The sport of taekwondo requires the ability to produce the maximum strength, speed, endurance, agility and flexibility in a short time and a high level of sportive performance.
The study included 68 taekwondo ITF athletes from 8 local taekwondo clubs in Bulgaria. Fundamental parameters of anaerobic capacity were assessed.
The purpose of the present study was to compare motor abilities in young male and female Bulgarian taekwondo athletes.
