Comparative study between using traditional and the Favero stands to test the accuracy of lunge for foil fencers

Abstract

The problem of this study is to compare the accuracy of lunge between an auditory stimulus using the traditional stand and a visual stimulus using an electronic stand (FAVERO). The study aimed at being acquainted with the accuracy of the lunge using both the traditional and electronic stands and the differences between them for foil players. The sample of the study included 30 participants selected from the senior fencers of foil weapon of clubs of the Kurdistan Region. The study showed an average accuracy of the lung with traditional stand test of (9.03) and a standard deviation of (±0.66). Whereas in the electronic test they were (6.13) and (± 0.73) with a significant difference at a probability level of (0.002) in the accuracy of the lunge for the sake of traditional stand. The study recommended considering the use of visual stimuli at the levels of training, measurement and scientific research being the closest to the reality of competition in the game of fencing.
