What are some good Kumite (point style) drills for teaching beginners? Light kicks to head, punches and kicks to body, and takedowns are all practiced. I have a long list of videos that Iíll be going through on YouTube, but I enjoy what you all have to say so Iím asking here as well.

Iím looking for
- beginner friendly striking combinations
- drills for teaching foot work
- beginner friendly sparring drills

Thank you all in advance!

This might not be useful but what i found worked well in a prior style was we paired up the beginners with someone more experienced - minimum of 1st kyu or similar worked well i found. We then told them, not to kill the experienced person, try just to use techniques they have been taught but come on hard and just go for it and see what feels natural. The experienced person would then defend and occasionally a light tap to the head if gloves were dropped too far / no guard etc.

This always seemed to work well as it helped some people get over the barrier of throwing strikes at people out of worry that they would hurt someone. For those who were over aggressive then it also taught them some humility to be so easily handled - and for all of them the light head taps helped reinforce the proper guard etc

A few things I used to work on in the past:

Cross the T: this is a matter of using footwork and techniques to get into a position where you are side on, but the opponent is not; his front is to you. From there, he has more targets open for you to go after and for him to defend, so advantage offense.

Clear with a Kick: we're kickers in TKD, so what I used to tell a student was to clear with a kick when they finish a combo. This helps to keep the opponent out of range so you can see them come back and re-engage. It also teaches them to control some space.
