Abstract

As part of observational methodology, we designed an ad hoc observation instrument that enables sequential study of
the different actions performed during karate combat. Using statistics and the detection of time patterns, this study seeks to
compare technical and tactical performance in adult and youth competition and it also highlights important differences in
competition in both of these categories.

Keywords: 12-13 years, adult, karate, kumite, metodología observacional, observational methodology.
