Use noodles to create a pound sign that students can use to jump in various directions to work balance. To make sure they are focused, you can throw in some techniques as well.
Kids | Balance | Coordination | Focus
Increase your students' balance skills by stacking body shields under them while executing kicks. Be sure to support your students when stacking three body shields so they are not injured if they fall.

The students will balance a focus pad on their foot during a fully extended side kick to build great leg strength. This will teach your students perseverance so that they never give up when doing drills.

Students will draw figure 8's with their leg almost as if they were kicking. This is great for control, balance, and preparing students for multiple kicks.

One student will perform round kicks in a circle trying to maintain balance and avoid hopping. The other students in class will help out by holding the kicking paddles in a circle.

Students will be challenged to execute clean front kicks while staying inside a ring, without hitting the body shield on the ground, and popping the paddle with good power.
Control | Focus | Kids | Kicking | Balance
