Abstract: Over a long period of time, there were debates about the purpose of the teaching of school physical edu-cation between the “view of skills” and the “view of constitution”. On the basis of profoundly dissecting the two views, Dr. ZHANG Hong-tan had formed such a unique ideology as the “view of fitness made from technology” by referring to the “complementary principle”. The “view of constitution” focuses on the purpose, while the “view of skills” focuses on the mean; these two views are not two mutually opposite issues at the same level; therefore, it is not appropriate for the “view of fitness made from technology” to set both “strengthening physical stamina” and “teaching skills” as the purpose of the teaching of school physical education, which also raises the issue about the appropriateness of the introduction of the “complementary principle”. However, at the present stage the “view of fitness made from technology” can still be considered as the primary view of theories on the teaching of school physical education; its ideology of achieving the goal of fitness enhancement via the learning of sports technology can be considered as having important enlightening significance and realistic value.
Key words: school physical education；strengthening physical stamina；teaching skills；view of fitness made from technology
