The purpose of this study was to show somatotype and physical characteristic differences between elite taekwondo (TKD) athletes and non-athletes. Differences between weight divisions for Gyorugi and Poomsae athletes were also examined. In this study, we first observed 51 elite TKD athletes and 30 non-athletes. The participants were measured with the modified somatotype method of Heath-Carter, resulting in three kinds of somatotypes (endomorph, mesomorph, and ectomorph) and a balanced type…

Differences in body components and the significance of rehabilitation for taekwondo athletes compared to nonathletes

Physical and physiological profile of elite karate athletes.
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that karate athletes' ranges of bilateral hip and knee flexion are greater compared with non-karate athletes, and reaction time is a crucial element in karate because high-level performance is based essentially on explosive techniques.
Somatotype Variables Related to Muscle Torque and Power in Judoists
TLDR
The results indicated that the values of mesomorphic and ectomorphic somatotype components influence muscle torque and power output, thus body build could be an important factor affecting results in judo.
Differences in body components and electrical characteristics between youth soccer players and non-athletes
TLDR

Somatotype, Body Composition and Proportionality in Polish Top Greco-Roman Wrestlers
TLDR
In heavier categories, characteristic type is endomorph-mesomorph, whereas lighter weight categories are dominated by balanced mesomorph; a considerable difference in endomorphy and indices of body composition can also be observed.
Growth and somatotype patterns of Manus children, territory of Papua and New Guinea: application of a modified somatotype method to the study of growth patterns.
TLDR
Comparison of height, weight and subscapula skinfold values show that the Manus children resemble the Kaiapit and Bundi children of the New Guinea highlands populations reported by Malcolm in the form of their growth curves but not in growth rates.
A comparison of somatotype methods.
TLDR
Parnell's method fails to modify the basic weaknesses in Sheldon's somatotype method, and analyses of the anthropometric data basic to Parnel's method will further objectify and simplify Heath's method, will improve agreement among independent raters, and will increase the usefulness of somatotyping as a research instrument.
