2 – 3 Square Pads
1 instructor per line
The students will practice KICKING by trying to do front kicks hitting a target as far as they can, each time they hit the pad they want to hit it farther then the last.
Teaching SKILLZ: INTRINSIC MOTIVATION
The instructor will prompt the students after each kick to try and kick the next pad even farther to beat their last score.
Brain SKILLZ: RESPONSE INHIBITION
The students will work on staying focused on kicking their pads farther and farther they don’t want to lose focus and just start playing with the pads or being silly!
Have students form lines with their instructor
Step 2 – Explain the Rules:
The students will stand up and face their instructor.
The instructor will hold the small square pad at about waist level of the student.
When the instructor says “GO” the student will kick the pad as far as they can with a front kick.
On the next rep, the goal is for the pad to be kicked farther then the 1st!
Step 3 – Takeaways:
Kick fast so that the pad can go farther.
Knee up so that you can hit the pad hard.
Keep your eyes open so that you hit the target!
Continue until each student has 2-3 turns.
