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.
Pain Perception in Contact Sport Athletes: A Scoping Review
Contact sports athletes are regularly facing acute physical pain in part of their sport; however, the literature investigating pain perception in these athletes remains scarce. This scoping review
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
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.
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
Psychomotor Performance of Elite Volleyball Players during a Game
The findings indicate that the amount of training done by elite players is sufficient to prevent threshold fatigue levels that create significant decreases in psychomotor performance.
Effects of Successive Judo Matches on Fatigue and Muscle Damage Markers
It was concluded that 3 successive judo matches induced a decline of peak torque and muscle power in the upper and lower limbs, respectively, and also provoked an increase of muscle damage markers.
Simple and choice reaction times under varying levels of physical load in high skilled fencers.
Physical load results in enhancing information processing as measured by CRT without affecting SRT, providing evidence that aerobic exercise enhances attentional capability in fencers who are used to process information under similar physical conditions, but not in sedentary subjects unfamiliar to this environment.
Time-Motion and Biological Responses in Simulated Mixed Martial Arts Sparring Matches
Results of the study indicate that sparring training could be introduced into competitive microcycles to improve technical and tactical aspects of MMA matches, due to the high motor specificity and low muscle damage.
