The purpose of this study was to obtain the fundamental data of impact force on the Shomen-Uchi movement in Kendo. Four Kinds of Shomen-Uchi movements were analyzed by motion analysis system using the video tape recorder and impact force was measured simultaneously. The subjects for this study were 5 male Kendo players,33 to 42 years of age, with 20 to 30 years of training experience and 5 to 7dan degree.The results were summarized as follows:1. The downward maximum magnitude of impact force on movement A was greatest among four kinds of Shomen-Uchi movements (movement A: 144.41±41.07Kgw, movement B 144.25±35.78Kgw, movement C: 120.80±36.74Kgw, movement D: 127.81±32.23Kgw).2. The forward maximum magnitude of impact force on movement C was greatest among four kinds of Shomen-Uchi movements (movement A: 46.45±15.48Kgw, movement B: 61.45±20.90kgw, movement C: 80.80±24.05Kgw, movement D: 74.93±17.96Kgw).3. It was shown that the larger the maximum Shinai angle (the angle between Shinai and horizontal line) on the phase of backswing of Shinai is, the more the maximum magnitude of impact force (Fz) of the Shomen-Uchi movement increases.4. At the impact, a significant relationship between the trunk angle (the angle between trunk and horizontal line) and the forward impact force was seen.5. In the phase of downswing of Shinai on the Shomen-Uchi movement, a significant relationship between the impact force (Fz) and the downward maximum velocity of the top of Shinai was observed.
