Importance of Fundamental Skills

Fundamental movements are necessary for overall good physical activity.  Loco motor, manipulation, and stability skills are most important because they create the foundation for all physical activity.  Loco motor skills include walking, running, leaping, jumping, and hopping.  Manipulation skills include ball-rolling, throwing, kicking, etc.  Stability skills include bending, twisting, and turning.  These are the most basic forms of movement and when put with other fundamental skills, create physical activity.  Without these skills, a child will not be able to live a healthy and active life.
