Skill: Momentum
Drill: Cone Pop
Equipment needed: 1 wavemaster/1 small cone per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will practice MOMENTUM by demonstrating their ability to have hard fast round kicks. This will challenge the students physically by requiring them to kick fast but also maintain good technique so they can throw another kick.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – If the students are able to do one kick and make the cone pop off the pad, the instructor can see how many kicks the students can do before the cone hits the ground. The instructor can take note of the highest amount of kicks and set that as a record for the school to keep, so the next time the students play this game, they have a chance to beat the record.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The students must be able to do their kick with proper technique, and have enough power to where the cone pops off the pad. This works on their ability to complete a task quickly and accurately, since if they are not fast enough or do not have proper technique, the cone might not pop off the pad.
Step 1
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Divide your students into lines.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • Have a small cone on the top of each wavemaster.
  • The 1st student will face the bag and demonstrate a round kick.
  • If they kick the bag hard enough the cone should pop off the top of the bag.
  • On round 2 try to see if the students can throw a second round kick trying to hit the falling cone before it hits the floor.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Kick hard so the cone will pop.
  • Don’t forget to pivot to get more power.
  • Kick fast so you can hit the pad and the cone.
Step 5
  • Continue until each student has 2 turns.
