Teaching SKILLZ:
Teaching SKILLZ: EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student is able to get up off of their feet before time runs out, then the instructor will have five pushups.
Brain SKILLZ: VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to keep track of their instructor and kick the pad consistently. This works on their ability to track a moving target and participate in visual activities, since they have to keep an eye on the instructor and see where the pad is and kick it.
Step 1
Divide your students into groups.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each group you will need an instructor to hold a large kicking target and an assistant to manage a stop watch.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • When time begins, I will charge you with a kicking pad while you lay on the ground.
  • You must continuously kick the target while I charge you.
  • Your goal is to kick me off and stand up on your feet within 30 seconds.
  • If you make it to your feet in 30 seconds then I will do 10 push-ups.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Learn the courage to hit an attacker
