Assignment Overview:

  • Today you are going to work on FOCUS. 
  • Here are the three FOCUS tips that I want you to practice today:
  • Keep your hands up when you kick.
  • Bend your knee before and after you kick.
  • Watch where you are kicking.

Section 2: Skill-building drill (Do three sets)

  • Math kicks: You will solve a simple math problem given to you on a flash card and then do front kicks equal to the sum of the math problem. Continue until you solve five problems in a row. 
  • Ninja kicks: Mark a small box with tape to stand in. Do ten kicks while keeping your feet in the box while blindfolded.  

Section 3: Passive stretches 

  • Hold bow and arrow stretch for 10 seconds – Cross one arm across your body. Use the opposite arm to hold it to your chest locking arms at the elbows or slightly higher.
  • Hold backbend for 10 seconds – Stand with feet wide apart. Place hands on your hips. Keeping your head up, bend as far back as you can without falling over.
  • Hold front leans for 10 seconds – Stand with feet together. Exhale out as you slowly lean forward. Do not reach for your toes, simple let your body hang while stretching your Back, Hamstrings, and Calves.
  • Hold middle splits for 10 seconds – From a standing position place hands on the floor. Slowly slide your feet out to the sides. Stop when your knees start to bend.
