  • Today we are going to work on KICKING.
  • Who can tell me what KICKING means?
  • We are going to play the following KICKING drills:Frog Kicks & Castle Crashers.
  • Here are the three KICKING tips that I want everyone to practice today:
  1. Keep your hands up.
  2. Bend your knee before and after you kick.
  3. Watch where you are kicking.


Skill-building drills – 7-minutes

    1. Follow My Lead: Students will practice having good KICKING by demonstrating their ability to watch the instructor and try and remember the pattern that was shown to them.
      • Teaching SKILLZ: HEALTHY COMPETITION – Make it a competition to see who can do 5 combinations in a row correctly.
      • Brain SKILLZ: SPEED OF PROCESSING – The student will quickly process the combinations and perform them correctly.


    1. Don’t Drop the Cone: In this drill the students will learn how to develop balance while kicking by balancing a cone on their head as they kick the target. This is a great way to teach them how to keep their head up while kicking.
      • Teaching SKILLZ: EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student doesn’t drop the cone, then the instructor will do 3 push-ups.
      • Brain SKILLZ: DIVIDED ATTENTION – The student will focus on kicking while also not dropping the cone.
