Drill: Drop Punches
Equipment needed: One long block, one ring
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will work on their PUNCHING in this drill by dropping on their stomach showing good punches while also developing back strength.
Teaching SKILLZ:
TRICKERY – The instructor can trick the students by saying words that sound similar to “drop” like “droop” or “drip”. The instructor can also trick them by saying the word “go”, as the students are only supposed to drop when the instructor says “drop”.
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The student must be able to listen for the word “drop”, and not words that sound similar; They should not listen for the word “go” either.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
You will need one ring attached to the block through which the students will punch.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The student will start by standing tall.
  • When the instructor says”drop”, the students will drop down and lay on their stomach.
  • While on their stomach they will lift their head &do 2 punches through the ring.

  • Keep your hand tight for each punch.
