Abstract: This study examined the emotional intelligence as related to contact sports groups, judo and wrestling male players. To obtain data, the investigators had selected Hundred (N=100) male players of 19 to 25 years of age to act as subjects. They were divided into two groups: (i.e., N1 = 50; judo players N2 = 50; wrestlers). The purposive sampling technique was used to select the subjects. All the subjects, after having been informed about the objective and protocol of the study, gave their consent and volunteered to participate in this study. To measure the level of emotional intelligence of the subjects, the emotional intelligence scale constructed by Hyde et.al (2001) was administered. One Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was employed to compare the mean score. For testing the hypotheses, the level of significance was set at 0.01. The results revealed significant difference with regard to the variable of emotional intelligence between judo and wrestling male players. The results revealed that judo players were better on emotional intelligence as compared to wrestlers.
