Insights for Physically Distanced Drills without 2020 Armor:
Note: To find the different drills you can look at the title card on the screen and it will tell you the type of drill they are focusing on.
Make sure that all your students have something they can do while the drills are going on (whether counting down the other students kicks, keeping time, doing exercises at a secondary station.) Keep them occupied so they stay focused.
Minimize waiting time between activities. Have secondary stations going where students can stay active.
Giving students a goal to work off keeps things exciting for the kids.
Focus on specific skills like endurance, flexibility and stamina and record student scores so they can compete against each other and themselves on a leaderboard.
Incentivize students to beat their own scores with push ups if they haven't beaten their own best score. This keeps energy high and pushes them to their limits.
Provide gentle encouragement and correction to get them to push. PCP = Praise, Critique, Praise.
Insights from Physically Distanced Exercises With 2020 Armor:
We did 10 drills with 2020 Armor focusing on stamina, reaction time and power. To find the drills just follow the super( title card) on the screen and it will tell you what the drills featured are focusing on and whether they use 2020 Armor.
It's easy for students to set up the 2020 Armor because it's so simple to operate. The students instantly knew how to use the system.
Track scores on reaction, reflex and power to get precise measurement that students can measure to keep them excited about the drills and motivated to beat their own personal best. You can do this on the vest or in the app. On the vest is less precise but takes less set up time.
Set short times for the drills to keep them fully committed and pushing themselves the entire time. Also gives the option for more attempts to do the same drill and best personal scores.
Students will self correct their technique to get higher scores as the system incentivizes proper technique.
Get students cheering each other on to create a mini tournament like environment in class. To create even more excitement have different training groups training against each other with the 2020 Armor.
Make sure that your students are in the right areas and separated in the dojang so they don't come together when they are excited while playing the games.
The app shows you how strong you can kick. Kids wanted to stay a half hour after class to get the most powerful kick. With 2020 Armor you have to kick kids out of class. No one wants to leave. This can really get enthusiasm up by holding these little in class competitions.
Shouting a little encouragement to push themselves a little further can work wonders for getting students to improve their scores. Whether it's trying to reach a different color goal on the vest itself or a more precise number driven goal on the app. The more clear the goal, the harder they'll train.
Students get excited by the tension in the game survival. The game modes keep students on the edge of their seats because they are never exactly the same.
Your students often think they are faster or stronger than they actually are. But you can't argue with the technology because it's objective. This can give them a baseline to strive towards surpassing.
The bonus round was physically distanced sparring matches. Very worth checking out if you're looking for a way to get sparring into your drills despite physical distancing!
If you don't have enough vests for every single student, use 2020 Armor as an independent station you can use as a reward. Because kids get excited to do it!
