How to use them- First hold them steady, then vary timing, distance, height, frequency, stimulus reaction, combinations, etc.
Forms Training - You can help your kids without knowing their form!
Look for the same things they judge them on in the tournament
• Balance, power, beginning and ending in the same spot, snap, etc. You can help them in these areas of their form.
• The same goes for One Step Sparring and Demonstration Forms
Korean Terminology - Quiz the kids on their terminology just as you would for their spelling words or other homework. They only have to memorize one group of words every three months.
