Abstract: The physical education thought is an important part of the ideological system of school physical education in China, and its research results can promote the theoretical research of school physical education, discipline development and curriculum reform. Using the research methods of literature, text analysis and logical speculation, this paper systematically combs the historical context and changing characteristics of the thought of physical education, and further speculates and responds to the relevant questions on the basis of grasping its core value. The research shows that: (1) The development of the thought of physical education has experienced a thinking transformation from "concept reflection" to "discourse reconstruction" and then to "discipline creation". This thought is due to the reflection of sportsmen on the ontological value of physical education. Its essential pursuit is to separate the concept of sports and competition and explore the true meaning of sports. This thought has contributed to the great discussion of the concept of sports in the academic circles, but it has also been controversial and questioned in the process of dissemination. (2) From the perspective of development characteristics, the thought of physical education always takes paying attention to the national physical problems as the development motivation, and presents the ideological evolution mechanism of "query optimization". (3) The practical problems of the thought of physical education are mainly reflected in the single goal dimension and the limitation of teaching practice. It is believed that its root lies in the failure to deeply understand the single essence logical position of the thought and the practical appeal to improve students' physique.
