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.To most martial arts is about the hard-style, external arts such as Karate and Maui Thai.
Study subjects practiced karate dance for 5 minutes daily after the first lecture in March until the last lecture in May.

Introduction Karate consists of kihon, kata, and kumite training.Kihon involves basic techniques, whereas kata and kumite are two types of competition.The discipline is complex and requires considerable physical and mental resources.It usually takes hard, long-term training to automatize and efficiently apply all the techniques (Katić, Blazević, Krstulović, & Mulić, 2005) .Tai Chi styles practiced today came from the Chen family. According to Tao-te Ching, the core Taoist texts, the feeling of being one with the "Way" can only be experienced and not just known.Yang studied the Chen style and modified it to form the Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan, which is the style commonly practiced today. One must coordinate all the body, the brain, the breathing to realize the feeling of being connected to everything.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.
