We have had a blast in taekwondo during the month of September! We played a lot of games that helps to improve our sense of balance and requires us to multitask. One of these games is called Ninja Rocks. To play this game, you have to walk across the ninja rocks (punching targets) and you also have to watch for the ninja sword so you can block it when it tries to tap you on the head.
We also took time to practice our forms which we will have to learn for our belt tests.
The elementary students had the opportunity to challenge each other in a game of Ninja Tag. In this game, students are paired up and they each get two lunges to try and tag their partner on the arm.
We started off our dance class with some fun warm-up routines and stretches set to music (because music makes everything better) to get our bodies and our minds ready to dance. Once we were all warmed up, we tested our skills with several movement routines across the floor including skipping, galloping, and multistep combinations. After mastering the floor routines, we ended our class by practicing our jumping technique jumping over a foam block. There was so much growth seen in just this one class, that I can’t wait to see what has happened by the end of the year!
