Sort of keeping informal diary of what was done but generally noting – all sessions have been outside
Slightly longer warm up and stretch with explanation
Reassurance re not following, slow, stiff, no need to learn everything at once…
If attendees in tight trousers:
– no running, skip, knees up/behind warmup – walking & foot cross over side to side only
– no pattern and front snap, half turn only
Blocks, strikes, stances and explanations
How to hold pad
Can use tree if no wall for stretches
2nd – 5th session
As above where applicable
Emphasise foot angles, positioning including turns
By 5th session
– ask them to shout if not already doing
– holding kick paddle facing partner if not already doing
If not many attendees can try double side kicks
Moving around in drills not just practice forward/back in lines, do the unexpected
Intro to one step sparring and 1st poomsae movements.
6th session onwards
Sparring – introduce body armour and sparring, start to adjust force accordingly but give extra space/time.
Drills – introduce reverse kicks if confident with front kicks.
