My current research is focusing on the developmental aspects of motor behavior that involving physical neuromuscular growth and motor development in children. Active and healthy lifestyle in adult is a long-term outcome from the proper development of motor competency, physical activity, heath related physical fitness and self-efficacy during early childhood. Lack of proper motor competency development in children will portray broad features ranging from poor motor skills, clumsiness, low level of physical activity, low level of physical fitness and overweight to inactive physical lifestyle. My current research is to establish the standard tool to diagnose, monitor, intervene the quantitative level of muscular growth, motor competency, heath related fitness, self-efficacy in children, their correlates and their interaction that intertwining into adulthood. The future research should focus on the early childhood intervention to promote active adult lifestyle.
