Skill: Vision
Drill: Pad-Fly Challenge
Equipment needed: One small pad per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will play a fun vision game by getting the first shot to answer the quiz question if they kick the pad the furthest.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – The instructor can allow the winning team to be safe from the exercise that one of the instructors picks, with the exercise being around 5-10 reps.
VISUAL PROCESSING – In order to answer the question, the students must hit the pad farther than the other teams. This works on their ability to make sense of what they see, since if they do not hit the middle of the pad with their kick, the pad will not be able to go far.
Step 1
Divide you students into teams and have them line up on one end of the mat.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each team you will need an instructor to hold a small square target.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • I will quiz you on the vision words and their meaning.
  • To get the first shot to answer the question, you must kick the target further than your opponents.
  • If you answer correctly then you get a point for your team.
  • If you answer incorrectly then your opponent gets a chance to answer the question.
  • The team with the most points at the end of the drill is the winner.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • You can make it fun by making the kick something hard, such as jump-spin-hook kick.
  • *If you do not have vision words for each belt, then you can quiz them on various character lessons.
Step 5
  • Continue for at least three rounds.
