Introduces students to the theoretical and practical study of human movement. Students will become knowledgeable in the basic sports science principles underpinning human movement while at the same time developing their own body-management skills (moving efficiently and safely). Through the medium of gymnastics, students will be introduced to the six mechanically-related Movement Patterns from which most human movement evolves: The Body in Stillness (Statics), The Body in Explosive Movement (Spring or Take-off), The Body in Repetitive Movement (Locomotion), The Body in Absorbing Movement (Landing), The Body in Rotation and The Body in Swing. Students will be assessed on both theoretical and practical content.

Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): KIN 121 or 122 or 146.
Note: Students may not receive credit for both KIN 150 and KINA 213.
