Skill: Kicking
Drill: Flip the Box
Equipment needed: 2 small towers per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: Students will demonstrate KICKING by practicing their ability to front kick a pad and use enough power to make the tower flip. This will challenge them physically by requiring them to kick each pad with enough power and accuracy to flip their target over.
Teaching SKILLZ:
TRICKERY – The instructor can say words that sound like a number, like saying “tree” instead of “three” to try and trick them and enhance the student’s auditory processing.
VISUAL PROCESSING – The student must be able to see where they are supposed to hit in order to “flip the box”.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Students will stand up in front of the tower.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • When the instructor counts students will aim to hit the front edge of the higher tower.
  • The students goal is to flip their pad over so that it lands on the correct side.
  • The student will do this 3 times before heading to the end of the line.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Eyes open, so that you can see where to kick.
  • Kick strong, to flip the tower.
  • Knee up, so that you can hit the correct part of the tower.
Step 5
  • Continue each student has 2 turns.
