The importance of balance with the prescriptive teaching in kickboxing
Keywords:Blocked practice, Varied practice, Prescriptive teaching, Reaction, Kick
Problem statement. The problem in kickboxers is that during the execution of a shot (especially in lateral kicks) they have difficulty in keeping the balance in the third phase (reload phase) of the shot as they are focused on hitting the opponent in a position from their guard and their balance. Aim. The goal of the study is to improve balance in a group of kickboxers using two different types of exercises and observe which of the two is more effective. Methods. The sample is made up of 2 groups of 10 people in each group, with an average age of 16 with no experience in kickboxing. The first group was trained following the cognitive approach through varied exercises. The second group, on the other hand, was trained following the cognitive approach through partial exercises. The stork test was performed to underestimate balance and the independent samples t-test was used to underestimate the post-workout difference. Results. The result is statistically significant (p < .05). The results of the first group are higher than the seconds. The improvement of the balance, the ability to make decisions in a short time, the reaction, through visual stimulation given by the led light discs through the varied exercise, was better than in the experimental group 2. Conclusions. Both groups improved the balance but those who did a training based on varied exercise had a greater improvement because in kickboxing it is important to reproduce the technical gesture in various situations that are unexpected that cannot be anticipated due to the variability contextual.
