Author(s): Dr. Maman Paul
Abstract:
The endeavor of this study was to investigate the effects on Balance of Fencing Players. 24 University level male Fencers of Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar between the age group of 18-28 years (Mean ± SD: age 20.791±2.873 yrs, body height 168.25±2.608 cm, body mass 67.183±3.125 kg) volunteered to participate in the study. Modified Star Excursion Balance Test was used to measure the Balance. Statistical analyses were performed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences for Windows version 16.0 software (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL). Data is expressed as the mean ± SD. Paired sample t-test was utilized to compare the means of the Pre-Test and the Post-Test. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Significant differences were found in Balance-Right in the experimental group subjected to 6-week training. However, no significant changes over that 6-week period were noted in the control group. Furthermore significant differences were found in Balance-Left in the experimental group subjected to 6-week training. However, no significant changes over that 6-week period were noted in the control group.
