The study compared the kinematics of the movement of the shock unit and the range of motion of the shoulder, in two main ways of performing the attack strike. Kinematic analysis was performed using the system of accelerometers that transmit three-dimensional image to the computer. The range of motion of the shoulder, linear and angular velocities was calculated. According to the data presented for each swing method, significant differences were observed in the maximum bending angles, angular and linear shoulder speeds. In each of the methods, high angular values of shoulder flexion during contact with the sword are shown, which puts high stress on the structure. However, shoulder flexion was significantly reduced when using the swing method, in which the shock link is held below the acromion.
