In this study, the objective was to examine the antropometric and some performance spesifications of 25 national women athletes in İzmir, ages between 16-18, wrestlers and karate doers. Of 25 athletes, 11 of them are National Female Wrestlers (age average:17,36, height:165 cm, weight:59,36 kg) and 14 of them are National Female Karate Athletes (age average:17,28, height:166 cm, weight:56,32 kg). Mann Whitney-U test was used in order to determine the variables and differences between two fields, wrestling and karate, for the values 20 m running, right hand grip strength, left hand grip strength, leg strength, vertical jump, standing jump, body measurements and fat measurements. For 20 m sprint, there were significant differences between these two sports fields (z=-4,218; p<0,05). Wrestlers had higher points than karate doers had in 20 m sprint test. In terms of other values, there was no difference between these fields. Body measurements were compared of athletes of two fields. There were significant differences between two fields in terms of scapular, waist, biceps extension, biceps flexion and fore arm flexion measurements (p<0,05). When mean ranks examined, wrestlers have wider measurements than karate doers do. Fat measurements were compared. There were significant differences between athletes of two fields for the values biceps, sub-scapula, abdomen, supra-illiak, quadriceps and (p<0,05). When mean ranks examined, wrestlers have higher body fat percentages than karate doers do. At the end, differences were determined in terms of physical structure and motoric system suitable for characteristics of both fields.
