Skill: Focus
Drill: Missed Me
Equipment needed: Three small square targets
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: One student will punch the pad as the other student dodges the pad.
Teaching SKILLZ:
CHOICES – The instructor can tell the students to all find a partner as quick as they can, so they get to choose who they can work with.
Brain SKILLZ:
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student punching the pads must be able to see their partner and hit the pad in the correct direction in order to hit their partner. The student who is getting hit must track the pad and step out of the way before they get hit. This drill works on their ability to track moving targets and process visual activity.
Step 1
Pair your students up with a partner and divide the pairs into groups.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
You will need an instructor to hold the pads and three small targets for each group.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • One person will stand against the wall and then other will stand approximately 6’ away.
  • The instructor will hold the target as the student punches the target at their partner.
  • The person against the wall must dodge the target.
  • If you get hit, then you have to do five jumping jacks.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Focus on tracking targets to avoid getting hit
Step 5
  • After the student punches all three targets, have them switch roles.
