In the view  of aesthetics experience,people gradually get rid of the traditional aesthetics depending on the work of art itself to construct the aesthetic theory of the building,begin to pay attention to aesthetic feeling beyond art,and the important role of the“body" in the aesthetics. However,the origin of theory of aesthetic experience can trace back to Dewey’s  pragmatism philosophy and  aesthetics,Dewey’s  pragmatism  aesthetics  is  a  subversion  and transcendence of the traditional aesthetics theory in Europe and America. He applies his empiricism philosophy into the field of aesthetics,rebuilds the important role of aesthetic experience,and rebuilds a new aesthetic theory.

And according to sports’characteristics and attribute of disciplines,open up a new path of studying aesthetics of sport,achieve the transformation from ontology to epistemology in the research of sports aesthetics,so as to enrich and perfect theoretical system of aesthetics of sports.
