Self-Efficacy suggested by Bandura1） is self confidence that it is necessary to achieve of individual goal. Self-efficacy is said other variable than the objective skills. People go down clearly their motor skills by getting old. We researched whether perceived physical self-efficacy is effected of getting old.【Method】We researched with perceived physical self-efficacy scale designed by Ryckman2） for each twenty from the twenties to the eighties, a total of 280 subjects who agreed with this research. We analyzed into age distinctions by Kruskal-Wallis examination.【Results】There is no significant differences beside forties-seventies and forties-eighties on the men.【Discussion】Perceived physical
self-efficacy is the variable independence of the age. We consider that this result at the age distinctions
followed the concept of self-efficacy. The age don’t necessarily go down perceived physical selfefficacy.
This helps with understanding both the promotions and the risks that it is necessary for the old person to act.
