Dragon dance and lion dance is a special traditional sports activity with a long history of the Chinese nation. It appears in front of the world as a formal sports event, whether it is to spread the state of the country's physical fitness, or to improve the level of sports competitions, it has important significance in teaching and teaching effects, research and national culture. China’s revitalization and diplomacy has achieved unprecedented growth. This article aims to study the effects of dragon and lion dances on skeletal muscle and serum free amino acid content. In this paper, a fluorescence spectroscopy method for amino acid quantification is established and compared with other experimental methods to provide a reference for the determination of other amino acids. The three amino acids were successfully analyzed by fluorescence spectroscopy, and the reaction mechanism was briefly discussed. The experimental results in this article show that, under normal circumstances, the dragon dance and lion dance exercise damage will reduce the content of skeletal muscle by about 5%, but it will promote the content of serum free amino acids, which will increase it by more than 10%.
