Abstract

INTRODUCTION: In many ball game sports such as soccer, players often change their direction of movement in the game. A sidestep or open-step cutting, in which the ongoing path proceeds away from the support leg side, is an effective way to retain to fast speed after changing direction (Ohtsuki et al., 1988). Changing direction during running requires appropriate adjustment of posture and movement. The purposes of this study were to investigate the effect of turn angle and running speed during sidestep cutting on the cutting movement, and to get a basic knowledge of the skillful motion.
