Lembe Gorgon, Mviri Hubert César, Entsiro François, Ewamela Aristide, Massamba Alphonse


The aim of the study was to identify and analyze the motor behaviors of practitioners of the traditional Congolese Ekienga activity, and to offer teaching content for this activity at primary school level in the context of physical education. The research, observational and didactic, was based on the one hand on the evaluation of the bodily gestures carried out during Ekienga in 34 adult men, and on the other hand the construction of teaching programs. The results obtained showed that Ekienga’s internal logic allows the construction of knowledge and relevant teaching content in physical education at primary school in Congo.
