Skill: Momentum
Drill: 30 Second Challenge
Equipment needed: One kicking target per line and a stopwatch
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will test their ability to gain speed in their momentum by kicking non-stop for 30-seconds.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – The instructor can make it into a competition, and tell the students to count how many kicks they do. The instructor can then ask the students how many kicks they did, and the student that did the most gets a point for their team. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
ATTENTION CONTROL – The students must kick the pad for thirty seconds without putting their leg down. This works on their ability to focus on doing one thing for an extended period of time, as they have to keep their leg up and kick the pad for the whole duration.
Step 1
Divide the class into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each line you will need an instructor to hold a kicking target.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • You will kick the pad non-stop for 30-seconds.
  • As you kick the pad with each kick, make sure you remain in the same starting point.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Your goal is to keep a non-stop momentum with your kick for the entire 30-seconds.
Step 5
  • Continue until each student has at least two turns with both legs.
