Skill: Versatility
Drill: Say the Move
Equipment needed: None
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will test their versatility by performing their form while saying the name of each move.
Teaching SKILLZ:
INTRINSIC MOTIVATION – The instructor can tell the students to remember the amount of mistakes they made on the first round, and then on the second round, the instructor can motivate the students to get less mistakes than they got on the first round.
LONG TERM MEMORY – The student must be able to recall information that they learned in the past, by doing their form and remembering the name of the moves in their form as well. This works on their episodic and semantic long-term memory, as they have to remember how to do their moves (episodic), and what the names of the moves are as well (semantic).
