Teaching SKILLZ:
INTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student wants to make their instructors proud, they can punch as hard as they can. If they want to make their instructors and their parents proud, they can punch as hard as they can and keep their hands up the whole time.
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The student must be able to hear the audio cues “fast” and “slow”, and do their punches accordingly, as the instructor will call them out at random.
