In a sample of 50 of the best Serbian kick-boxer, divided into two groups (16 and 34 elite subelitna), applied a battery of tests for the assessment of 7 morphological and functional variables 2. The aim of this study was to determine the importance of the difference between the elite and subelitnih kick-boxer in relation to each variable and applied to test how each of them is associated with the level of competitive success. The application of discriminant statistical analysis was found to be an elite and subelitni kickboxer differ significantly in three variables: one anthropometric (body height) and two functional (maximal oxygen consumption and anaerobic threshold level). Correlation analysis showed that these three variables significantly associated with competitive success kick-boxer, the level značajnostiod 0.05. When it applied stricter criteria conclusion (0.01), significant relationship with the qualitative level has been confirmed only in variable-anaerobic threshold.
