Frequency Speed of Kick Test Performance Comparison Between Female Taekwondo Athletes of Different Competitive Levels

Santos, JFS and Franchini, E. Frequency speed of kick test performance comparison between female taekwondo athletes of different competitive levels. J Strength Cond Res 32(10): 2934–2938, 2018—Construct validity is a desirable characteristic in any performance test to differentiate athletes. However, no taekwondo-specific test was investigated with this purpose. The purpose of this study was to compare female taekwondo athletes grouped in different competitive levels. Forty-two female taekwondo athletes divided into International/National (median [interquartile range]; n = 21, age: 20 [18–25] years; body mass: 60 [53–72] kg; height: 164 [161–170] cm; and practice time: 8 [5–13] years) and State/Regional group (median [interquartile range]; n = 21; age: 18 [17–25] years; body mass: 57 [52–63] kg; height: 165 [160–172] cm; and practice time: 5 [2–8] years) volunteered to participate in this study. The female taekwondo athletes performed frequency speed of kick test (FSKT) with 10 seconds (FSKT10s) and intermittent 90 seconds (FSKTmult) during the competitive period. Differences between international/national and state/regional group were observed, with superiority to international/national group, for FSKT10s (U = 114.5, p = 0.007, ESr (effect size) = −0.42 [small]), FSKT1 (U = 127.0, p = 0.016, ESr = −0.37 [small]), FSKT2 (U = 108.5, p = 0.004, ESr = −0.45 [small]), FSKT3 (U = 127.0, p = 0.015, ESr = ...

Authors: Zhylkaidarova A, Kaidarova D, Batyrbekov K, Shatkovskaya O, Begimbetova D Abstract We carried out an analysis of the total incidence of colon cancer throughout Kazakhstan. Retrospectively, according to the regional reports on endoscopic screening, the study showed an increase in the age-related incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) cases from 2004-2008 to 2009-2014. The peak of morbidity in both periods was noted in the age category of>70 years. The indicators of the territorial distribution of CRC incidence make it possible to divide the regions into areas with low or high rates of CRC. Specific indicat...
