The purpose of this study was to investigate the difference between two pedagogical methods in teaching/learning hurdle clearance such as the traditional learning method which was based on verbal feedback and the new technology through motion analysis and video modeling which was based on self-modeling, expert modeling and model’s superposition. Twenty-seven sports science students took part in this study. Modeling group composed of 15 students and traditional group of 12 students. Both groups participated in a 10-week hurdle clearance learning (two sessions per week) which was composed of 10 sets (5 hurdles clearance per set) in total 1000 repetitions. The findings indicated a better enhancement of the learning score in the modeling group compared to the traditional one (14.26 ± 2.05 pts vs. 11.66 ± 1.72 pts, respectively with p < 0.01). In addition, the analysis of delta-percentage revealed a high increase of technical performance in the modeling group. In conclusion, video feedback with model’s superposition led to a better improvement of learning in hurdle clearance more than verbal feedback.
