Class Agenda for May 2016
Here’s an idea of what class will look like during the month of May. This is a flexible framework, but it’s good to have an idea of goals to be accomplished with each session. After all, most of us only get to meet once a week for a little over an hour, so we definitely want to use the time well!
This is a great time to chat and catch up before the class gets started. We’ll all circle up and do each movement together.
Scapular push ups.
Long Lunges and Squats.
Skin the cats.
Now we start to quiet the mind and focus on the task at hand, which is to move well and hone our saber skills.
Tai-Chi style sword movements
Selective tension and relaxation skills.
Dynamic saber movements:
This is just a few minutes to add some flair to your saber style. It’s challenging to get the spins down, but simply takes practice. We’ll only spend a little time on this each week, as it’s better to practice at home when nobody is watching!
Figure-8’s foreward and reverse.
Salute to overhead.
Break out into small groups:
Members: start into warm-up drills like the star pattern, moving into half-time sparring when they feel ready
Beginners: Learn basic saber movement modules for attack and defense. begin drills if time permits
We’ll circle up and create a battle space, fighting 1V1, going to 3 points for each match. The victor stays in the ring. Sparring is not required.
Tidy up, and take a saberselfie!
