Low levels of physical education learning can be concluded by the presence of complaints from sports society that indicates that the quality of early sports seedlings from schools are so very low. These complaints is caused by the laxity of sportsman candidates in motoric capabilities from speed, agility, coordination, equilibrium, and spatial awareness and general resistance, strength, and flexibility.
