|Might be a horrible idea but does anyone do themed classes for the holidays?
Trying to build a bit of engagement in my kids classes (ages 5 to 12) so thinking of doing a Halloween themed one and then a Christmas themed one.
Still want it to be proper Taekwondo but maybe throw in a bit of a twist when it comes to exercises and warms ups. What can I do for Halloween?
Normally class is generally structured as follows:
Warm up (agility game or exercises)
Padwork or some partner work
Fitness based game to finish (relay races, circuit or similar)
For my warm ups I quite often get them to go up and down the room like animals (bear crawls, crab walk etc) or the same but give it superhero names (The Flash = sprinting, Hulk = lunges + smashing hands together). Suggestions for Halloween versions?
Any ideas to adapt the rest of my class?
