I found out I have to take an hour long kids class tommorow. I don't mind doing adult classes but I really am unsure how to handle kids. I've drawn up a bit of a plan 5 minutes: Warm up and Dynamic stretches 10 minutes games/competitions: Stuck in the mud with push-ups after getting caught, push up war (knocking your opponents hands from under them while in push up position), push war (standing opposite your opponent with palms shoulder height facing your opponent, you have to try and push them over by hitting their palms) 20 minutes kickboxing: Jab with step Jab, cross Jab Cross, rear roundhouse Side kicks on kick pads and punch bags Parrying straight punches Competition: ski sit (who can maintain ski sit the longest winner gets to hand out punishment to others), plank (same as ski sit) Stretching Cool down I probably won't get through all the sections on the kickboxing part, I just listed enough so i definitely wont run out. I think the age range is going to be about 13 and under. I haven't interacted with kids this young since I was that age so I'm struggling to know at what level this lesson needs to be pitched. I want to teach them, but at the same time want them to enjoy it, and I know if I just go into all the technical detail they will get bored, that's why I put games and stuff in. Can anyone who has kids or has taught them tell me if they think this lesson would be alright? Also what should I do if they go mental and just don't listen to me or have an attitude? Some of the parents stay to watch so I would feel a bit self concious telling their kids off as I'm 18. Also is everything I listed safe for them to do? We practise on a wooden board floor. However I have a material floor I can use in the ring.
