Abstract: By studying the social characteristics and functional values of the “Money Shot”, a traditional sports event of Tujia nationality in northeast Guizhou, the author put forward the conception to introduce the “Money Shot” of Tujia nationality in northeast Guizhou into the physical education curriculum in institutes of higher voca-tional education. The “Money Shot” has not only historical, national, traditional, fun, entertaining and performing characteristics, but also relatively low requirements for the playground and equipment; it needs little capital invest-ment; it is easy to learn and develop; it is highly flexible and adaptable. Introducing the “Money Shot” into the physical education curriculum in institutes of higher vocational education can expand resources for scholastic physical education teaching, and save investment in teaching facilities, having an important realistic significance in boosting the healthy development of student’s body and mind, the reform and development of scholastic physical education, and the rapid development of the tourism and economy in the national region.
