Skill: Precision
Drill: On Your Feet
Equipment needed: Two re-breakable boards
Instructors needed: Two
Description: The students will test their precision by jumping to their feet and breaking the board before their opponent.
Teaching SKILLZ:
TRICKERY – The instructor can say things like “ghost” and “gogurt” in order to try and trick the students. This will enhance their auditory processing skills as they have to listen for the whole word, and not just the sounds in the word.
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The student must listen for the instructor to say “go”, and stand up as fast as they can to break the board. This works on their ability to follow verbal commands quickly and accurately.
Step 1
Divide the class into two lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each line you will need an instructor to hold a board.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • When I say “go” you will jump to your feet and break the board.
  • If you break the board faster than your opponent, then you win a point for your team.
  • The first team to 10 points is the winner.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Must work prcision and speed on their break.
Step 5
  • You can add variety by changing the technique. For example: front kick, round kick, side kick, axe kick, palm strike, elbow strike, hammer fist, etc.
