Self-defense and Sparring in a Covid world
You might be wondering how you learn self-defense and sparring when you need to keep 6ft. apart. Well, sometimes, it helps to use a prop! At GDD, Ms. Maria and Mr. Kevin use a large kicking pad as a visual to help students learn to practice footwork and combinations, all while the students keep their social distance. The kicking pad stays on the ground while the students move in a circle around it. They gain an understanding of physical space in addition to being able to practice hand and kick techniques. Even though you can't touch each other, it doesn't mean you can't learn the techniques. It just takes some ingenuity and creativity!
