The purpose of the present study was to clarify the relationship between physical fitness and judo competition performance in 14 judoists of D University. The data of physical fitness measured by 17variables were put into 5 formulas to estimate five physical fitness elements. Ninety-one games competed between 14 subjects having experience to participate in the league of Intercollegiate judo were selected to determine judo competition performance. The relationship between physical fitness and competition performance was investigated using correlation analysis and also multiple regression analysis was applied to find the validity of these estimating formulas in such way that the competition performance as a criterion might be estimated with these five physical fitness elements as independent variables.
Then, the following results were obtained;
1. The judo competition performance showed significant and high correlation with the first element (physique and static muscular strength), and its degree of contribution was 76.0% to total variance of competition performance.
2. The judo competition performance did not show any significant correlation with muscular power of lower limbs, stature and body weight.
3. Negative correlation was shown between muscular power of lower limbs as second element, and body weight and chest girth.
4. It could be inferred that the most important element for the light-weight judoists to win over the heavy-weight was to utilize the power of lower limbs; i. e, the 2nd element and the total body power with agility; i. e, the 3rd element.
