The article reviews the peculiarities of dynamics of testing indicators reflecting the initial physical preparation of future statutory officials. The results of the physical skills testing of students who started their studies of Combat Self-Defense and Combat Wrestling studies in 2014-2018 are analyzed. The article uses the results of randomly selected students' control exercises. They characterize students' speed endurance (100 m running); peculiarities of general aerobic capacity (2000m and 3000 m running), explosive strength (the standing long jump), abdominal press and arm muscle strength changes in retrospective. Based on the initial data on students' physical fitness testing, the tendencies of changes are defined. The statistically significant differences in the physical characteristics of the groups of students tested in different years are determined.
