An investigationwas done to find the relation between selected kinematic variables and the performance of uprise on rings in men’s artistic gymnastics.The study was conducted on national-level gymnasts. The data on angular kinematic variables were collected on four different phases of uprise on rings. Linear kinematic variables were identifiedon two different phases of uprise on rings. The angular kinematic variables did not show any significant relationship at the 0.05 level at the Dislocation Phase. Duringthe Vertical Line Cross Phasea significant relationship was found between angle atthe ankle and the hipangle. InKicking and Pulling Phase angle at the left hip joint and the performance of Uprisehas shown a significant relationship.During the Supporting phase angle at the neck and the performance of Uprisewas showing a significant relationship, and also the angle of the left Wrist correlated significantly with the angle of the Hip. Results also reveal that none of the linear kinematic variables at different Phases of Uprise showed any significant relationship at 0.05 level
