2 Square Pads
1 instructor per line
The students will practice KICKING by trying to do front kicks with the proper leg when prompted by the instructor.
Teaching SKILLZ: TRICKERY
The instructor can try to trick the students by fake moving the pad to see if the students will kick without being prompted.
Brain SKILLZ: VISUAL PROCESSING
The students should wait to see the hand held out by the instructor so that they know which foot they’re supposed to use.
Have students form lines with their instructor
Step 2 – Explain the Rules:
The instructor will put the small square pads on their hands.
When the instructor holds out their right hand the student will kick with the foot on the same side
The goal is for the students to kick what they see not cross the lateral plane.
They will switch feet whenever the instructor switches hands, continue this process until the student does 5 reps.
Step 3 – Takeaways:
Eyes open so you know which pad to hit.
Knee up so you can hit the pad quickly
Kick fast so that you practice hitting the pads hard.
Continue until each student has 2-3 turns.
