Analysis of time-space parameters of the front kick using the example of an athlete training in Muay Thai
Languages of publication
Problem. The main aim of this paper was to study the kinetics of the front kick of a Muay Thai athlete (age: 32, body mass: 71 kg; height: 173 cm). Methods. The study was conducted on an athlete who had long training experience, (about 16 years) and a high level of training. In the study the BTSSMART DX 6000 system of motion complex analysis was used. The system consisted of six cameras that read the position of 22 markers placed on the athlete’s body in real time. Results. The work presents the velocity for the foot and knee during a kick without target (air) and when aiming at a target. Most differences between velocities show statistical significance (p <0.05). Conclusions. In addition, the analysis showed significant changes in the kinematic parameters of the kick when a kicking target is introduced. The analysis showed that in most cases the kick in the air is characterized by higher velocities for the foot in relation to the kick at a target.
