INFLUENCE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL EMOTIONS ON COGNITIVE CAPACITY OF TAEKWONDO ATHLETES
Taekwondo helps to strength health and cultivate moral character. However, taekwondo athletes have different emotional states under competitive pressure, which may affect their cognitive capacity. Drawing on the theories of sports psychological emotion, this paper explores the psychological emotion of taekwondo athletes, and discusses how different psychological emotions affect the cognitive capacity of these athletes. Professional taekwondo athletes in Henan and Shandong were randomly sampled for a questionnaire survey, using a five-point scale. The survey results were subjected to detailed statistical analysis. The results show that taekwondo athletes produce negative psychology emotions under competitive pressure, such as anxiety, hostility and fear; positive emotion promotes the cognitive capacity of taekwondo athletes; positive and negative emotions differ greatly in their impacts on the cognitive capacity of taekwondo athletes. The research results lay the theoretical basis for the scientific training of taekwondo athletes.
