Abstract


Motor abilities play important role in achieving proficiency in games and sports. Motor Fitness is an athlete’s ability to perform effectively during sports. Motor Fitness involves a mixture of speed, agility, power, coordination, strength and so on and is essential for competing at high levels. For this study, 20 female players each from Boxing (after 6 months of training) and Physical Education were selected from Sher-i-Kashmir Indoor Sports Complex Srinagar and Delhi Public School Budgam, J&K who had played at least at district level or state level. The age group of subjects was ranging between 17-19 years. Test by Barrow motor ability test was used to measure motor fitness components. To find out the significant differences between means of the Boxing and Physical Education Students, unpaired ‘t’ test was applied. From the study, differences were observed on leg- strength, speed and arm & shoulder strength variables between Boxing and Physical Education Students but these were insignificant. It was found that Boxing players are better in leg strength and arm & shoulder strength whereas Physical Education Students are superior to boxing player in speed.
