Excerpt from The Special Kinesiology of Educational Gymnastics

Since the second edition of The Swedish System of Educational Gymnastics became exhausted, and a third edition was rendered necessary, I have used the opportunity to rewrite and elaborate the book so as to make it more suitable as a text-book for students of gymnastics.

While I have deemed it desirable to change the title into Special Kinesiology, - it being a treatise on the mechanics, effects, and classification of special exercises, - the subject-matter still describes the Swedish system of educational gymnastics. I consider the change warranted, partly because of the vaster scope of the book, partly because gymnastics is fast passing into the stage where prefixes of nationality must disappear, and where the broadness of its spirit must leave its imprint even on the name. This, however, does not oppose the fact that Swedish gymnastics must be the basis of all rational gymnastics, since, to-day, it is the only system whose details have been elucidated by and derived from mechanics, anatomy, physiology, and psychology, and whose theory has survived the scrutiny of scientists all over the world; so that, whatever the name or form of the gymnastics of the future, the Swedish system will be its frame, as, even now, we see it transforming and absorbing all so-called systems.
