An Analytical Study of Angular Kinematical Variables during Execution of Toe-touch Skill among Various Levels Kabaddi Players – A Pilot Study
Keywords:Kabaddi, Raiders, Toe-touch skill, Biomechanics, Angular kinematics
Aim of Study: The aim of this study was to find out the difference in selected angular kinematical variables during the execution of toe-touch skill among various level kabaddi players (raiders). Material and Methods: Twenty male raiders were selected for this study. The age of the subjects was ranged between 18 to 25 years. Selected angular kinematical variables: leading leg ankle joint, trailing leg ankle joint, leading leg knee joint, trailing leg knee joint were measured by Kinovea software. The normality of data was tested by Shapiro-Wilk test. One-way analysis of variance was applied to find out the difference for selected variables between various groups for normal data. Post-hoc test was applied for pairwise comparison. Kruskal Wallis test was applied for non-normal data. Results: Kruskal Wallis revealed that there was no significant difference in case of leading leg ankle joint (p = .231), leading leg knee joint (p = .163) and trailing leg knee joint (p = .785) variables among various levels kabaddi players during the execution of toe-touch skill. ANOVA revealed that there was significant difference in case of trailing leg ankle joint (p = .011) variable among various levels kabaddi players during the execution of toe-touch skill. Conclusion: The study concludes that junior national level raiders possess highest angle at trailing leg ankle joint during the execution of toe touch skill.
