Objective of the study was to see if there is any significant difference exists between the judokas, wrestlers and boxers on anticipation time by comparing their anticipation time performances. To test the hypothesis that the three groups have non-significant differences on anticipation time variables namely number of early and late responses and also average time deviation from early and late responses, 96 male only sportspersons having mean age 22.49 ± 2.37 were being randomly tested who had at least participated at state level in their respective sport. Each sports person was given three trials of 20 responses and the average value of all the three trials was recorded on Basin anticipation timer (B.A.T.) machine. One way MANOVA using SPSS 23 statistical package was applied to get and analyze the results. There was a statistically non-significant difference in 4 anticipation time variables based on the sport which they practice, F
(8, 180) = .651, p
> .05; Wilk's Λ = 0.945, partial η2 = .028. The null hypothesis that there would be no significant difference between the three groups was therefore accepted and alternate hypothesis was rejected.Pages: 01-05 | 1453 Views 118 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
