  • Today we are going to work on DISCIPLINE.
  • DISCIPLINE means to make good choices in everything that you do.

Here are three discipline tips that you will learn today:

1. Following directions – your parents and teachers should only have to tell you once to do something. 2. Self-discipline – if you make proper choices, then you have self-discipline. 3. Being still – it’s hard to sit still so if you can sit still then you have good DISCIPLINE.

Listening Position Dash:

Students will practice having good DISCIPLINE by demonstrating their ability to listen to a position that is called out by the instructor then they will have to quickly and demonstrate the position without moving or being silly.
  • Teaching SKILLZ: CHOICES – After round 1 get each student in turn to choose their favorite position number to race against their classmates with.
  • Brain SKILLZ: SPEED OF PROCESSING – The students will exercise their speed of processing by being the fastest to remember and show the correct position.

Beat the Instructor:

The students will develop their discipline skills by performing a Martial Arts move faster than the instructor, but they will begin on their backs. This is great for building Martial Arts technique, following directions, and listening skills.
  • Teaching SKILLZ: EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student can be the instructor, then the instructor will do 10 push-ups.
  • Brain SKILLZ: SPEED OF PROCESSING – The student has to process the name of the move quickly in order to beat the instructor.
