PHISICAL EDCATION IN OTHER EJRPEAN urTIESS
Significant has been the development of physical education in Denmark,
Sweden, Finland, England, race, Italy, Oseehoslovakia, Poland, and Rus-
sia. The other Buropean countries not discussed have dons very little in
physical education except in physical activities for militaristic achieve-
aents; however, other theories and purposes are gradually being accepted
and bein g ade a part of their program
In the last century Ded has occupied an important position in
the field of physical education. The movement gained impetus with the
need of national defense and in 1800 combined with the Danish love for
sports and athletic competition The authorities decided that the prao-
tise of gymnastics should be an essential part of the military training
and in 1804 the Military Gymnastic Institute was founded with Fras Nacht-
egall as its first director. This is the oldest school for physical edtu-
cation in the world.2 Through the efforts of Nachtegall the benefits of
gynastics were extended to the schools and adults were encouraged to par-
ticipate in or outside the military branches of gymnastics. By 1814, the
government had requested all elementary and secondary schools to provide
instruction in gymnastics. In an effort to standardize the work, a man
ual was published at national expense and distributed to all teachers
of physical education.
