Abstract: The authors analyzed school physical education development in China from the perspective of current situation. In terms of vertical current situation, school physical education in China is divided into early and recent school physical education in China based on 1949 as the watershed. At the early stage (before 1949) and after the reform and opening up, school physical education in China was profoundly influenced by Japanese, European and American education ideologies; after 1949 and before the reform and opening up, school physical education in China was influenced by Russian school physical education ideology. While from the horizontal perspective, school physical education in China was influenced by other disciplines inveterately, and its internal structure was differen-tiating constantly. In recent 10 years, school physical education in China showed the following diversity: 1) boosting the revision of makings education and the “new curriculum standard”; 3) issuing “No. 7 document of CCCPC” and developing the Sunshine Sports movement aiming at teenager fitness problems; 3) developing Olympic education based on the hosting of Beijing Olympic Games; 4) campus football eventually became something really useful.
