Action recognition has become a very important topic in computer vision, with many fundamental applications, in robotics, video surveillance, human computer interaction, and multimedia retrieval among others and a large variety of approaches have been described. The purpose of this survey is to give an overview and categorization of the approaches used. We concentrate on approaches that aim on classification of full-body motions, such as kicking, punching, waving, etc. and we categorize them
