The purpose of this research is to consider a phenomenological theory of human movement as a new field, in terms of the education of human body. This theory aims at the education of human body itself. In order to consider the matter of movement practice, it is indispensable to treat a subjectivity of movement and his or her intention of movement relating to the human body. Moreover, thinking in movement has to be considered. The thinking is equipped with logic that is different from linguistic thinking. It is so called human bodily thinking. The purpose of this thinking is not to explain movement but to realize movement practice. The thinking has not considered in the general movement theory until now. For considering these matters, it is needed to use not by the scientific method but by the phenomenological method as an original one of physical education. <br>This new phenomenological theory of human movement will present the following two originalities. The first is a unique phenomenological method in the study of physical education. This theory is not for explanation of movement practice, but for practice and acquisition by movement subject. Hence, we have to adopt the phenomenological method that treats intention of movement subject, the human body and human-bodily thinking. The second is the humanbodily thinking which indispensable to movement practice. It is because of necessity to treat not by linguistic thinking but by the human-bodily thinking in order to realize the acquisition of movement. New phenomenological theory of human movement considers movement practice from a viewpoint of the movement subject, and understands the intention of subject from the relation to the human body. Furthermore, it is important for this theory to be presented in a simple and clear form being useful for movement practice in physical education. <br>At first this paper considers the precedent research in connection with the concept for phenomenological theory of movement. Next, it is argued why the phenomenological method is required. In this case, the originality of human movement is described, and then it reflects upon the relationship between the intention and human body. At the same time, the education of human-bodily thinking and human body itself is also discussed. Furthermore, a new method is considered, which is indispensable to the theory of human movement. At last, some perspectives of the new phenomenological theory of human movement are presented.
