Description: The purpose of this drill is to return the black belt to the instructor as fast as possible. Explain to the students that you want them to run as quickly as possible to make their heart stronger! This drill is super fun because the students get to play with you.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – The instructor can make the game harder on the second round by saying that if a student drops the belt, then they have three jumping jacks before they can continue running.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The students must run down to the cone and back while holding their instructor’s belt. This works on their ability to complete a task quickly and accurately, as they want to run as quickly as they can in order to get a point for their team.
