Relationship between physical education and athletics
Physical education in its history must be viewed from the role that it played. From the earliest civilization of man who hunted and things of this nature, man had to be physical is many areas of life. I think that the natural humanistic view of this makes it known that it is a natural thing that goes hand in hand with life. So when you bring in athletics I think that it has to be considered to go hand in hand. The earliest athletic events come from people who had the ability to perform a certain sport. Regardless whether the earliest ones started off good at it or not, it certainly developed in the modern sport and athletic world that it is today. I think that you have to consider these to be a single discipline because you cannot have the athletics without the physical education. Especially in a modern culture of what is taught in P.E. classes. When you go to learn physical education you could learn about taking care of your physical body and how to enhance it to perform in everyday life, but you are also taught how to use it in sports. Sports in its entirety effects many peoples everyday lives whether they are spectators or athletes themselves. It all can be traced back for many to those early days in physical education. You could look at it like this, what would physical education look like if sports did not exist but physical education did. I cannot imagine one without the other. Athletics need physical education to be successful because if you are successful in athletics it is because you have been educated on physical education in the proper terms. On the other hand physical education needs athletics. Without athletics physical education would have a very limited scope of attention that is brought to it. The relationship between the two is one in the same. This is also valuable to the places that have been looking to educate in other areas and take away from physical education and that valuable trait that it brings to an individual life.
