Skill: Punching
Drill: Punch and Sit
Equipment needed: One punching target and ring per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The student will punch the target four times and then sit in the ring. This will help the students build control, gross motor skills, and spatial awareness.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – See which student can sit down the fastest; the instructor can give the lines silly names in order to motivate the students to win as a team.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The student must be able to complete their punches quicky, and sit down as soon as they finish.

For each line you will need a ring on the ground, and instructor holding punching mitts.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • You are going to stand in the ring.
  • When I say “go” you will punch the target four times and then sit in the ring.
  • On the second round, have the students punch while the instructor calls out the left of right hand.
  • On the third round, have the student punch six times as quickly as possible and then sit.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Keep your hands up.
  • Punch fast!
  • Sit Strong.
