Finding of research indicates that significant difference be in the different parts of aggression between research types (p<0.001). Tukey test also shows that the most difference be in Kickboxing group and the least difference is in the karate and Swimming. Results shows that except Kickboxing field that is contactable and rough, athletes of other fields doesn’t have significant difference from aggression factors of non- athletes and this theory that athletes of non- contactable fields and limited contact with regard to non- athletes has more aggression doesn’t accept with the result of this research.
