Objective: This study was designed to analyze the impact of Algerian judo competition modality on vertical jump performance, grip strength test and perceived effort responses.

Methods: For the proposed 34 male judoka athletes participated in the present study. All their performance was verified based on the Algeria modality competition that consisted form 4 min fight separated by 15 min of rest. Judo-Ji grip strength tests (JGST), countermovement jump (CMJ) and rate of perceived exertion (RPE) were measured before and after each competition, while RPE of specific areas was assessed after three competitions. ANOVA for repeated measures was used to compare strength parameters after each contest with the level of significance set at 5%.

Results: our results showed a significant decrease of jump height (p = 0.001) and vertical impulse in the CMJ (p = 0.00), as well as a reduction of the number of reps in the JGST (p < 0.00). In the opposite of significant increase of RPE throughout the competition (p < 0.00), not RPE between the upper and lower body (p = 0.00).

Conclusion: We conclude that Algerian modality judo competition generated a decrease of performance in both upper and lower limbs and provoked a progressive increase in the effort perception over the fighter.
