Abstract: While the course opening rate of college sports fitness curriculum in China is not so ideal, it is also diffi-cult for the teaching contents of the courses opened to meet the needs of as many fitness course taking students as possible, therefore, sitting Taijiquan has a good chance to enter into college sports fitness curriculum. The opening of a course in sitting Taijiquan as an emerging sport in college sports fitness curriculum has more extensive applica-tions, and the significance to ensuring the physical and mental development of fitness course taking students as well as carrying on and forward traditional Chinese culture. Such characteristics of sitting Taijiquan as easy to learn and low requirements for time and space, as well as rich theoretical connotations of Taijiquan itself and universities’ ex-isting advantages such as Taijiquan teachers etc, have determined that the opening of a course in sitting Taijiquan in college sports fitness curriculum is extremely feasible. In order to promote the opening and popularizing of sitting Taijiquan in college sports fitness curriculum, we should henceforward strengthen sitting Taijiquan textbook system construction, teacher training and scientific research, and focus on “mental exercise” teaching.
