The International Human Motricity Network (IHMN) is a non-profit educational, technical, scientific and cultural association whose main objectives are to promote the voluntary association of teaching, research or scientific dissemination institutions, as well as people and physical or legal entities interested in education, research and dissemination of science. For this purpose, it carries out bilateral or multilateral cooperation agreements between all involved, in order to promote teaching, research and content qualification for intervention in the promotion of health and performance through human motor skills.

All professionals from different areas of knowledge have the IHMN as their locus of action, since there is no limit to the crossing of information from different types of knowledge that can directly or indirectly achieve the objective of this Network. Thus, one can see the perception that all involved have of the importance of multidisciplinarity in the construction of interdisciplinarity and how much, from basic to intervention research, each of its effective members will be welcomed. This book is a first action of all members of the Network in order to present the main lines of investigation, their themes and research results so that more researchers, institutions and other networks want to join our work, which excels in all its actions for the good of the human being.

Our greatest desire is that reading the information contained herein will be a stimulus for research, a guide to research topics, an understanding of contemporary trends and, fundamentally, a way of attracting new professionals to the world of research and the dissemination of knowledge. To do so, we list our research group leaders with the most recent results in their research topics so that you have in your hands the excellence of our knowledge produced between 2007 and 2020, the time of IHMN’s existence.
