The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of kicking velocity on inductive values of electronic body protector during a roundhouse kick. Six elite collegiate taekwondo player participated in the study. Each participant performed five 90°roundhouse kick as hard as possible and record the inductive values of electronic body protector. Kicking velocity of kicking leg was measured by motion analysis system. The results showed that kicking velocity before impact of the highest scoring kick was significantly higher than that of lowest scoring kick. In addition, impact kicking velocity of the highest scoring kick was significantly higher than that of the lowest scoring kick. In conclusion, inductive values of the electronic body protector were increased by improving kick velocity at the moment of foot contact.
