1. Back and Forth: In this drill the students are going to practice their kicks back and forth while learning how to take turns quickly.

  • Teaching SKILLZ: EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – Challenge the students not to make a mistake so they don’t have to start over again with their partner.
  • Brain SKILLZ: DIVIDED ATTENTION – The students will multi-task by counting and kicking at the same time while alternating with their partner.

  • Teaching SKILLZ: CHOICES – The student gets to choose which moves to call out for their instructor, therefore building more confidence in their social skills.
  • Brain SKILLZ: LONG-TERM MEMORY – The student will have to recall martial arts moves for their instructor to perform, therefore building their memory of those movements.
