay-Thai professional athletes (n: 13, mean age: 25.92±5.15). For the total results, we have ego´s Alpha of 0.69 and 0.85 for task orientation; the jiu-jitsu team we had 0.63 and 0.88 of Alpha´s results, respectively to ego and task orientation and Muay-Thai team the results was 0.70 and 0.82 respectively to ego and task orientation. We can conclude that the instrument had a good performance in both fight and that men are more prepared for fight engagement than women mainly in Muay-Thai, because the ego average is superior then the other women fighters.Pages: 12-15 | 1335 Views 21 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
