Forgot to mention in earlier post...
I've introduced a new structure to adult classes at Arbroath Thai Boxing. A number of students were not happy with the balance given in classes between hard graft and technique work. My structure gives a good warm up which makes the students work hard while also warming up all the major muscle groups. I introduced tabata after the cardio and before the stretching. This went down well with people enjoying being pushed and getting a good sweat on.
Padwork seen students rotating partners and taking turns on the pads for teacher lead drills. We worked on throwing the left kick and how to throw it from different angles, covering your intentions etc. To end the session we warmed down with footwork drills and demonstrated yaang saam khum.
Hopefully we can stick to this and make the class interesting but structured in a useful way for working within a one hour time constraint.
