Foucault και Karate-Do : Μια αφηγηματική διερεύνηση των ψυχοπαιδαγωγικών διαστάσεων της εξάσκησης παιδιών προσχολικής και πρώτης σχολικής ηλικίας μέσα από τις αντιλήψεις των δασκάλων τους

The following dissertation revolves around the practice of Karate-do by pre school and early years schoolchildren in an effort to investigate the psycho-pedagogic dimensions of physical exercise. However, due to the lack of relevant bibliography or any scientific reference, this research attempts to shed light to the aforementioned investigation by means of the theoretical and methodological tools employed to describe the nature and function of physical exercise involved in Karate-do. Additionally, drawing from Foucault‟s social theory and perspective as well as from the narrative and methodology of thematic analysis, this research aims to adequately outline children‟s involvement with Karate-do through the description of their instructors‟ beliefs. Through qualitative analysis of the instructors‟ beliefs, this study implies the existence of such aspects to practicing Karate-do, which allow for the identification of Karate-do as a kind of self transforming practice involved in the psycho-somatic development of the practitioners. Based on this implication, the study seeks to investigate the potential validity of such a parallelism, through the exploration of the various aspects in children‟s psycho-somatic development. Suggesting the possibility of a correlation between Karate-do and the development of the Self, as explained above, is in alliance with Foucault‟s theoretical perspective and methodology. This suggestion can consequently claim to serve as an alternative approach to understanding and further exploring issues of general pedagogical nature. Additionally, it can contribute to encouraging children to practice Karate-do, by informing or generating feedback to the question of whether or not -and to what extent- Karate-do can play a role in the psycho-pedagogic development of children.
