WALKING – ANATOMICAL AND FUNCTIONAL ASPECTS AND ITS ROLE WITHIN MILITARY PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND THE MILITARY ENVIRONMENT
Whether we regard walking as an ordinary automatism of the people to whom we do not pay any particular attention, or we look at it from the perspective of specific basic motor skills and the actions and activities of the servicemen, it must be admitted that it is the main form of human locomotion, the main mode of human movement. Beyond the applicative utility of walking, in a deep approach, it must be understood as the central component of movement, a quintessence of the existence of human life on Earth, along with the other elements that support our survival: oxygen, water and food. This material comprises a synthesis of the main information that will help get a deeper understanding of walking and an awareness of its role both for daily life and as a fundamental motor skill needed for the servicemen.
