Abstract

The purpose of this study is to compare front-leg and back-leg movement abilities in Taekwondo athletes with a weight level of less than 68 kg. Six male subjects (age: 19.8±1, height: 175.6±3.9, weight: 62.5±4.8) conducted back-leg attacking movements and front-leg attacking movements with their dominant leg. The back-leg attacking movements include back leg round-house kick and strike back round house kick. The front-leg attacking movements include front leg round-house kick and slide round-house kick. From statistics obtained, the kicking of relative force, compound acceleration, and tangential acceleration are better for back-leg attacking movements. However, front-leg attacking movements are better in tangential velocity. The range of waist a rotation and the flexibility of the hip joint are important to roundhouse kick techniques to the kinetic chain.
