ABSTRACT

There are many factors affecting Pencak Silat performance, including physical, mental and kicking technique. Based on the preliminary study, it was found that the sickle kick ability of PSN Badai Kuamang Kuning college athletes was low. Thus, the purpose of this study was to know the effect of leg muscle explosive power, agility and confidence on sickle kick. This research used the quantitative approach (path analysis). There were 30 male athletes aged 15-18 years taken as samples through total sampling technique. There were some instruments to gather the data: vertical jump test to measure the leg muscle explosive power, T-test for agility, a questionnaire for self-confidence and sickle kick test to know sickle kick ability. The results of the study show: 1) The influence of leg muscle explosive power was 40.9%, 2) the direct influence of agility was 36.3%, 3) the direct influence of self-confidence was 33.9%, 4) the indirect effect on leg muscle explosive power through self-confidence was 29.1%, 5) the indirect influence of agility through self-confidence was 17.8%, 6) the simultaneous influence of leg muscle explosive power, agility and confidence on the ability of the sickle kick was 70.2%.
