Description The aim of the study was to determine the level of response capabilities among students of Special Education of Security Sections study programme (SEBS), physically inactive persons and to provide comparison with results of combat sports athletes based on literature research. Students of SEBS were tested in June 2017 by the Vienna Testing System. The data were processed by the Vienna Testing System and followed by descriptive statistics using excel. Data interpretation was performed by comparing with available literature, especially with the available standards of the Vienna Testing System - results of normal population and the professional athletes of combat sports The mean reaction time for the reaction test was 261,20 ms. According to the standards of a representative sample SEBS in the group the average percentile was 72.60 and compared with a standard based on the age of the average the result was 62.13 percentile. The average time for motor response SEBS was 118.47 ms. The average percentile compared with a representative sample was 78.40 and compared with standards based on age was 61.73 percentile value. For determination test, the number of correct answers for SEBS reached the average of 251.13 and compared with the standard based on a representative sample the average percentile was 64.67. In comparison with the standard based on age the average percentile was 39.20. In reaction test the average reaction time differed only in values between 10ms between tested groups. Group “medal Taekwon-do” achieved the best results. Time average and motor reactions differed only in the range 10ms and SEBS group achieved the best time. In the determination test group “nomedal Taekwon –do” achieved the highest average number of correct answers. Group SEBS was second and group “medal Taekwon-do” was third. Group SEBS reached lower average median reaction time.
