Psychological constructs have effective on sport's progress. Hardiness and self-efficacy are effective construct. Individuals with more self-efficacy take heightened goals and more effort to achieve those goals. The purpose of this study was to examine relationship among hardiness, self-efficacy and perception of success of women’s karate in Kermanshah province. The methodology was applied based on purpose and correlation in terms of obtaining data. The population included all women’s karate of Kermanshah in 2017. To select a sample using random cluster sampling, according to Krejcie and Morgan table, 238 of 1000 karate were selected. For data collection, we used three questionnaires, short form of Hardiness (Kobasa, 1979), including 12 items, Perception of Success questionnaire (Tresure & Roberts, 1998), including 12 items and Curls’ exercise self-efficacy (2007), including 10 items. The validity (Contextual, Convergent and Divergent) and reliability (Factor load, Composite reliability coefficient, Cronbach's alpha coefficient) of questionnaires were good. The results of testing hypotheses using t test and path coefficient (β), revealed that hardiness has strong and significant impact on the sport self-efficacy and perception of success of women’s karate with 0.88 and 0.61 impact factor, respectively and exercise self-efficacy can play mediating role in the relationship between hardiness and perception of success. The main purpose of sports championship is sports success. The impact of psychological conditions on the success of athletes, especially athletes of combat, is not overlooked. By reviewing more psychological variables, we can make scientific and targeted planning for success in championship sports.
