Abstract

The purpose of this study is to compare selected kinematics parameters between the "Sepak Kuda" and the "Sepak Sila" serves technique in the game of Sepak Takraw. Four international players were videotaped while performing both serves during the 21st SEA Games. Two of the players used the "Sepak Kuda" serve technique while the other two players used the "Sepak Sila". Six synchronized video cameras with a speed of 50 Hz were used. Data was collected using the Peak Motus 2000 System software. Results indicate that the "Sepak Kuda" serve gives a higher post-contact ball velocity compared to that achieved the "Sepak Sila".
