Now the relationship in comparison between the mindfulnessand the cognition can be considered as an important toped of the research thatis only began recently to unravel. So the aim of this study was todetermine the level of mindfulness ; hand eyecoordination and strength for fencing player .
Also Todetermine whether the gender differences in mindfulnesswere exist within samples of fencing players. Moreover thecurrent study aimed to address handedness differences in fencing regardingto hand eye coordination and strength. We hypothesise that fencing players havea good mindfulness and strength, good hand eye coordination and there is agender and handedness differences regarding to hand eye coordination, strengthand mindfulness , in this study we will attempt to find the relationshipbetween both of the strength of mindfulness and the hand – eye coordinationamong the elite fencers ? Material andMethodsParticipants Participants Studysample consists of sixteen national fencers (Jordanian national team), agedbetween ( 14 to 23) years8 males (M = 16.87 , SD = 3.52) and 8 females ( M = 15.12yr , SD = 2.
03 ) , Research Instruments and Procedure The Arabic version ofThe Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) is used to assess mindfulness.It is consisted of a 39 items of higher scores that indicate the greater levelsof mindfulness (Baer, et al., 2006, al awamleh2015). The five facets were observeddescribed , acted with awareness, also non – judging of theinner experience and non – reactivity to inner experience . we used acoefficient of an internal consistency so we can determine the reliability ofthe Arabic version of the (FFMQ) in accordance with theCronbach ) alpha result. The coefficient of the internalreliability of the Arabic Version of the (FFMQ)indicated that the stability of the test was acceptable.
The significant levelthat was reached due to the reliability values were (** 0.69) . Hand grip dynameters was used for themeasuring of the maximum isometric strength for the hand and arm muscles.
Because handgrip strength is an important factor or element for the fencingplayers. Procedure : the dynamometers must be held at the hand that should betested. The arm should be in the right angles and at the same time the elbowmust be by the side of the body. The dynamometer can be adjusted if that isrequired – as the base should rest on the first metacarpal while the handleshould be rested on the middle of the four fingers. When the athlete is readyhe should squeezes the dynamometer with maximum isometric effort then this stepwill maintain for about five seconds.
During this step no other body movementis permitted. Steadiness Tester Hole Type used to assess Hand-eye coordination( Fig 2). The athletes mission here is to hold a metal –tipped stylus in a nine progressively smaller holes that differ in size asfollow ((1.156; 1.125;0.
