Skill: Versatility
Drill: 1 – 5 – 10
Equipment needed: None
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will test their versatility with changeability by performing their form while the instructors have them switch up their intensity level throughout the form.
Teaching SKILLZ:
UP THE REP – On the second round, the instructor can tell the students to have their worst technique on their moves at level one intensity, okay technique at level five, and their best technique at level ten. This will motivate the students to play the game and be silly on the first level, and then work up to their best technique on the last level.
WORKING MEMORY – The student must be able to do their form, while remembering the level of intensity they are on and remember to show that level of intensity until the instructor calls out another number. This works on their ability to remember information while performing a task.
Step 1
Divide the class into groups.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have the first person from each group stand in the middle of the forms ring.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • When I say “go” you will begin your form at a level 1 on a scale of 1 to 10.
  • As I call out the following numbers, you will adjust your form to the proper intensity level:
  • 1 = soft
  • 5 = medium
  • 10 = strong
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • The idea is to be able to show three obvious intensity levels in your form.
  • Continue until each student has at least two turns.
Step 5
  • To make it fun, have the students and instructors switch roles.
