Skill: Coordination
Drill: Kick What You See!
Equipment needed: One clapper pad per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: In this drill we will be working on foot eye coordination by flashing the clapper pad a specific way. The student must have good coordination by kicking the pad with the correct kick, using the correct part of the foot.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student does the incorrect kick, or it takes more than three seconds to figure out what kick it is, then the student has three pushups. If the student is able to do it correctly every time on their turn, then the instructor has three pushups.
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to see how the pad is being held, and kick it correctly while saying the name of the kick. This works on their ability to respond correctly to visual cues.
