To achieve this goal, the following methods were used: 1) analysis and synthesis of domestic and foreign scientific and information sources of literature on the problem of research; 2) pedagogical supervision; 3) testing; 4) methods of static and mathematical processing of recorded data for the purpose of their subsequent interpretation 5) biometric methods (content analysis). At the same time, three educational organizations of the city of Belgorod acted as a research base, whose students were involved in the educational and training process. The participants of the experimental part of the study were kickboxers, whose training was conducted from 2011 to 2021.
