The objective of this paper is to determine the link between police officers’ motor abilities and their achievements in the martial arts.
The research involved a sample of 140 police officers employed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Croatia.
The sample of criterion variables involves evaluating five groups of elements that are used to assess the quality of performing martial arts elements: N1 – strikes and blocks; N2 – judo falls and throwing; N3 – arrest techniques; N4 – defence against an unarmed attacker; and N5 – defence against an armed attacker. The quality of a performance was evaluated by three kinesiologists who are martial arts instructors.
The sample of predictor variables involves 17 tests for assessing motor abilities and one test for assessing functional abilities.
Regression analyses revealed a significant correlation between the predictor variables and each of the five criterion variables. The link between the police officers’ achievements in the martial arts and their motor abilities was defined according to the following variables: side steps, standing long jump, throwing a 3-kg medicine ball, push-ups in one minute, overhand grip pull-ups on a bar, and squats in one minute.
It may be concluded from the research results that attention should be paid in the martial arts training of police officers to developing and improving their coordination, agility, as well as their explosive and repetitive strength.

Nexus between manifest motor indicators and fluid intelligence in prepubertal boysJurij Planinšec
, 2006, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between manifest motor indicators and the fluid intelligence of boys. The sample comprised 550 boys aged 10 to 14. A battery of 26 tests was used for measuring motor performance. Intelligence testing was implemented with the test TN-20. A multiple regression analysis indicated that association between motor variables and fluid intelligence exists. The closest connection was the one between fluid intelligence and motor tasks which demand the coordination of movement in rhythm and the speed of movement. The associations between motor performance and fluid intelligence were age dependent: in 12 year old boys the connection between motor variables and fluid intelligence is the highest, followed by 14 year old boys, where it is a little lower; the connection is the lowest in 10 year old boys. The results suggest that developmental changes have a significant influence on the relations between motor performance and fluid intelligence.

The concept of team-work in the early childhood : the correlation between motor and foreign language learning in the early childhoodPolona Oblak

Opis: Collaborative teaching is used in many kindergartens, schools, colleges and universities around the world in order to foster learnersć enthusiasm, social skills and to promote interdisciplinary learning. In Slovenia the instruction to use this new method started in kindergartens and primary schools and two years ago in the secondary grammar schools around Slovenia. Unfortunately, team-teaching can sometimes be enforced and imposed onto professors with no firm aim or goal previously set. Such team - work can neither satisfy learners' needs, nor can it offer a stimulating environment for the professors involved in this fairly new method. Team-teaching method was used in a pilot project with very young learners of English called "Sports and English". It is believed that more professors working together can elaborate more dynamic, flexible, creative, interdisciplinary and methodologically demanding projects. Apparently, learning different skills by using various approaches in the early years helps with whole child development, because learning affects different fields of psychophysical development in similar ways. The key to this learning is the engagement of unconscious psychological processes, such as recognition, perception, etc. There are similar processes going on different learning activities, such as solving in problems through motor activities and foreign language learning. This research space focuses on the correlation between motor efficiency and the level of foreign language acquisition. The examples of good practice in the pilot project 'Sports and English' are presented in terms of team-teaching of two professors, and consequently cross-curricular disciplines and assessment. Not only does team teaching have a great impact on developing learners' multiple intelligences and learning styles, it also develops social skills and the perception of individuals. Finally, correlation of the two disciplines with two professors contributes tremendously to whole child development.

Analysis of motor abilities between male gymnasts of two different countriesMiha Marinšek

Opis: The purpose of the research was to find the differences in motor abilities between Slovenian gymnasts and Serbian gymnasts. We tested 94 male gymnasts from Slovenia and Serbia who were nine to fourteen years old and at the time of testing had been competing for at least two years. We classified gymnasts into three different age groups according to the competition system. We found that statistically significant differences between Slovenian and Serbian gymnasts existed in 18 out of 27 variables and were mostly in favour of Slovenian gymnasts. Most of the differences were detected in specific motor abilities. In our opinion Slovenian gymnasts performed the tests better mostly because of the lack of coaching knowledge and lack of working conditions in Serbian gymnastics.
