Abstract: Kinesthesia can be briefly defined as the "muscle sense". However, this does not reveal the many and varied aspects encompassed by this sense sometimes labelled the "sixth sense". Wiebe (72) says that the functions of kinesthesia -- co-ordination, skill development, posture, body control, balance, and pressure discrimination--are all important in teaching physical education (72, p. 222).
