The aim of this research was to evaluate two kinds of SAQ training for elementary school children on physical fitness and cognitive function. One hundred and twenty children were allocated equally to three groups: a control group (C), the SAQ of hand (SAQ-H), and the SAQ of leg (SAQ-L) groups. All participants were measured Trail Making Test A and B (TMT A & B), run 20-meter dash, Shuttle and Zig-Zag Run, Zig-Zag Run, a reaction time of hand and leg, and coordination. The C and SAQ-H groups had a significant difference in hand reaction time and coordination. The C and SAQ-L groups had a significant difference in coordination. There was no significant difference between groups for TMT A&B, run 20-meter dash, Shuttle and Zig-Zag Run, and Zig-Zag Run. The C group had increased significantly in some dependent variables after training. The SAQ-H and the SAQ-L groups had significantly increased in almost dependent variables after training. In conclusion, there was no important distinction between SAQ-H and SAQ-L in the enhanced physical fitness and cognitive function of elementary school students. However, the SAQ-H and SAQ-L could improve primary school students ' physical fitness and cognitive function.
