Today, there are numerous methods of quantitative analysis of the human movement. Basic quality of these methods is the high degree of accuracy and reliability of the obtained data. According to systematic approach human movement is qualified as a complex system that is, as such, subject to the principle of incompatibility (Zadeh, 1973) - i.e. making precise assertions is in reciprocity with their significance for the system. In this paper the outline of a method for qualitative analysis of human movement in the case of ergometer rowing have been proposed. Qualification process of kinematic parameters is done on the basis of previously collected quantitative data and with possession of prior contextual knowledge for their qualification by rowing experts. Possible applications of the proposed method, as well as guidelines for method improvement are briefly discussed.
