Description: The students will practice COORIDINATION by demonstrating their ability to quickly go in any direction that the instructor calls. This will challenge them mentally by requiring them to use their quick listening skills to go to the correct ring.
Teaching SKILLZ:
TRICKERY – The instructor can point in one direction while saying a different direction. This will further enhance their auditory processing, as they will work on their ability to analyze what is being said, and recognize the visual cue as incorrect.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The students must hear their instructor call out a direction, see the corresponding ring, complete their kicks and sit strong. This works on their ability to complete a task quickly and accurately, as they have to finish their kicks fast and sit strong in order to get the point.
