Bivariate correlations showed that most of the motor ability tests correlated with each other, which was confirmed in linear regression models with medicine ball throwing as the outcome and body weight, 4 × 5 m shuttle run, and long jump as significant predictors.Factor analysis extracted a single latent factor from all five motor ability tests.
Therefore, the current study examined whether a significant relationship exists and investigated its duration; this also shed light on the intrinsic interactive characteristics of several motor ability tests. Ethical approval was provided by the Human Research Ethics Committee of the Education University of Hong Kong.
Consent forms were collected from both students’ parents and the school. Interventions The intervention involved ten sessions. A 90-minute lecture on physical activity was given in each session.
In a study that investigated the influence of motor behavior on karate kata performance, it was found that 30 seconds of sit-ups, standing broad jump, 20-m run, and three other motor ability test results had the greatest and most significant influence on kata performance (Doder, Malacko, Stanković, & Doder, 2013) .
Mikić, Mehinović, and Shala (2009) reported a canonical correlation between basic motor abilities and karate competitor efficacy; more specifically, competition efficacy depends largely on the movement speed of arms and legs, the segmented speed of the arms, and the explosive strength of the lower extremities.

This study determined the relation between karate training and five specific motor abilities of primary school children with no previous karate experience.
In Tai Chi Chuan, movement with meditation is done with the purpose of realizing connectivity by feeling in tune with the omnipotent force Chi, or in Japanese, Zen.
Chi is everything everywhere; we are all a part of it and so, are connected to each other.
Study subjects practiced karate dance for 5 minutes daily after the first lecture in March until the last lecture in May. Instruments In addition to the anthropometric characteristics of the study subjects (weight and height), five motor fitness measurements were taken, according to a modified version of the European Physical Fitness Test (Nowak, 1994; Osi?
ski, 2000), the International Physical Fitness Test (Pilicz, 2005), and the Sekita Test (Mamola, 2005; Nowak, 1994).
