9th Grade Team - Skills and Tech.

To answer your questions:

Technique to work on:
- Stance/footwork! Many of the boys are slow on their feet, and come out of
their stance. I want them to push the pace of the match and be the
aggressor, but many of them at this level have yet to grasp basic fundaments
like a good stance and staying in position.
- Getting out from the bottom! Although many of the kids (like myself) are
not "naturally" fast, I do believe this sense of urgency and explosiveness
can be taught through drilling/constant repetition.
- Wrist control & moving the opponent --> Rather than blindly diving at
their opponents' legs, I strive to teach the kids to control the tie-ups.
Moving the opponent toward us and establishing angles to set up shots from
will be part of the drilling.
