Abstract

In this paper, I establish three points: context, which particularly refers to competitive sport in the fabric of Latin America and against the backdrop of globalization. This allows us to track the footprints of global – local tension. Particularities, the point where local characterizations of motor expressions are brought to the fore. This is illustrated by the example of Colombia from the emergence of new content in ludic – sporting activities, which begin to reconfigure and bring new significance to the structure of motor expression. Finally, comes the point called here ideality, in which, taking on board all the complexity inherent to reflexive modernity, I outline what I have called didactic principles which lead toward a pedagogy of the body: corporeity, uniqueness, motor-genesis, otherness, ethno-motor functions, contextuality, historicity, play and interaction, amongst others.

Keywords: Didactic Principles, Globalization, Localization, Ludic-Sporting Activities, Motor Expression, Motor Functions, Physical Education, Social Project, Sport.
