Abstract
This research aims to look at the influence of the traditional game 'Engklek' on the ability of the early children's gross motor. The hypothesis of this research is that there is an influence of the game to the children's gross motor ability. The method used in this research is the experimental method through one group pre test and post test design. The subjects of this research totalled 8 children, 3 girls and 5 boy (5-6 year old). The instrument of this research is Behavior Analytical Rating Scale (BARS) motor ability test from Bruininks and Bruininks. The results shows an increase as seen from the acquisition of an average yield of 31.5 at the pretest (low) becomes 58.5 (good) at the posttest. Analysis of the data used in this research is the Wilcoxon test. Wilcoxon test analysis result obtained value of Sig. = 0.011, (p <0.05) that means there is the influence of the traditional game of Engklek on gross motor ability of early children. The traditional game 'Englek' is effective to increasing the gross motor ability of early children. Increasing gross motor abily in this research caused by children's good physical strength since 'Engklek, included gross motor activity such as jumping and throwing. Besides, happiness and social value exist while playing that the kids do not feel when they do kind of burden activities.
