Guide to Children TKD Class


 

This page is a guide for the first class of TKD seminar in Porto 2002.


Problem: children get bored easily.

             Children dont understand something when we explain.

             They may want something funny.

But they also need practice: repetition and understanding. + development of technique.

Hint: They are more flexible in mind and body than adult.

 

Solution<1>: Variation of techniques

-         From simple to complex.

Example: 1) one kick

2) kick, kick

3) kick, kick, kick

4) kick, step, kick

5) kick, turn, kick

6) kick, kick, punch

7) step, step, kick

8) kick, turn, kick

9) kick, jump turn, kick,

(Consideration : 1. they repeat something

                          2. they do something different every time.

                          3. they will understand something.

Solution<2>: Change.

             A series of variation focuses on a technique:

therefore they will be bored at last

             We have to make some change.

             Example: 1) variation: kicks or punches

                              2) kicking targets

                              3) punching,
