POSSIBILITIES TO OPTIMIZE THE STAND-UP WRESTLING EFFICIENCY BY IMPROVING THE TAKEDOWN PROCEDURES
Through this research we aim at bringing our contribution to the improvement of the takedown procedures in the training process, through some efficient means conceived after the analysis of the basic mechanism composing the action, but also to the knowledge of the duration of some procedures or actions - after the video recording of the takedown procedures. The research was conducted at the School Sports Club (SSC) of Buzău, in the period between 9 September 2010 and 9 March 2011, within the Greco-Roman Wrestling section, cadets - participants in the Individual National Championships, trained by M. Iuliu Vasilescu. The applied methodology proved its efficiency, which was validated by our experimental approach. During the experiment, the capacity to apply the takedown procedures significantly increased in the experimental group, as compared to the control group, which validates the hypothesis of our research and the methodology of manipulating the experimental variables.
