Drill: Pass the Ring
Equipment needed: 2 Colored Rings
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will learn to punch straight by punching through progressively smaller spaces which will also start to improve spatial awareness and hand-eye coordination.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student hits the rims of the rings, they will have three jumping jacks.
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to punch through the rings as it gets smaller, without hitting the rims of the rings.
Step 1
Divide your students into groups.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each line you will need an Instructor with two colored rings.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • You are going to hold the rings so that they overlap with a large gap in the middle.
  • The student must do 3 alternating punches through the middle space.
  • Then, we will make the space half the original size, and they must do three more punches.
  • Repeat this process until the space is really small.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Keep your hands up.
  • Punch straight.
  • Watch where you hit.
Step 5
  • Continue until each student has 2 turns.
