Study on Specific Karate Training on Children’s Visuomotor---Depth Space and Width Space

Project Details


Vision plays an essential role in human motion control. Thus, visuaomotor not only is very important to children’s motion development, but also has a great influence on life learning, intelligence and physical coordinate ability. It is a significant ability which coordinates perceptive and motion information. It is also a complete process that brain receives, manages and recognizes the visual stimulations (Case-Smith, 2010). Children with slow visuomotor ability will have intelligence below average (Frostig, 1997). Visuomotor learning involves space perception, depth perception, discovery and model identification. Specific observation of goal and agile response are included and attention is also related.(Ahissar & Hochsein, 2004; Paffen, Verstraten & Vidnynszky, 2008; Roelfsema & Van-Ooyen, 2010; Tsushima & Watanabe, 2009) Combat sports and perception training emphasize on specific observation of goal and agile response more. Clinically, there are various studies on improvement of children’s visuomotor. However, few studies particularly deal with space and training of goal attention and wide discovery in karate. In order to know if this kind of training in karate might improve children’s visuomotor —depth perception and peripheral vision, this study designs 6-week karate training courses about three-dimension space and goal attention and wide discovery which are based on references. Children’s visuomotor performance — depth space (depth perception) and width space (peripheral vision) before and after courses are evaluated and taken as reference for future use.
