Abstract: Physical education deals directly with human movement. Human movement ranges from barely perceivable gestures to easily observable activity. One of the concerns of physical educators is efficient human movement. Physical educators help individuals work towards efficient human movement patterns. In their concern about the human movement phenomena, an individual's motoric behavior is viewed as the essence of being. Some of the current writings (Gerber, 1972; Harper, 1969; Coutts, 1968; Slusher, 1967) concerned with the phenomenon of human movement deal mostly with play, game, sport, and athletics, and involve subjective analyses of these modes of behavior. The analyses written from the authors' experiences allow the readers to draw their own meaning. Because each reader is individually editing the readings, it is important that the concepts presented be lucid and the frame of reference be established by the author. In this study, "The I of Movement", the movement concept the author will be speaking about refers to human movement forms which are of individual volition. These movement patterns are beyond the necessary movement patterns for sustenance of life, such as breathing, swallowing or eye blinking.
