BACKGROUND Japanese kickboxing is a combat sport designed to accommodate fighters from different combat sports styles. However, the physiological profile of this discipline is unknown. Therefore, this study describes the neuromuscular, metabolic and cognitive responses to an official Japanese kickboxing (K-1) fight in 8 kickboxers. METHODS Measurements before and after the competition involved a simple reaction time test (SRT), countermovement jump (CMJ), blood lactate (BLA) and rating of… 
Acute neuromuscular responses to short and long roundhouse kick striking paces in professional Muay Thai fighters.
Results showed that both kick striking modes provoke comparable neuromuscular fatigue but H3 condition showed the potential to induce post activation potentiation.
The interaction of acute physical fatigue with three traditional functional performance tests and the reactive balance test.
La altura del salto en contramovimiento como instrumento de control de la fatiga neuromuscular. Revisión sistemática (Counter-movement Jump height as a means to monitor neuromuscular fatigue. Systematic Review)
Las múltiples ventajas que aporta un buen control de la carga y la fatiga tanto en deportes de equipo como individuales son conocidas, aunque es importante determinar si un mismo método de control


Effects of Recovery Type after a Kickboxing Match on Blood Lactate and Performance in Anaerobic Tests
The lactate removal was improved with AR when compared with PR, but AR did not improve subsequent performance, while SJ and CMJ were not affected by the recovery type.
Anaerobic upper and lower body power measurements and perception of fatigue during a kick boxing match.
Findings showed that a single kick-boxing match is of sufficient intensity to stress the anaerobic metabolism and training protocols should include exercises that train theAnaerobic energetic pathways for upper and lower body.
Cardiac Autonomic and Neuromuscular Responses During a Karate Training Camp Before the 2015 Pan American Games: A Case Study With the Brazilian National Team.
The national karate-team athletes did not present signs of fatigue accumulation, as indicated by relatively steady HRV and unchanged CMJ during the week, as planned by the coaches for precompetition technical and tactical refinement.
Physiological responses and match analysis of Muay Thai fighting
This study was devised to measure certain physiological variables related to the energy requirement together with a match analysis during real Muay Thai matches. Twenty skilled male fighters were
Physiological responses and perceived exertion during international Taekwondo competition.
International-level Taekwondo competition elicited near-maximal cardiovascular responses, high blood lactate concentrations, and increases in competitors' RPE across combat, which should therefore include exercise bouts that sufficiently stimulate both aerobic and anaerobic metabolism.
Information-processing under incremental levels of physical loads: comparing racquet to combat sports.
Evidence is provided that the 4-CRT is a task that more closely corresponds to the original task athletes are familiar with and utilize in their practices and competitions, and additional tests that mimic the real world experiences of each sport must be developed to capture the nature of information processing and response-selection in specific sports.
Simple reaction time and decision making performance after different physical workloads: an examination with elite athletes
The purpose of the present study was to investigate effects of both local and general physical fatigue on visual simple and visual choice reaction time of elite level athletes. 15 male and 3 female
Effects of Official Taekwondo Competitions on All-Out Performances of Elite Athletes
Results indicate that the intermittent activity of the Taekwondo competition elicits a high neuromuscular activation of the lower limbs and decreases in grip strength could be because of the repeated concussions on the upper limbs used to protect from the opponent's kicks and punches directed toward the scoring area of the torso.
Why is countermovement jump height greater than squat jump height?
The crucial contribution of the countermovement seemed to be that it allowed the muscles to build up a high level of active state before the start of shortening, so that they were able to produce more work over the first part of their shortening distance.
Lactate and Rate of Perceived Exertion Responses of Athletes Training for and Competing in a Mixed Martial Arts Event
Lactate and rate of perceived exertion (RPE) was monitored in 6 male subjects training for and competing in a mixed martial arts event held in Butte, Montana, to determine 1) the metabolic demands of
