Nowadays, kick test in Taekwondo is conducted manually with stopwatch and cannot be taken independently. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to design and create Chagi test device which can measure the kick speed, accuracy and concentration of both junior and senior Taekwondo students. This device is expected to facilitate the test and will recorded the result of the test. Every result of kick test will be recorded in a database which can be seen in a form of graphic. Aside of test, this device can also be utilized for practice equipment for the students. This device allows the students to practice kick and concentration without coach, but by using the system of this device. This research uses Research and Development method with ADDIE Model. The Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation (ADDIE) Model is used as a framework to develop this device. The implementation of “Chagi Test” was done with 33 participants consist of 13 junior students 17 senior students and 3 coachs. The test was done on the feasibility and effectiveness of this device. The result of the design and development are hardware, namely E-mattress, E-Sandsack, kick indicator and software like NFF.chagitest. Hardware control system using micro-controller ATmega16 and serial communication using k-125r modules. The Nff.chagitest software is used as an interface created using visual basic 6.0 program where the test result indicated that this device is feasible to be used in kick test and kick practices. The Chagi test Testing consist of interface design, as well as device feasibility and effectiveness. The existing test result graphs can be used to view student progress and as a basis for training evaluation.
