|Pilot multidimensional description of dance–fight relation is main purpose of this research. In this paper we are focusing on Irish dancers and their opinion to Irish dance and karate practitioners and their opinion on karate to better uncover their attitude, feelings and motivation in these, at first sight, such different sports. The main goal of this paper is to present an analysis of the mindset and feelings of Irish dancers, especially towards Irish dance, then presentation of analysis of the mindset and feelings of karate practitioners, especially towards karate. And finally we compare results we got. Participants older than 18 years and with more than one year dance or martial art practice have been questioned with the same question: “What does (particular activity) mean for you?” We have used focus group methodology, as well as brainstorming for obtaining data. All statements, have been written down for future analysis. All words we put together and chose 56, which were intersection of all groups (martial arts groups and dance groups). The last step was using Q-sort to sort the words. Dancing groups differences depend mostly on motivation, structure and dynamics of the group. Especially in our group friendship and joy of dance is very important. Dancers don’t connect Irish dance with aggression, tactic or negative emotion. For karate practitioners are highly important self improvement, friendship training and physical condition. Karate for them is not connected with audience, alcohol, negative emotions, exhibition or shower. Conclusion. This Q-sort shows not only participant’s attitude to Irish dance and karate but it also helps us to find better motivation for them. Both groups of sportsmen agree that friendship, joy and physical condition are very important for them. On the other end of the scale they similarly placed aggression and negative emotion. These similarities refer to high importance of being part of a social group.
