Skill: Technique
Drill: How Many Can You Name?
Equipment needed: None
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: Students will work on their TECHNIQUE by getting them to do as many moves as they can think of in 15 seconds with proper detail. This will challenge students intellectual stages of development through trying to remember as many techniques as they can while also remembering the details that go with them.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – On the second round, the instructor can say “who is going to get a higher score than last time?” in order to motivate the students to do better than they did previously.
LONG TERM MEMORY – The students must be able to name as many techniques as they can in 15 seconds. This works on their ability to remember information, and then recall and apply that information to a task.
Step 1
Spread your students into even lines on one side of the mat.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have instructor ready to count the techniques
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The first student will stand up and when the instructor says “go” will have 15 seconds to do as many techniques as possible while also saying the names of those techniques.
  • After the 15 seconds is up the student that was able to do the most techniques counted by their instructor will get a point for their team.
  • The team with the most points at the end would be the winners.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Move fast! You want to use as many techniques as possible.
  • Be loud when naming your moves. Show your instructor that you are confident in what you are doing.
  • Pay attention to detail. If you have sloppy technique then your moves won’t count.
Step 5
  • Continue for 2-3 rounds.
