Background. The aim of the research is to determine whether the karate culture is a regulator of relationship between an acceptable level of violence in different kumite systems and competitors’ personality traits.
Material and methods. In order to conduct the research five samples were taken. Each sample consisted of deliberately chosen thirty seniors – men aged from 18 to 39; they came from four systems of kumite sportsmanship – Shotokan, Kyokushin, Oyama, Shidokan – and from a group of orienteering runners. In order to conduct the research the Personality Inventory Five Factor Model was used. The Social Approval Questionnaire (SAQ) was used in order to verify the reliability of the respondents. The test analysis was performed using Statistica 10’s statistical methods.
Results. The results of the research indicate that karatekas of different systems of kumite with different levels of violence do not stand out with superlative personality traits compared to non-contact sports athletes and non-training male population. Karatekas are characterized by indexes similar to orienteering runners (athletes in other disciplines).
Conclusions. The karatekas of different systems of kumite with different levels of violence do not stand out with superlative personality traits, compared to non-contact sports athletes and non-training male population.
