Objective: In this survey, it was aimed to examine the anger management levels of the athletes in the Kickbox teams. Method: The survey population was constituted by 2500 athletes (70 provinces, 1700 male and 800 female students) participating in Turkey Kickboxing Championships between 14-22 July 2016 in Sakarya. The sample of the survey was constituted by 243 athletes (148 male and 95 female) willing to be part of the survey. Percent (%) and frequency (f) and Mann-Whitney U analyzes were made in order to determine the demographic distributions of the individuals participating in the study. In the survey, the change of anger management level of athletes according to gender variable was examined at a level of ? = 0.05 significance. Findings: According to the results of Mann-Whitney U test to determine whether there is a significant difference in the level of continuous anger management of the Kickbox athletes according to gender variable; it is observed that male athletes are more likely to adopt higher levels of anger management than female athletes for the athletes’ opinions of “I am hot-blooded” (U=2417,5:p <0,05). “I am angry-tempered” (U=2332,5:p<0,05). “I am fury” (U=1862,5:p <0,05). “Work of others that slows me down makes me angry” (U=2547,5:p <0,05). “Being criticized in front of others makes me angry very much.” (U=:1955,0 p <0,05). “I want to hit someone when I am hindered.” (U=2058,0: p <0,05). For the distribution according to behaviors of the controlled anger; it is observed that male athletes are more likely to adopt higher levels of anger management than female athletes for the opinions of “I control my anger.” (U=4374,5: p <0,05). “I am patient against others.” (U=5968,5: p <0,05). “I can stop myself before I get out of control.” (U=5981,0: p <0,05). “I control my feelings of anger.” (U=4353,5:p <0,05). For the distribution according to the behaviors of the out bursting anger; it is observed that male athletes are more likely to adopt higher levels of anger management for the opinions of “I show my anger” (U=4744,0: p <0,05). “I say acid remarks to others” (U=5408,5: p <0,05). “I do things like slamming doors.” (U=4218,5: p <0,05). “I say bad words” (U=5377,5:p <0,05). And that male athletes are more likely to adopt higher levels of anger management for the opinions of “I can not control my anger” (U=5931,0: p <0,05). “I tell how I feel to the person who annoys me.” (U=5566,5: p <0,05). For the distribution according to behaviors displayed to controlled anger; It is observed that male athletes are more likely to adopt the opinion of; “I repress my anger” (U=4910,0: p <0,05). “I am boiled over but I don’t show it” (U=2015,5: p <0,05). “I secretly criticize people a lot” (U=5708,0: p <0,05) and female athletes are more likely to adopt the opinion of “I am more angry than I have shown.” (U=5466,0: p <0,05). “I feel more annoyed than people realize.” (U=6428,0: p <0,05). Result: According to the gender variable of kickbox athletes; it is observed that continuous anger situations in male sportsmen are higher, but they are able to control their anger compared to women in controlled anger situations. It can be said that the level of outbursts of anger of female athletes is a little higher than that of male athletes, that is, they can easily express their anger. For repressed levels of anger; male and female athletes often control their anger by suppressing it, but it seems that men control their anger a little more. The survey may have effects on the participation of athletes in activities related to anger control and good-management of anger control processes by pursuing the survey on different groups.
