LOPEZ-LOPEZ, José Antonio et al. Technical-tactical analysis in Taekwondo with polar coordinates through software HOISAN. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.1, pp.131-142. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim of the current research was to provide a novel perspective on the understanding of the actions performed in Taekwondo, to do this, the actions performed by the men finalists and semifinalists in the Olympic Games in London 2012 were analyzed. Based on a taxonomic and methodologically validated system, analysis of polar coordinates was performed using the genuine analytical technique. This technique allows us to know the relationship between the focal category and various conditional categories, in addition to build different behavioral maps. To perform the mentioned analysis, were chosen as focal categories those actions relating to the effectiveness of one, two and three points while as conditional categories were chosen technical and tactical variables. This innovative technique of analysis was implemented by using the observation software HOISAN. The software allows to remove the difficulties previously raised when using this technique.

Keywords : Interaction; polar coordinates; software HOISAN; observation; combatsport.
