    Test to be conducted

    A friend of mine at a university here in Toronto (York), is thinking about conducting this test:
    STUDY OF
    “STRIKING POWER”

    OBJECTIVE: TO ANALYSE AND COMPARE THE SPEED AND POWER OF VARIOUS STRIKES BY BOXERS AND MARTIAL ARTIST.

    GOAL: TO SEE WHICH TYPE OF TRAINING PRODUCES, CONSISTENTLY, GREATER STRIKING POWER. COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF HEIGHT, WEIGHT AND REACH FACTORS.

    PROCEDURE (SIMPLIFIED): SUBJECTS WILL BE TESTED IN THE FOLLOWING MATTER:
    TO TEST FOR SPEED: SUBJECT WILL BE VIDEO TAPED STRIKING AND THE FRAMES PER SECOND WILL BE USED TO CALCULATE SPEED.
    TO TEST FOR FORCE: SUBJECT WILL HIT FORCE MEASURING DEVICE.

    TEST SUBJECT PROFILES:
    50 BOXERS: 25 OVER 200LBS AND 25 UNDER 200 LBS
    50 “HARD STYLE” MARTIAL ARTIST: 25 OVER 200 & 25 UNDER 200
    50 “SOFT STYLE” MARTIAL ARTIST: 25 OVER 200 & 25 UNDER 200

    NOTE: REASON FOR VARIETY IN THE MARTIAL ARTIST PROFILE:
    MARTIAL ARTS STRIKING IS DIVIDED INTO TWO MAIN CATEGORIES:
    “HARD”- SIMILAR TO BOXING, POWER IS GENERATED BY THRUSTING OR PUSHING OFF WITH REAR LEG, TORSION OF THE HIPS AND FOLLOW-THROUGH OF THE SHOULDER.
    “SOFT” - POWER IS GENERATED BUY SUDDEN “SHAKING” OF THE WAIST, WHOLE BODY “EXPLODES” INTO A POWERFUL STRIKING MOTION, STRIKING PERIPHERAL ( ARM OR LEG) IS RELAXED, SUDDENLY TENSED AND THEN RELAXED AGAIN UPON RECOIL FROM TARGET STRUCK ( SNAPPING MOTION).


    TEST PROCEDURE ( DETAILED):

    -HEIGHT, WEIGHT and ARM MEASUREMENT ( LENGTH & DIAMETER) OF EACH TEST SUBJECT WILL BE TAKEN AT TIME
    OF TESTING.
    -THE HANDS OF THE TEST SUBJECTS WILL BE BARE, NO WRAPPING OR PADDED GLOVES WILL BE PERMITTED.
    -TEST SUBJECTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO “WARM UP” FOR MAX. 5 MIN.
    -CLOSED FIST TECHNIQUES TO BE TESTED:


    ALL TEST SUBJECTS: JAB, STRAIGHT ( FRONT & REAR), HOOK (FRONT & REAR), UPPERCUT (FRONT & REAR).
    MARTIAL ARTIST: ALSO TEST THE FOLLOWING: BACKFIST (SNAPPING & WHIPPING), PALM HEEL (REAR), KNIFE HAND (FRONT, REAR & DOWN), ELBOW ( ALL DIRECTIONS), RIDGE HAND (REAR).


    QUANTITY OF TECHNIQUES:
    TEST SUBJECTS SHALL EXECUTE EACH APPLICABLE TECHNIQUE, 5 TIMES.
    THE SCORES SHALL BE ADDED UP AND DIVED BY 2 TO REACH AN AVERAGE FOR SPEED AND FORCE.

    EQUIPMENT TO BE USED DURING TESTING PROCEDURE:
    DIGITAL VIDEO CAMERA
    FORCE MEASURING DEVICE

    Any suggestions??

    Not that I ever bothered to make the distinction, I just like to do both. Any "stlyists" that do both "soft" and "hard" styles of striking?

    I'll let you know when the test is being cinducted, Iknow this is a form to fill out.
    As for guys doing both "hard" & "soft"...
    Beats the hell out of me, I guess they would have to be one or the other. Just to keep it simple.

    Studies like this have been done before, but never to COMPARE styles or sizes.
    The have usually been done to test safety gear, like head gear and gloves.
    This will be a unique test.
    Any suggestions?

    He should divide by 5, since there are 5 trials. In addition, standard deviation should be calculated at least.

    Actually , I fucked up
    :(
    That is an "old" version of the test procedure.
    They will test 10 tries, get highest and lowest and median.
    All 3 values will be posted.

    Good stuff.

    The only problem with this test is that if your friend has some sort of a personal bias, it is bound to show up in the data. There are two reasons for this. First of all, the samples are too small to be "statistically significant" and since he will know which ones are boxers, which ones are soft stylists, whatever. Because of this, whatever bias he has will unconsciously seep into the data.

    In any case, it would be cool to see the results.
    You say what about my rice?

    I was concerned about HIS baias, he is a boxer.
    But the test will be conducted by NON MA types.
    It will be hard enough to get 50 of anything, I personally think if he gets 20 of each type, he will be lucky.
    Everyone says they can hit, but ask them to show it on test that can actually measure it.... well, you get the picture.
    The sheet that the volunters fill out askes th ebackground and name of the gym with phone munber, and it will be verified.
    With the boxers it will be easy, with the MA, I am not so sure.
