Effect of functional strength training and karate skill training on coordination ability of college level karate players
AUTHOR(S): AP Seelan and Dr. A Subradeepan
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of functional strength training and karate skill training on coordination ability of college level karate players. To achieve the purpose of this study, the investigator selected sixty college level karate players as participants in the age group of 19 to 23 years. They were divided into four groups of fifteen subjects each. Group-I underwent functional strength training, group-II underwent karate skill training, group-III underwent combined functional strength and karate skill training and group-IV acted as control. The selected psycho-motor profile coordination ability was assessed by standard test and procedure. During the training period, the experimental groups underwent their respective training five days per week for twelve weeks. The data collected from the four groups prior to and post experimentation on selected dependent variables was statistically analyzed by applying paired ‘t’ test and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). It was concluded that functional strength training, karate skill training and combined training groups have significantly improved the coordination ability of college level karate players. The result of the study produced 31.89% of improvement due to functional strength training, 21.67% of improvement due to karate skill training and 39.82% of improvement due to combined training.
