Equipment needed: X-Ray Sheets
One of the most important elements of Power is speed. Our techniques can not be powerful without momentum needed to execute them.
This week’s drill develops not only relative speed, or fast something is between two objects, but it also develops quick decision making.
Have the students’ line up in two lines facing a partner with one side holding a sheet of X-ray paper. The students on the other side should go to their fighting stance. They should listen to the instructors’ commands of jab or cross and deliver the appropriate technique with speed and power.
Instruct the students to execute the proper punch with as much relative speed as possible.
Also explain to the students that by them listening to the commands of jab or cross and executing the techniques as fast as they can, they are developing their ability of quick decision making.
