Abstract Resume

Background: The assessment of physical fitness is necessary for monitoring the performance, fatigue and recovery, however, few tests use specific sports gestures and, furthermore, are
reliable. The Frequency Speed of Kick Test (FSKT) is a specific test designed to evaluate the taekwondo athletes’ performance. Considering that specificity and reliability are essential
characteristics of confidence, the purpose of this study was describe the reliability of FSKT using single and multiples sets in taekwondo. Methods: Fourteen male black-belt taekwondo
athletes (mean ± SD, age: 20.6 ± 4.2 years; height: 180.4 ± 7.0 cm; body mass: 70.7 ± 11.8 kg; practice time: 7.8 ± 4.7 years) volunteered to participate in this study. The athletes were competing at
a regional or more prominent level (international: 21%; national: 36%; state: 36%; regional: 7%). The FSKT single set had duration of 10-s (FSKT10s). The technique used during the test was the turning
kick (bandal tchagui). The performance was determined by the total number of kicks generated during the test. Moreover, FSKT multiple (FSKTmult) consisted of 5-sets of 10-s effort with 10-s of rest
between each set, with total duration of 90-s. The performance was determined by the total number of kicks generated during each set, sum of kicks during five sets and kicks decrement. Data presented
normal distribution and were presented as mean and standard deviation. The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) technical error of measurement (TEM), limits of agreement (LOA) and minimal
detectable change at 95% confidence interval (MDC95%) were calculated. Results: The FSKT10s performance was 21±2 and 21±2 kicks in test and retest. During FSKT10s the TEM (%) and ICC
were 0.6 and 0.95, respectively. The LOA was 0.4±1.7 rep and MDC95% was 3.3 rep. The FSKTmult presented 21±2, 20±2, 19±2, 18±1, 18±1, 91±26 and 8.3±3.1 for set 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, total sum and kick
decrement percentage in test and 21±3, 20±2, 19±2, 19±2, 18±2, 98±10 and 7.6±3.0 for set 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, total sum and kick decrement (%) in retest. The FSKTmult present ICC between 0.73-0.90, TEM
between 0.6–3.1%, LOA between -0.1 and 0.5 and MDC95% values for FSKTmult were 4.32 – 6.28 for kicks, 17.72 for sum of kicks and 9.30% for decrement kick. Conclusions: This test
presented good reliability (test-retest). Considering the reliability an important characteristic, the results presented herein should be of interest to coaches, trainers, practitioners and taekwondo
athletes, because this is the only intermittent taekwondo test currently available in scientific literature.
