S. Skovoroda Kharkiv National Pedagogical University. The experiment lasted during the fall semester. Using the Framingham method for analyzing weekly timing, the study conducted a survey among the students on their level of motor activity and performed a functional movement screen testing. To tentatively evaluate the cause and effect relationship between the level of motor activity and the occurrence of a pathological movement pattern, the study used the Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. The characteristics between the groups were analyzed by using the Mann-Whitney test for comparing the distribution of ordinal variables.</p> <p><strong>Results.</strong> The correlation analysis showed that the first-year students’ motor activity was positively related to the results of functional movement screening (R=+0.69, p&lt; 0.05). At the same time, the students (EG1) who mainly had a high level of physical activity at physical education classes showed low values of functional movement evaluation, compared to the students (EG2) participating in extra-curricular physical activity. In EG1, the overall screening score was 10.3±0.7, in EG2 — 14.2±0.9 (p&lt;0.05).</p> <p><strong>Conclusions.</strong> The students with insufficient weekly motor activity had risk values of the test (10.3±0.7), which requires further analysis of the causes of a pathological movement pattern. The study results have confirmed the existence of the relationship between motor activity indicators and functional movement evaluation (R=+0.69, p&lt;0.05). This provides a way to use the screening method of determining motor competence for the effectiveness evaluation of health and fitness programs, but further research is needed.</p> S. Pashkevich I.

The researchers analyzed training programs and competition rules of the most popular combat sports, constituent documents of public associations engaged in hand-to-hand combat development, normative documents on physical training of law enforcement agencies, the Armed Forces of Ukraine and armies of the world’s leading countries.</p> <p><strong>Results.</strong> Hand-to-hand combat is closely related to solving military tasks. Due to its ability to adapt to modern military requirements, it is included in military training programs of various law enforcement agencies, the Armed Forces of Ukraine and armies of many countries of the world. The sports type of hand-to-hand combat is the basis for shaping and improving professional and applied skills and has its peculiarities, namely combat (applied) sections included in its training program and competition rules. The analysis of regulatory documents of hand-to-hand combat competitions of different levels among adults held in Ukraine in 2014-2016 proved that the overwhelming majority of them, 65% (of the total number of competitions held among adults) are competitions among employees of various law enforcement agencies and servicepersons. The analysis of competition rules revealed the peculiarities of organizing and holding competitions in this sport, in particular the possibility to hold competitions demonstrating the techniques used in standard situations of a real combat with an enemy, with and without weapons. This provides an opportunity to control servicepersons’ and law enforcement officers’ proficiency level of the applied section.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions.</strong> The modern hand-to-hand combat is a unique sport that combines sports and applied types. Due to its peculiarities, it is currently a significant part of combat and professional training of servicepersons and law enforcement officers.</p> Yu. Radchenko H. Korobeinykov A. Chernozub H.

According to it, a scientific and theoretical study does not consider relatively independent components separately, but in a combination, in a system with others. A systems approach made it possible to reveal integrative, systematic features and qualitative characteristics absent in individual elements forming the system. To define the terminology that describes energy-information interactions, the research used a discrete-continuous approach. The research object was the existence of appropriate terminology that meets the requirements of modern science.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>. The paper presents a model describing a person in the form of a discrete-continuous system, with the focus on energy aspects and information technology. Information technology systemizes knowledge representation, creates logical and computational tools for establishing regularities from primary information arrays, constructs information systems. The research clarified the following terms: infotomation is obtaining information knowledge on the layer-by-layer structure of the study object organization; information indicators are natural indicators transformed into a normalized relative form, according to the natural indicator position on the scale of its change. The form makes it possible to obtain an information evaluation of the system state by this indicator; information model is an information knowledge in a formula or algorithmic form.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions.</strong> The research studied the definitions that describe energy-information interactions for the systems of material points and continuous medium.</p> A.

The study used the following methods: analysis and collation of scientific and methodological literature, general scientific methods of theoretical level, such as analogy, analysis, synthesis, abstraction, induction, as well as general scientific methods of empirical level: observation, testing, experiment. To evaluate motor preparedness, the study recorded the results of motor tests, body height and weight. The IBM SPSS 20 statistical analysis software was used to process the study materials. A factor analysis was performed, for which the study used principal component analysis with the rotation method: Variamax with Kaiser Normalization.</p> <p><strong>Results.</strong> The analysis of similarities shows that the most informative tests in the structure of motor preparedness of the 5th grade girls are the following: test&nbsp;11 “Evaluation of the ability for vestibular (statokinetic) stability. Running with turns” (.884), test&nbsp;9 “Static equilibrium evaluation by E.&nbsp;Ya.&nbsp;Bondarevsky’s method” (.826), test&nbsp;6 “Evaluation of the sense of movement speed in sprinting” (.824); of the 6th grade girls — test&nbsp;11 “Evaluation of the ability for vestibular (statokinetic) stability. Running with turns” (0.884), test&nbsp;9 “Static equilibrium evaluation by E.&nbsp;Ya.&nbsp;Bondarevsky’s method” (.826), test&nbsp;6 “Evaluation of the sense of movement speed in sprinting” (.824); of the 7th grade girls — test&nbsp;8 “Evaluation of the ability to differentiate movement speed (reproduction accuracy of running speed at 90% intensity of maximum)” (.902), test&nbsp;11 “Evaluation of the ability for vestibular (statokinetic) stability. Running with turns” (.900), test&nbsp;1 “30 m running (s)” (.869).</p> <p><strong>Conclusions.</strong> In the structure of coordination abilities of the 5th-7th grade girls, the most informative components are the sense and differentiation of running speed, vestibular stability in exercises that require static and dynamic equilibrium. To carry out pedagogical control of coordination preparedness of 5th-7th grade girls, the study recommends using the following tests: test&nbsp;11 “Evaluation of the ability for vestibular (statokinetic) stability. Running with turns”, test&nbsp;9 “Static equilibrium evaluation by E.&nbsp;Ya.&nbsp;Bondarevsky’s method”, test&nbsp;6 “Evaluation of the sense of movement speed in sprinting”.</p> O. Ivashchenko V.
