Skill: FOCUS
Drill: Face to Face
Equipment needed: None
Instructors needed: 1 Per Line
Description: Students will practice FOCUS by demonstrating their ability to focus by being able to demonstrate moves with the appropriate side while they are facing a partner who is going with them.
If the student is able to do the drill and makes one mistake, they will have really good focus. If the student can do the drill without making any mistakes, they will have ninja focus and they will make their parents proud.
The student must be able to do their left and right techniques called out by the instructor, while not getting distracted or tricked by their partner across from them, as they are doing the same thing, but their left and rights are swapped.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
The instructor will hold the small pads to the side of the students.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The 1st student in each line will stand up and face their opponent.
  • When the instructor calls out a move with the left or right hand the student must do it.
  • But they don’t want to be thrown off by their partner who is facing them.
They will do 3 different moves.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Have your eyes open so you can see.
  • Be loud as you say the moves.
  • Be fast to show you have good focus.
Step 5
  • Continue until each person has 2-3 turns.
