  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to provide useful information on physical fitness training to improve the performance of Taekwondo demonstration majors by identifying the characteristics of physical fitness factors according to the performance level of university Taekwondo demonstration members. Method: The subjects of this study are Taekwondo demonstration members enrolled in K University located in D city. The differences in body structure, physical fitness factors, isokinetic muscle function of the knee joint, and anaerobic exercise capacity were compared and analyzed for 3 male students in the national demonstration group and 3 male students in the general demonstration group. Results: As a result of measurement of body structure, physical fitness factors, isokinetic muscle function, and anaerobic exercise capacity of the national demonstration team and general students, there was no statistically significant difference between groups. However, through the results of this study, it was confirmed that the ratio of flexor and extensor muscles needs to be improved to an ideal ratio of 55% to 65% as suggested in previous studies to prevent damage to the lower extremities of general students. In addition, the standing long jump and sargent jump, side step, eyes closed and one leg standing, and knee joint isokinetic muscle power showed a higher tendency in the national demonstration group compared to the general students. There was no statistically significant difference between groups in the measurement results of anaerobic exercise capacity. Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, it is thought that it will be difficult to present the characteristics of the physical fitness factors according to the performance level of Taekwondo demonstration majors. However, considering the results of many previous studies and this study, it is thought that efforts to improve agility, power, and balance ability are needed to improve the performance of Taekwondo demonstration majors. It is judged that improvement of the flexion muscle/extension muscle ratio of the lower extremities is necessary to prevent additional injuries.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is, as a previous study to help prepare specific goals and plans for the university students of Taekwondo major, is to identify and analyze the major areas of interest and their extent of interest for the underclassmen university students in Taekwondo major. Method: To examine and understand the area of interest and the extent of interest of the university students of Taekwondo major, this study produced and conducted an open-ended survey questionnaire regarding religion, hobbies, Taekwondo major’s area of interest, and future hopes. As for the data collected based on the questionnaires, the SPSS 26.0 program was used. The frequency analysis was performed to analyze the general characteristics of the study participants and the extent of interest of their area of interest, and the data collected via the open-ended questionnaire were subjected to the inductive content analysis. Results: First, as a result of the inductive content analysis performed of the extent of interest for the hobby activities of the university students of Taekwondo major, the hobby activities were structured into 18 sub-areas, and the 18 sub-areas were further classified into the 5 general areas of physical activity(206), media activity(54), social group activity(37), literary activity(26), and others(6), respectively. In the general area, physical activity(62.61%) turned out to have the largest rate, followed by media activity(16.41%), social group activity(11.25%), and liter-ary activity(7.9%), in terms of the extent of interest hobbies, respectively. Second, the first year and second year university students of Taekwondo major who analyzed the Taekwondo major’s area of interest for the extent of interest of the university students of Taekwondo major turned out to have demonstration being the largest with 42 people(45.3%) among the 3 areas of Taekwondo of Poomsae, Sparring, and Demonstration, with 35 people(36.8%) for Poomsae, and 17 people(17.9%) for Sparring. Conclusion: If the areas of interests of the underclassmen university students identified based on the results of this study were utilized as the basic data, it will be possible for the university students to present specific goals for their future career paths and occupations after graduation through their upperclassmen years.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to compare and analyze pparun bal dollyuchagi(fast spin kick) motion of Taekwondo players, divided as outstanding ones and unskilled ones, to provide kinematic information on Taekwondo kicks and pparun bal dollyuchagi motion, and analyze differences in kicks between comparative groups. Method: The subjects of this study are Taekwondo players in their 20s who are attending the Taekwondo department at K University, five outstanding ones who have won prizes at domestic competitions and five unskilled ones who have not won competitions. Prior to the experiment, the subjects were asked for consent and explained how to proceed with the experiment. Kinematic data were collected using eight digital cameras. Statistical processing in this study was conducted using SPSS 22.0 software, and statistical analysis values were calculated as mean(M) and standard deviation(SD). An independent sample t-test was conducted to analyze the differences between groups, and the statistical significance probability was set to p<0.05. Results: There was no significant difference in the total execution time during the comparative analysis between the skilled and unskilled players of Jasebaqeo Pparunbal Dollyuchagi, and significant differences were found in the left and right variables of body center. Also, significant differences were found for each event in the hip, knee, and ankle joints of the lower extremities. Conclusion: According to the experiment, it is necessary to select an efficient hitting distance to improve the com- pleteness of the pparun bal dollyuchagi motion, and to hit the target, the width of the center of mass displace- ment on the left and right sides must be small and balanced without shaking. The knee joint and ankle joint should be quickly extended when striking a target, then vertically moved quickly to perform a perfect motion. This study is considered significant in that it provided fundamental data necessary for the efficient performance of kicks.

The data processing of this study was frequency analysis, Cronbach's α coefficient calculation, factor analysis, and correlation analysis by using the SPSS 25.0 Program, a statistical package program. The multiple regression was used. Results: As a result of the factor analysis performed on generativity, social adaptation, and social happiness, it was consisted of 2 factors for generativity, 4 factors for social adaptation, and 4 factors for social happiness, and all factors turned out to be .05 or higher, respectively. As a result of the reliability validation performed, the Cronbach's α coefficient turned out to be between .952 and .673, and as a result of the correlation analysis performed, it turned out that there was a positive(+) relationship between all of the factors. It turned out that generativity influences social adaptation and social happiness. Conclusion: To achieve the purpose of the study, a conclusion was reached that generativity influences social adaptation and social happiness through the results of the questionnaire. It is necessary to maintain and improve optimism through the mental and physical health by continuously participating in physical activities including the martial arts training for youth, and there is also a need for an environment where the youth may freely participate in sports activities without any restrictions and the method or policy supported by policy.
