Skill: Versatility
Drill: Form in a Box
Equipment needed: None
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: In this drill the students will build their versatility with adaptability in their forms. They will perform their form within a confined space.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student steps out of the box, they have to start over. If the student is able to make it through their turn without stepping outside of the box, the instructor will have five pushups.
DIVIDED ATTENTION – The student must be able to focus on doing their form, and making sure they are keeping inside of their box. This works on their ability to focus on multiple things at one time.
Step 1
Explain what versatility with adaptability means as it is applied to their form:
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Divide your class into groups based on their form. For each group lay out four cones or markers to provide a 2 ½’ x 2 ½’ space as shown in the picture.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The instructor will bow you in and say “begin” as you perform your form within the box.
  • You must perform the form within the space that you were provide which means that you will have to adapt your form to move backwards instead of forwards.
  • If the instructor feels like you stepped out of the box, or you miss a move in the form that could’ve been adapted within the box, then you must start over.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • The goal is to finish the form within three attempts while applying versatility with adaptability.
