Author(s): Sahil Preet Bedi and Dr. Mandeep Singh
The primary objective of this study was to examine the anthropometric characteristics among the judokas of different weight categories. Total 48 judokas from different districts of Punjab were analyzed on the basis of different weight categories. The judokas falling under the age group of 16-22 years were studied. Height and length measurements of the players were measured with the anthropometric rod. Portable weighing machine was used to measure the weight of the players. Circumferences of the body parts of the players were measured with the steel tape. Diameters of the body parts of the players were assessed with the digital sliding caliper. The one-way ANOVA revealed that there were significantly differences in height (p<0.05), arm length (p < 0.05), biacromial (p<0.05) and bicondylar femur (p< 0.05) diameters, chest (p<0.05), upper arm (p < 0.05) and thigh (p<0.05) circumferences among the different weight categories of judokas. The post-hoc analysis showed a linear increase in anthropometric characteristics from light weight judokas to middle weight and heavy weight judokas.
