The purpose of this study is to compare the multiple intelligence level of athletes participating in Inter-University Kick Boxing Championships in Turkey according to different variables. The universe of the study is created by 650 athletes from 65 universities that attended to the Inter-University Kick-Boxing Championship in Turkey (between 06-11 March 2018). And the sample of the study is 87 athletes who voluntarily accepted to participate in the study. In the study, "Self-Assessment Inventory in Multiple Intelligence Areas," which was developed by Howard Gardner, translated into Turkish by Saban (2002) and whose validity and reliability (α = 0.93) were made, was used as the data collection tool in the study. SPSS 20 package program was used to analyze the data. The normality of the distribution was examined using the Shapiro Wilk test. It was observed that the available data had normal distribution. In the analysis of the data, descriptive statistical analysis, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) that compares the multiple intelligence levels of the athletes according to the universities they attend, the Tukey test, and the Independent sample t test that compares the multiple intelligence levels of the athletes according to the age variable were used. At the end of the study, depending on the age variable, Linguistic intelligence (p = .663; p <0.05), Logical intelligence (p = .724; p <0.05), Visual intelligence (p = 0.900; p <0.05), Musical intelligence (p = .815; p <0.05), Nature intelligence (p = .450; p <0.05), Interpersonal intelligence (p = .713; p <0.05), Kinesthetic intelligence (p = .548; p <0.05), Intrinsic intelligence (p = .799; p <0.05) no significant difference was found between the sub-dimension levels and the ages of the athletes.
