Skill: CRAWLING
Drill: 1-2-3 Army Freeze
Equipment needed: None
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will play a game of 1-2-3 ninja freeze, but with army crawls. Army crawls are good for building arm muscles, and also for spatial awareness.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – See which student can be the most ninja by freezing and crawling the fastest.
Brain SKILLZ:
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The student must be able to listen for when the instructor says “army freeze” and stop moving as quickly as they can.
Step 1
Have your student’s line up on one end of the mat on their stomach.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
The instructor will line up on the opposite end of the mat.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • I will close my eyes and count to three. While I count, you will begin to crawl towards me.
  • When I get to three I will say “army freeze” and you must freeze where you are.
  • If I see you move then you have to begin at the starting line.
  • We will keep going until someone tags me.
  • The person that tags me is the winner.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Continue for three rounds.
Step 5
  • You can make it fun by letting the winner be the counter.
