Fundamental movement skills (FMS) of elementary school age children in physical learning at school are still limited. Physical education learning programs in Indonesia generally still emphasize learning sports branching, where elementary school children have been given basic sports branching techniques, as a result the child's locomotor, non-locomotor and manipulative movement abilities do not develop optimally. There are several factors that can develop basic movement skills, one of which is the physical activity program. Basic movement skills (FMS) obtained through physical activity in physical education learning are not only useful and aim to master certain sports, but these movement skills are useful for carrying out physical activities and tasks in everyday life. This scientific work aims to determine how the effectiveness and emphasis of the concept of physical activity on the fundamental movement skills of elementary school students. The method used in this scientific paper is to use the method of systematic literature reviews. The results of this review provide insight into the relationship between FMS competence and physical activity. Based on the analysis of the article, it is interpreted thoroughly that the magnitude of the relationship between FMS competence and physical activity in the conceptual model, as well as the relationship between FMS and low physical activity in early childhood, moderate in middle to late childhood, and strong in adolescence
