In gathering the data; Information form prepared by researchers questioning socio-demographic information of sportsman and "International Physical Activity Questionnaire" and "Resilience Scale for Adults" were used. Results: When the socio-demographic characteristics of the sportsmen are examined, 56.97% of them are male, 44.23% are students, 67.89% are high school and above graduates and 41.23% are 16 years and over. When the physical activity level of the sportsmen was examined, it was determined that 23.04% of them had minimal activity and 76.96% had very active physical activity. The score average of the resilience score of the sportsmen was calculated as 134.24 ± 6.48. When the demographic characteristics of the sportsmen were compared with the resilience score averages, it was found that male (p <0.05), students (p <0.05), high school and above education level (p <0.050.05) and those who were very active in terms of physical activity (p <0.05) were found to have higher resilience scores. Conclusions. In terms of resilience, women, self-employed and primary school graduates are at risk. Resilience is less risky for doing sports and having minimal physical activity. Regular and long-term Taekwondo sports have been shown to positively influence psychological well-being. When physical activity increased resilience level has also increased in the positive direction.
