The nuances that the term Kinesiology has generated in disciplinary development have upheld a significant number of professional actions, ranging from physical education to laboratory research, kinetics, sport kinematics and ventilator function. Such actions have ultimately assisted in the extreme dysfunction and immobility concomitant at the end of a vast majority of diseases. Therefore, Kinesiology has been the argumentative support for teachers, coaches, scientists and therapists working with human movement. Humanities and so- cial sciences that commence with anthropology and are consolidated in the bio politics of global union organizations to establish control guidelines are also an important contribution to its study. Given the vast amount of knowledge in this field, there is an opportunity to generate favorable conditions that reflect on further solutions inspired by the transcendence of functionality and movement. When reflecting on these achievements, the common denominator is when functionality becomes the epistemological goal ofthe paradigms at the service of human movement. In this context, the objective of this research was to analyze the term Kinesiology in the context of disciplinary nuances to recompose its implications and to determine if it can survive as a discipline.

KEY WORDS: Kinesiology; Professional practice; Disciplina.
