The only way to improve is to learn and practice! However, it’s not always the most fun thing to practice the same thing over and over again, so it’s fun to mix things up to stay motivated for training! I came up with this game as a fun way of practicing kicks & moves.
The Kicking Challenge is essentially a whole bunch of different challenges you can play against a friend or a group. There’s a list of challenges like Most Roundhouse Kicks in A Minute, Longest Jump with a Flying Side Kick, etc. I made a printable of a whole list for ideas that can be downloaded below! All you have to do is print, cut them out, put them in a hat or a bag, and get ready for FUN training!
Feel free to switch these up based on your team’s abilities, and add in any on the Free spaces! I’d love to see YOUR videos/pics of your version on The Kicking Challenge! Make sure you send them to me through some form of social media!
I challenged Jared Reed to compete in The Kicking Challenge with me, and it was a blast! Watch below to see who won 😉
