  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to provide the basic data for technical performance by analyzing and presenting the differences in major kinematic factors in the jumping phase, flight phase, and finally striking phase for national team and non-national team male demonstration members. Method: As for the subjects of this study, 6 members of the national team and 6 members of the non-national team who had more than 3 years of demonstration experience were selected and tested. Before entering the experiment, a consent was secured from each subject, the experimental procedure was explained, and kinematic data were collected by using 14 high-speed digital cameras. For the statistical processing of this study, the mean and standard deviation (M±SD) were calculated by using Excel 2018, and the statistical program (SPSS 22.0, SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA) was used to verify the difference in kinematic variables of dwigongjungdorachagi motion. The Shapiro-Wilk verification was conducted to confirm the normality of the collected data, and according to the results, an independent sample test (independent t-test), test (Mann-Whitney U-test), and the correlation analysis were performed. Results: There was a statistically significant difference in P3 (p<.05) of the required time phase. There was a statistically significant difference in E4 (p<.05) of the (Z) movement displacements. There was a statistically significant difference in the right E4 (p<.05) of the right ankle joint angle. The correlation coefficient between the body center’s displacement and flight time showed a high correlation and showed a statistically significant difference (r=.953, P=.001). The correlation coefficient between the angular velocity and the body center’s displacement showed a high correlation and showed a statistically significant difference (r=.809, p=.001). The correlation coefficient between the angular velocity and flight time showed a high correlation and a statistically significant difference (r=.809, p=.001). Conclusion: As a result of the experiment, the swing speed of the arm and the angle of the knee joint before jumping during dwigongjungdorachagi provided a great force to project the human body into the air and also had the effect of increasing vertical ascent. Hence, it is apparent that the coordination of movements is a very important factor.

  • Purpose: This study aims to analyze the essential Poomsae difficulty of Taekwondo 9th level Dan promotion test with the awareness of the problem. This will help standardize the Taekwondo curriculum in order to meet the Taekwondo education goals pursued by the Kukkiwon, the headquarters of the World Taekwondo. Method: The literature research and in-depth interviews with people to be tested were performed to analyze the difficulty of essential Poomsae of Taekwondo 9th Dan promotion test. Results: As a result of questioning and analyzing the level of difficulty of the 9th level Dan promotion winner, it was concluded that the level of difficulty of Illyo Poomsae of the 9th level Dan promotion test is not appropriate.Courses to be completed for Color and Black Belts must comply with the completion time of the essential course and the selection course. Basic courses for Black Belt (Poomsae, breaking, sparring, and KTA personality) must be completed as mandatory courses, and in-depth courses (KTA self-defence techniques, KTA practical hand skills, and KTA core exercises) must be assigned. Conclusion: It is thought that Taekwondo 9th level Dan, the highest stage of the competition held at the Kukkiwon of the World Taekwondo Headquarters, should be educated to learn, guide, and evaluate Taekwondo according to the standard curriculum. However, the standardized Taekwondo curriculum should be distributed in consideration of the current Taekwondo training population, where the standardized Taekwondo curriculum has not been established. Taekwondo leaders will contribute to the educational use of Taekwondo by analyzing the essential Poomsae and curriculum of Taekwondo 9th level Dan promotion test and presenting the evaluation rules based on the Taekwondo standard curriculum.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine and understand the influence of the Taekwondo leaders' view of education on the emotional reaction and educational impact of the practitioners, and provide the basic data for developing an educational program for the practical education of Taekwondo and the efficient management of Taekwondo. Method: In this study, 230 Taekwondo studio practitioners were surveyed in 2021 and the convenience sampling was used for the sampling method, while the survey was conducted by using the Self-Administration Method. Among the collected questionnaires, 218 questionnaires were used as the valid samples, excluding the data with insincere responses or omission of some of the details of the survey. The measurement tool is a questionnaire, and the data processing is the SPSS 23.0 Program, a statistical package program, and the frequency analysis, reliability verification, factor analysis, correlation analysis, and the multiple regression were used. Results: In this study, as a result of the factor analysis and reliability verification performed, view of education was classified into liberal factors (α=.947) and conservative factors (.856), and emotional reaction was classified into positive factors (α=.943) and negative factors ( α=.892), while educational impact was classified into physical factors (α=.953) and emotional factors (α=.968). Furthermore, the effect of view of education on the emotional reaction and educational impact is such that view of education (liberal factor and conservative factor) influences the emotional reaction (positive factor and negative factor), and the view of education (liberal factor and conservative factor) influences the educational impact (physical factor and emotional factor), while the emotional reaction (positive factors, negative factors) influences the educational impact (physical factor and emotional factor). Conclusion: The conclusion obtained from undergoing the research process is that the Taekwondo leader's view of education influences the emotional reaction and educational impact of practitioners, and the Taekwondo leaders would need to have the correct view of education and the view of education reflective of the current trend and the needs and desires of practitioners, and based on which, they ought to strive not only to increase the positive emotions and decrease the negative emotions, but also improve the physical and emotional health of the practitioners.

  • Purpose: Martial arts can be related to the scientificization of the sporting process in the case of the body and the scientificization of the mind in the case of the mind, considering the two major flows of training the body and mind. Method: Scientificization related to physical training can promote future-oriented sports science with activation of convergence based on existing sports science, and cultivation of the mind can suggest scientificization to pursue new areas of philosophical thinking and the spiritual world. Therefore, based on the holistic training for the training of body and mind, it is made up of an academic approach for comprehensive scientificization. In the course of attempts for academic development and social contribution, various fields of science are promoting field-oriented basic guidelines, systematic review, high-level technology and qualitative evaluation, along with efforts to find evidence-based principles. Results: Martial arts activities are carried out in the form of sports activities, promoting optimization and maximization of physical fitness and technical factors, and are based on related physiology, nutrition, epidemiology, psychology, sociology, motor control and learning. In addition, the academic approach of sports science, including the physical conditioning and training theory of athletes, and industrial and environmental engineering related to efficient facilities, equipment, implement, and environment, will be the main content. Conclusion: The scientific approach for the future-oriented activation of martial arts requires the establishment of an intensive scientific support system for concrete scientificization in terms of the practical value and utilization of martial arts activities based on the establishment of academic identity. In addition, for the science of martial arts, it is necessary to promote advanced convergence science, globalization centered on trends and popularity in Korea, systematic nurturing of research personnel related to martial arts sports, establishment of a cluster of martial arts sports-related infrastructure, and popularization and industrialization of martial arts sports.

  • Purpose: In this study, we analyze the influence of leadership of a leader on sports attitude and perceived competitiveness in taekwondo athletes, and provide a practical basis for changing the physical and emotional attitudes of athletes and improving their competitiveness. Attempts to provide materials. Method: In 2021, the Korean Taekwondo Association was registered as a player registration, and while participating in the 51st Korean Taekwondo Association Long-term Group Opposition Taekwondo Tournament, players enrolled in high school were selected as recruitment teams and an online questionnaire was distributed. Finally, a total of 232 copies of materials were used. As for the data processing method, frequency analysis, exploratory factor analysis, reliability analysis, correlation analysis, and multiple regression analysis were performed using Excel 2016 and SPSS 21.0, and the following conclusions were drawn based on the results. Results: First, among the leadership types of taekwondo competition leaders, servant leadership had a positive impact on sports attitude (physical) factors. Second, of the types of leadership of taekwondo athletes, transformative leadership has had a positive impact on sporting attitude (emotional) factors. Third, the leadership of taekwondo athletic leaders (transformative, servant) had a positive impact on the perceived competitiveness factors. Fourth, the sports attitude (physical and emotional) factors of taekwondo athletes had a positive effect on the perceived competitiveness factors. Conclusion: Based on the restrictions of this research, I would like to present the direction to the next research as follows. First, since this study was conducted on athletes in the details of taekwondo, it is somewhat difficult to generalize to all taekwondo people. Therefore, in subsequent studies, it will be judged to be more diverse if the results are derived not only from the competition but also from the birds, demonstrations, and the leadership of the defeat leader. Secondly, while this study is registered as an athlete of the Korea Taekwondo Association, it is somewhat difficult to represent all athletes because the population is composed of high school athletes. Therefore, in the subsequent research, it is judged that various results will be obtained if the athletes in the field of physical education who are not registered as athletes and the athletes who retired and belong to the university or elementary school are included in the research.
