Today Erik had a great drill to help white belts learn how to watch instructors on both sides of the room. This skill allowed them to follow along on the white belt form.
With the students in a line facing the mirror and Erik on one side of the room and Jake on the other, they performed 3 jabs (with a small step) up, then one big step back.
Each time they took a big step back they landed on the other side. The learned to alternate feet and learned to alternate watching both instructors.
At first some kids were perpetually backward, but by the end, they ace-d it. That set the stage for learning the form with all it’s directional changing.
