BIOMECHANIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TECHNIQUES OF TOP STRIKERS' WHIP-LEG
Keywords: striking, whip-leg, movement, characteristics, biomechanics, striking effect
AbstractIn this paper, the authors have obtained the technical photos of three top strikers under biomechanic research methods by means of 3-D photography, then they have analyzed these photos according to APAS photo analysis system for the purpose of providing theoretical basis for striking teaching, scientific training and competition. At the time of finishing whip-leg movements the knee joint of the motion leg should be bent so as to decrease the moment of inertia, increase the twist angular velocity. The strikers should emphasize the sudden stop of the near side joints and make the moment of momentum be passed to the far side joints in a proper way so as to improve the action speed and striking effect.
