Skill: Momentum
Drill: A/B Challenge
Equipment needed: 1 clapper pad per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: Students will practice having good MOMENTUM by demonstrating their ability to do multiple jump front kicks while having to remember the order of the leg that kicks.
Teaching SKILLZ:
UP THE REP – On the first combination, the instructor can have the students use sloppy technique. As they continue doing more combinations, they can do them with a little better technique every time. On the last combination, the student should have the best technique that they can.
WORKING MEMORY – The student must remember the order that they are given, and perform the correct kicks without messing up the order. This works on their ability to hold onto information while performing a task.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Have the students sitting with the instructor.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The 1st student in each line will stand up and face the instructor.
  • The instructor will designate one leg as A and one as B.
  • They will then call out a 3-5 move combo mixing the letters, the student must then do a jump front kick with the legs that were called.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Bend your knees so you can move quick
  • Snap your knees on your kicks.
  • Keep your hands up so you look good.
Step 5
  • Continue until each person has 2-3 turns.
