Аннотация: An increase in the psycho-physiological level as well as technical and tactical readiness in martial arts refers to the leading factors allowing an athlete to effectively conduct a bout with an opponent. The study of various means and methods aimed at optimizing these factors is an urgent problem in the sports world. Research aim: Показать полностьюto study the effect of transcranial electrical stimulation to improve the psychophysiological stability, technical and tactical readiness of MMA fighters. Research materials and methods. The research project was carried out in the pre-competition period with MMA athletes engaged in wrestling clubs in St. Petersburg (Russia) participation. CG and EG groups were formed, each of 10 people aged 18-27. The training structure was the same in both groups (2 times a day with an interval of 6 hours). In EG, for 8 days, the course of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) was used, which consisted of 1 daily session in the afternoon, in the interval of 1-2 hours before training. Some tests were used to study the psycho-physiological status of all athletes: «Distribution of attention», «Memory for numbers», « Information reception», « Stress level» and «Immediate recall test». The state of the athletes' body vegetative balance was assessed by heart rate variability (HRV). With the use of control exercises and analysis of control bouts video recordings, CG and EG athletes' high-stakes testing of the technical and tactical readiness was carried out. Research results. At the beginning of the project, the psycho-physical as well as technical and tactical indicators of the athletes in both groups did not significantly differ from each other. At the end of the project, the values of all indicators of psycho-physiological tests and heart rate variability were significantly better for the athletes of the EG than for the athletes of the CG. Conducting a tDCS course in EG athletes affected a significantly greater increase in quantitative and qualitative indicators of the level of technical and tactical readiness of MMA fighters'. Conclusions. The use of transcranial electrical stimulation during the annual macrocycle for mixed martial arts athletes in the pre-competition period showed a high efficiency of increasing their technical and tactical readiness and urgent recovery after intensive training activities. © JPES.
