Pádecký, Jan ; Tufano, James Joseph (advisor) ; Pavelka, Radim (referee)
Title: Kinematic and dynamic characteristics of straight punches in elite male boxers Objectives: The purpose of this study was to quantify lower limb forces in the x, y, and z directions and their association with jab and cross relative peak force, and jab and cross peak velocity. Methods: A sample of 12 elite male subjects participated in the present study, which took place over two days. Subjects were familiarized with the procedures during the first day. During the second day, the subjects performed a standardized warm-up protocol, followed by one straight punch with the rear and then the lead hand to a force plate that was suspended in the air at the chin level by a cable system. The subjects were standing on two separate tri-axial force plates. Punch velocity was assessed using a Qualisys Motion Tracking Manager, where the marker used was placed in the middle of 12 OZ gloves. Results: Subject body weight resulted in a high positive significant correlation with jab and cross peak force, and a non-significant low and moderate positive correlation with jab and cross peak velocity, respectively. Partial correlation controlling for bodyweight resulted in a very high positive significant correlation between jab peak velocity and jab peak force and a high positive, but the non-significant...

Babor, Marek ; Pavelka, Radim (advisor) ; Stich, Jaroslav (referee)
Title: Athletic preparation for karate - kumite training Objectives: The main aim of my bachelor thesis is to prepare, describe and evaluate specific exercises which arise from combining fitness and coordination factors of kumite with essential athletic movement elements for the use in kumite training. The subgoal is to compose a list of terms, facts and context necessary for reaching the main aim. Methods: Historical method was used to explain the evolution of karate and athletics sport disciplines. Individual movement abilities, sports equipment and exercises are presented descriptively . Compilation of "specific" excercises is a result of analytical-synthetic method. By connecting athletic exercises with essential kumite exercises a synthetic of both was born as an effective tool for increasing sports performance. Results: Basic athletic movement skills were used for training of movement abilities using described factors and their importance for athlete's performance, of which most applied to original exercises was run, which improves speed development and strength of lower limbs. Other athletic's elements in special exercises are jumps, that strengthen the explosive power of lower limbs. Such exercises are significant for development of coordination factors like sequence of movements, reactions...
Pre-competition reduction of body weight in MMA
Hrdlička, Jaroslav ; Coufalová, Klára (advisor) ; Pavelka, Radim (referee)
Title: Pre-competition reduction of body weight in MMA Objectives: The main aim of this work was to identify what weight reduction methods are used by professional MMA fighters and how many kilograms they reduce before fights. We also wanted to determine the time they start to work with their body weight and whether they feel any psychological changes or fatigue due to weight reduction. We were also interested in what supplements fighters use during weight cut. Methods: A survey method was used for data collection. The research sample consisted of 20 professional MMA fighters between the ages of 18 and 40. Results: We have found out that MMA fighters usually reduce their weight through reduced caloric intake and subsequent dehydration the most. The majority of respondents reported a reduction of 6 to 10 kilograms in the course of 2 to 4 weeks before the fight. Respondents feel weakened during weight loss and experience psychological impacts such as irritation, mood swings, aggression and sedation. Before the fight, 60% of fighters do not experience any signs of weakness, as the time period from weighting to the fight itself is sufficient to allow them to regenerate. The most commonly used supplements during weight loss are BCAAs, fat burners, proteins, multivitamins and multiminerals. Keywords:...

Svejkovská, Kristýna ; Pavelka, Radim (advisor) ; Zdobinský, Adam (referee)
Titel: Choice reaction time comparision of Muay Thai athletes Goals: The aim of this bachelor thesis is to find out whether oral tobacco has an influence on the reaction ability of a thaiboxing athlete (fighter) who uses it regularly and for a long time. Research compares selective responses to acoustic and visual stimuli among individuals who take oral tobacco while they are taking it and when they are without nicotine. Method: Its method of quantity reseach, where to get the results, we used method of testing by Vienna test, in which we have choosen determination test. The non- parametric paired Wilcoxon's rank test was used for data processing. Results: Based on the Vienna test system and further processed results by statistical method we have found out, that the results of thaiboxing athletes are not statistically significant and therefore we cannot say whether oral tobacco acts as a sedative or stimulant on thaiboxing athlete (fighter). Key words: Vienna test system, oral tobacco, Muay thai, determination test, reaction time, choice reaction

Novotná, Jaroslava ; Pavelka, Radim (advisor) ; Krištofič, Jaroslav (referee)
Title: The use of gymnastic ball in combat sport. Objective: The aim of this work is to create a stack of exercises for martial arts wrestlers usable for training and improvement of movement on the ground. The exercises used use a gymnastic ball, which replaces the absence of a sparring partner. The partial aim of the thesis is to find out the difficulty of the proposed exercises based on the respondents' subjective perception. Methods: Based on a long-term observation of martial arts training in conjunction with professional resources dealing with the issue, gymnastic ball exercises were profiled. There were 18 respondents who distinguished the difficulty of the 8 selected exercises. A 10-point Borg Scale was used to evaluate the difficulty, which records the individual perception of the effort required to perform the exercise. Results: The result of the work is a set of exercises on the gymnastic ball suitable for training fight positions and situations for combat on the ground. Furthermore, individual evaluation of the difficulty of selected exercises wrestlers combat sports. The exercises were evaluated by the respondents from simple ones, such as the "Shifting feet while lying on belly" exercise to very demanding "Kneeling on one leg" exercises.
