Analytical study of movement of the lunge by the foil Weapon of the first player in germany


The study aims at expounding some biomechanical variables for the executing the Lunge stabbing during competition. The study sample consisted of one female player, the champion of Germany. The researchers adopted descriptive method, which is appropriate for the study. The data were collected using video capture and a computer. The researchers studied the complete recorded stream of the final competition in order to determine the most accurate stab performed by the player during the complete game. The lunge was studied using systems and programs designed for motor analysis and the results were analyzed and discussed according to the biomechanic ( kinematics ) perspective .The researchers concluded that when the lunge is fast and abrupt it caches the opponents off guard and in the same time increases the player’s confidence for making an accurate touch. This movement has and adverse effect on the knee angle, height of hip from ground the inclination of the trunk and angular velocity of knee joint. While the effect was proportioned with the horizontal displacement of ankle, angular velocity of hip joint and knee joint. The researchers emphasized on the abruptness and speed of the lunge while lowering the hip joint and increasing the space between legs and also on the speed of inclination of trunk at the moment of the lunge in order to acquire horizontal velocity after the center of gravity leaves its base .
