Shooting abilities were measured with the help of heading, shot power, finishing, long shot, curve shot, free kick assistance, penalties and volley skills. Secondary data has been used for this study. The Student ’t’ test statistics was applied to examine the existence of significant differences between the performance factors of Indian and foreign soccer players.

What Can the Great Traditions of Mankind Teach to Sports Scientists?

European Journal of Physical Education and Sport. 2022. 10(1): 36-49.
DOI: 10.13187/ejpe.2022.1.36CrossRef

Abstract:
The ontology of Sports Science is well-defined with its various themes and subjects being studied and presented in various works such as journal articles and textbooks, as well as by being in the curriculum of the various university departments. However, there is much to discover when turning our gaze somewhere else, to Traditions and Great Schools that have been dealing for many centuries with the development of many aspects of what we now call “expertise”. On the spiritual side, the Traditions included in this study extend from Yoga to Taoism and from the various Tantras to Kabbalah. On the artistic side, Schools such as Iwama Aikido, Wing Tsun, and Russian piano School have been considered. Classic Epistemology is also taken into account. Be it out of ignorance or out of hesitance, seldom do we turn our gaze to discover the richness such Traditions have in so many aspects, no less in matters pertaining to Sports Science. This paper is a first effort to map some of the most important findings several such Traditions treasure and keep for their practitioners. The results of this exploration consist of insights about overlooked performance parameters such as breathing, slow practice, visualizations, sleep practices, basics, relaxation and psychotherapy.

European Journal of Physical Education and Sport. 2022. 10(1): 50-62.
DOI: 10.13187/ejpe.2022.1.50CrossRef

Abstract:
It is widely presumed that young who study physical education at one of several universities of physical education (Sarajevo-BIH) could be characterized with proper physique and body composition (BC). Aim of the current study was to analyze the body composition of a male students Physical Education and Sport (PES), University in Sarajevo, by BIA and determine the significance of inter correlation coefficients (ICC). In study the participants consist 38 male students of Faculty of Physical Education and Sport, University of Sarajevo, the III year of study (Body height = 181.07 ± 6.15 cm; Body weight = 82.41 ± 13.69 kg; BMI = 25.07 ± 3.32 kg/m²). Results of the study showed that the body composition is within the healthy (allowed) values recommended for this population of students (Body Fat = 13.23 kg or 15.28 %; Body Muscle = 65.28 kg or 79.21 %; Body Water = 50.70 %; BMR = 1864.24 kCal and segmental …). ICC showed inverse and significantly high correlation (p = 0.000) between (ICC Fat-Muscle = -0.945), and while direct ICC was achieved (ICC Muscle vs. Water = 0.998; ICC Height vs. Muscle = 0.625; ICC Weight vs. Muscle = 0.919; ICC Weight vs. Water = 0.921; ICC Weight vs. Fat = 0.845). The obtained results of the study defined the appropriate body composition of the students, which is a consequence of their adequate physical activity and well-designed curricula at the home faculty. In parameters of body composition, students of physical education and sports in Sarajevo had good results of body composition in comparison with similar research on the student population of some European countries, which is the result of their somatotype, way of learning, teaching and extracurricular physical activities.
