Abstract:In order to emphasize the integration of the body and mind, and to strengthen the relation between sport and health, Japan has changed the “Gymnastics” provision in previous Learning Instructions into “Physical Consti-tution Enhancing Exercises”, and added a new item, namely, “Body Relaxing Exercise”, into it. The body relaxing exercise mainly focuses on enhancing student’s perception, cultivating student’s self-adjustment ability, so as to es-tablish a friendly relationship between the students. The body relaxing exercise requires the teachers to exert their creative spirit, change exercising manner and method, and strive to relax the body and mind of the students.
