Skill: Precision
Drill: Drop Breaks
Equipment needed: 1 Chair & 1 Re-breakable board per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The instructor will be hold board so that it drops with flat side towards the student. As the board drops the student must accurately palm strike the board. Make the height lower and lower.
Teaching SKILLZ:
INTRINSIC MOTIVATION – The instructor can tell the students to remember how many tries it took them to break the board on the first round, if they broke it at all. On the second round, the instructor can motivate the students to break the board in less tries than they did on the first round.
Brain SKILLZ:
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to spot the board falling, and break the board midair. This works on their ability to make sense of what they see, as they have to target the spot they need to hit on the board while it is moving.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each line, you will need an instructor standing on a chair.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • The 1st student, will stand below the instructor..
  • The instructor will be hold board so that it drops with flat side towards the student.
  • As the board drops the student must accurately palm strike the board.
  • Each student will get 3 drops then head to the back of the line.
  • On round 2, drop the board from a lower height.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Be fast, slow strike will just push the board away.
  • Keep your technique strong.
  • Watch for the board to be right in front of you before you strike.
Step 5
  • Continue so that each student has at least 2 turns.
