Abstract

The purpose of this research is to explore what relationship exists between Tae Kwon Do coaching leadership behaviors and Taiwanese collegiate Tae Kwon Do competitors’ satisfaction and determine whether there were differences in satisfaction with regard to demographics, experience, and achievement levels. This study will also investigate whether the coaches’ leadership skills have an impact on their competitors’ satisfaction with training and competing in Tae Kwon Do. The Leadership Scale for Sports (LSS) translated into Chinese by Cheng, Hsiao, and Mo (1997) was used to measure coaches’ behaviors; the Athlete Satisfaction Questionnaire (ASQ) translated into Chinese by Wang (2004) was used to measure competitors’ satisfaction. The results showed that there were significant correlations between the coaches’ leadership behaviors and total satisfaction score with Tae Kwon Do competition. All of the competitors’ perceptions o f coaches’ leadership behaviors in the LSS had significant strong positive correlations, but only degree of autocratic behavior had a negative correlation with the other leadership behaviors. Coaches’ leadership behaviors had strong relationships to affect Taiwanese collegiate Tae Kwon Do competitors’ satisfaction.
