Skill: Concentration
Drill: High Middle Low
Equipment needed: One wavemaster per line
Instructors needed: 1 per Line
Description: The students will develop concentration with their kicks by hitting the wave bag with low, middle, and high combinations. This will help them concentrate on multiple commands while also building accuracy in their kicks.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the student hits the wrong level, or does the combination incorrectly, then they have five pushups. If everyone was able to not get tricked by the instructor and everyone does it correctly, then the instructor has five pushups.
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The student must be able to listen for the instructor to call out the combination, and hit the appropriate places on the pad. This works on their ability to follow verbal commands, as they have to hit high, in the middle of the pad, and on the lower part of the pad correctly.
Step 1
Divide your students into lines.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
For each line you will need a wave bag with two pieces of tape that divide the bag into low, middle, and high sections.
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
  • I will call out a 3-move low, middle, and high combination.
  • You will hit the pad with the proper combination.
  • If you make a mistake, then you have to do 5 push-ups.
Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Chamber your knee up high.
  • Point your knee at one of the 3 levels.
  • Don’t forget to re-chamber.
Step 5
  • Continue until each student has at least three turns.
