This study analyzed the effect of regular Taekwondo training for 16 weeks on physical fitness and growth index depending on different IGF-1 gene polymorphisms. The subjects of the study were 44 male students who were 8 year years old. The IGF-1 gene showed the highest frequency of 18 CA repeat (190 bp) in 50% of subjects, and was found in the homozygote (n= 11), heterozygote (n= 22) and non-carriers (n= 11). The results of the physical fitness and growth index among the gene polymorphism groups indicated no …
