RIVEIRO-BOZADA, Alicia et al. Influence the level of competition in technical actions performed point female Shiai Kumite -karate. CPD [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp.51-68. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim is to identify the technical actions of the karatekas that achieve to mark in competition and explore if the technical behaviour can discriminate between different competitive levels. It has registered the technical behaviour of 35 karatekas, modality of kumite feminine, in a total of 40 fights (18 of national regional/level and 22 of international level). It has used an observational design situated in the chamber of quadrant of nomothetical character and of multidimensional follow-up. The register has made with the program Lince and a tool of observation "Ad hoc" formed by a mixed system of formats of field and a system of categories designated FCSCSHIAIKUMITE. It has used the proof of Chi-square (p< 0,05) and it has made an analysis of polar coordinates, choosing like focal behaviours those relative to the punctuation and like behaviours conditioned all those relative to the other criteria. The results show that only the criterion punctuation discriminates between both levels of performance, adding 152 points in international level in front of 78 in national level (p= 0,002). The Yuko is the form to obtain point more frequented in both levels (76,4% vs 86,8%), nevertheless, the Ippon is efficient and frequented to international level (21,7%), and only represents 4,4% in fights of national level. In conclusion, there are two appearances that could be of special attention, the improvement of the technical actions of point more usual and of the defensive actions to these technicians, as well as the efficiency to obtain more punctuation when using them.
