The purpose was to study a comparison of height of center of gravity and anthropometric variablesrelated to balance of judo players in comparison to performance . The data wascollected using portable electronicweighing machine and anthropometric rod for weight and height respectively. Tomeasure the height of center of gravity standardized methods explained andrecommended by H.S.Sodhi (1980), Das and Ganguli (1982), H. Clark (1987),Watthew and Fox (1981) etc. was adopted.. To meet the objectives of the studyfollowing statistics have been computed(1) Mean (2).Standard deviation ( 3) percentage . Hypothesis was testedat 0 .0 5 level of significance. The judo weight categories were found to be significantly different inregard to selected variables, namely percentage height of center of gravity,height of c.g, height, weight. All the weight categories of judo playersdemonstrated significant relationship between weight and performance rankingamong the selected balance related variables namely height, center of gravityand percentage height of gravity.
