Pass the Ring
2 Colored Rings
1 per Line
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.
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.
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.
Watch where you hit.
Continue until each student has 2 turns.
