Drill: Quick Sides
Equipment needed: 2 Wavemasters Per line
Instructors needed: 1 Per Line
Description: The students will practice AGILITY by trying to do sidekicks hitting the correct pad when the instructor calls out either left or right.
  • The instructor can try to trick the students by pointing in the wrong direction as they say the side the student should kick.
  • The students should listen to the side that the instructor calls out so that they can practice hearing what was said.
Step 1
  • Have students form lines with their instructor
Step 2 – Explain the Rules:
  • The instructor will have the student stand in between the 2 wavemasters.
  • When the instructor calls out a direction either right or left the student must quickly sidekick the correct pad as fast as they can.
  • The student is aiming to do 5 kicks in a row without being tricked by the instructor.
  • If the student can do it without being tricked by the instructor, then the instructor must do 5 push-ups.
Step 3 – Takeaways:
  • Eyes open so you know when to hit the pad.
  • Knee up so you can hit the pad quickly.
  • Kick fast so that you practice hitting the pads before they hit the ground.
Step 4
  • Continue until each student has 2-3 turns.
