The data had collected which hemoglobin levels use cynameth blood test and physical fitness data using MFT (multistage fitness test) running test. Data analysis conducted by using bivariateanalysislike Spearman rank correlation test.

Result and Discussion: the result has showed, there is a correlation between hemoglobin levels and physical fitness in taekwondo athletes for teenagers (p=00,27). The r value is 0,431 meansindicatethe strengthofcorrelationbetweenvariablesispositive.
