Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v88 n5 p26-32 2017
Physical education programs should provide a wide range of physical activities. However, several limitations, such as insufficient space and equipment, make it challenging to incorporate variety into the curriculum. Jegi-chagi, a traditional Korean physical activity, has been proven to be a cost-effective, safe and healthy activity for students. Jegi-chagi has simple rules and is easy to teach in school. Additionally, interesting jegi-chagi games such as archery target, modified foot volleyball, and the sport jegi-chagi can be used to increase basic motor skills, balance and muscular strength in physical education. This article provides an introduction to jegi-chagi and its application in physical education.
