CONDITION AND DIFFERENCES OF SOME SPECIFIC MOTOR SKILLS AMONG BOXERS FROM THE REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA, REPUBLIC OF SERBIA AND REPUBLIC OF CROATIA

Ruzdija Kalach, Nebojsa Markovski

The main goal of the research is to determine the condition and the differences of specific motor abilities among boxers from the R. Macedonia, R. Serbia and R. Croatia. The research was conducted on a selective sample of 347 male examinees, boxers at the age of 18 to 33 years. The sample is divided into three sub-samples and that is: 92 boxers from R. Croatia measured by S. Blazhevich (2006), 153 boxers from R. Serbia measured by M. Savich (1986) and 102 boxers from R. Macedonia measured by R. Kalach (2012). For assessment of the specific motor skills these variables were applied, i.e. motor tests: “skipping the rope – skip 10 seconds” (SPJ10S), “the speed of executing 100 direct strokes in bag” (SB100U), “the speed of executing 100 combined strokes in bag” (SB100K), “jumps with both feet 10 seconds and performing left-right direct” (SSPLDD), “jumps with both feet 10 seconds and performing left-right hook” (SSPZDK), “jumps with both feet and performing left-right uppercut” (SSPLDA), “defense with deviation of left-right direct and placing six counter strokes on the hands of the coach” (SOLDDK), “a series of 100 combined strokes on the hands of the coach ” (S100RT). Among all applied variables besides the basic descriptive statistical parameters it is determined the normality of distribution with the help of the Kolmogorov and Smirnov procedure. The differences in the situational motor tests are determined by a student t-test. On the basis of the obtained results it can be concluded that the boxers from R. Croatia measured by S. Blazhevich (2006) are dominant in specific movements in which dominate explosive movements of the lower extremities, while the boxers from R. Macedonia dominate in specific motor skills that are characterized by the mobility of the cranial part of the body and speed-force endurance of the upper extremities. Boxers from R. Macedonia and R. Croatia achieve better results in most situational motor tests unlike the boxers from R. Serbia measured by Savich in 1986.
