Week of 1/16-1/20: MLK Initiated Change
Word of the Month: initiate–begin, commence, start, initiate, inaugurate, usher in mean to take the first step in a course, process, or operation. begin, start, and commence are often interchangeable.
Week 3: Let’s tell them that No change small or big can be made with thoughts. Tell how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Initiated great change in our country for equality and upholding what is right for our country as an American Democracy. But he didn’t do it overnight and he didn’t do it alone. Ask the students about some of their plans to initiate change for the better. When appropriate let them know that they may need to seek the help of others to accomplish their goals…that takes humility.
BJJ Curriculum: TD to INITIATE
from the takedown, no matter what position the td you showed led them to….try to get them to get rid of the pause, with drills like from tabled position (jumping to the back) etc. then have them drill the td to that immediate action drill of pass or opening a closed guard or back take.
Muay Thai: (Jesse Fill some basic combo)
Joint Articulation- Individual joints
Mobility- plyometric style exercises
Circuit- 2×3 min rounds total with 30 seconds per exercise. Upper body, lower body, core. one round off. then another with different Upper, lower, core.
Gloves on- 35 minutes left in class
20 minutes of drilling (5-6 x3 minute rounds) Upper body combos *Punches and elbows
Lower body Kicks offense and/or Defense ( for example, one inside kick one outside kick)
Finish with combining punches and kicks simple or not. like
1, low kick, reset, 1,2.
*always Muay Thai Marching
“circuit”- games, ladder drills, obstacle course, etc. let the kids be kids
Upper body focus- Seated criss cross or kneeling- Upper body strikes to help with details like rotation and snapping on punches
Lower Body kick/ knee Focus specific
Repetition Training/Technical for Punches – This is lining them up like Karate and having them do simple upper body combos or build. 10-20 reps. this is where they can hold a jab and you have them hold the finishing position to check their posture between resets. then a cross for instance. then a jab cross then a double jab cross. have fun with it.
Combination training: combo drill in front of one another taking turns 1&1 or 3&3. if the kids are not ready to receive a kick yet. don’t have them. have the other kid spin through on their kick instead of impacting the other child. *****always muay thai marching
also good to finish with bag training.
