In this study, we created a five-point evaluation measurement technique of basic physical fitness on the basis of data collected from 729 university judo athletes. The data included an eight-factor,10-item measurement of basic physical fitness variables considered important in competitive judo. Using these data, we obtained norm values, and created the evaluation meaurement scales separately for each weight division and variable. Based on the findings from this study, we were able to conclude the following: 1. The data were normally distributed in the five point evaluation scale. We thus concluded that this scale could be used in a meaningful way to measure basic physical fitness among club members. 2. According to our comparison of the data among the various weight categories, it is possible to compare the interrelationships among the various different variables because of their standardization, as well as the special characteristics of each of the weight categories. 3. It is necessary to further examine the evaluation and measurement methodology of the Bass Dynamic Balance test, and the selection of other measurement items in the future.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the difference of actual situations and consciousness between Japanese and Frence Judo participants in order to clarify the cause of decining Japanese Judo participants A questionnaire containing ten items about popularezing Judo was conducted on two hundred and fourteen Japanese and one haundred and fifty-seven Frence Judo participants. Analyzing the data statistically, the following results were obtained: 1. French Judo participants began Judo with more positive motivation, at an earlier age and had a better image about Judo than Japanese. 2. French Judo participants were taught with various better ideas and enjoyed Judo practice more than Japanese. 3. French Judo participants practiced Judo fiwer time and played more kinds of sports than japanese. 4. French Judo participants knew their Judo Federation and its activity better than Japanese. 5. French Judo participants wanted to be involved with Judo for longer and make theie own children play Judo more than Japanese. In addition, the relationship among obtained factors that contribute to popularize Judo, were investigated with an arrow diagram.
In order to clarity the sports vision capability of kendo player, we used sports vision test on soccer, baseball and volleyball players, whose sports vision capabilities are reported to be fine, to measure eight parameters which includes SVA (Static Visual Acuity), KVA (Kinetic Visual Acuity), DVA (Dynamic Visual Acuity), CS (Contrast Sensitivity), OMS (Ocular Motor Skill), DP (Depth Perception), VRT (Visual Reaction Time) and E/H (Eye/Hand Coordination). For each parameter, we ranked every player of kendo, soccer, baseball and volleyball into 4 groups. By means of statistical analysis and comparison of each experimental result, we conclude that there are no defferences in SVA, KVA, CS, OMS, DP, VRT, E/H of each sport player while DVA of soccer and baseball players are higher than of kendo player. It is suggested that sports vision capability of a kendo player is almost as good as those of soccer, baseball and volleyball players whose sports vision capacty is said to be fine except DVA.
