O'zbekiston Davlat Jismony Tarbiya Va Sport Universiteti Uzbekistan is the only basic higher education institution in Uzbekistan that prepares highly qualified specialist coaches in the field of sports. In 1935, a technical school of physical education was opened in Tashkent due to the need for physical education and the need to train physical education personnel from among local people. However, at that time, highly qualified specialists were trained in cities such as Moscow and Leningrad, and talented young people had to travel to these cities to study. In 1949, the Tashkent State Pedagogical Institute was renamed Nizami, and in 1951 at the Fergana State Pedagogical Institute, a faculty for training physical education teachers with higher education was established. However, the fact that young men and women began to engage in sports and fitness regularly in society increased the need for specialists. In 1955, there were only 247 specialists with higher education in physical education working in higher education institutions, schools, and sports organizations of the Republic. Therefore, the problem of training highly qualified sports coaches, sports referees, physical education and industrial physical education specialists, teachers of educational institutions, sportsmen guides, and scientific staff should be solved immediately. The biggest problem is the lack of local personnel and the slow development of physical education in rural areas. Therefore, the need to increase the movement of physical education, educate a completely new generation of specialists in terms of quality, and ensure the active participation of representatives of local communities in sports competitions became the reason for issuing Decree No. 5972 of the Union Government on August 13, 1955, and Decree No. 653 of the Council of Ministers of RSS Uzbekistan on October 27, the State Institute of Physical Education of Uzbekistan was established.
