Hello AMAI Family!

 

In this blog series, we will post reminders of what the students worked on during the previous week. This gives you or your child ideas for how to practice at home between classes. If you need extra help on any movements or sections of the form, talk to your instructor about adding a Virtual Membership onto your current membership to unlock videos that break down every section of your form and every technique! As we continue our summer quarter don’t forget to practice your forms and endurance.

 

Lil’ Dragons:  Lil’ Dragons students warmed up with animal walks. They focused on the techniques Eagle Claw High and Bicycle Low! To help with their Eagle Claw High parents can grab onto students shoulders so students can wrap their arm around their attackers to break their grip and get away! Keep practicing your eagle form and be ready to show off your Eagle Claw High!

 

BASIC Program: Kids BASIC students warmed up with a series of relay races. They practiced sections 2 and 3 of their fighting form, they focused on using their Jab + Cross combination as well as their Front Snap Kick. Make sure to practice your endurance to stay ready for your test!

Teen and Adult Basic students began class with an upgraded endurance workout. Students reviewed sections 1-3 of their form focusing on performing. They also focused on building their own original shadowboxing combinations.


Kids BBC Program: Kids BBC students started class with a series of movement drills designed for sparring. Students learned section four of their shaolin form. They focused on their Toe Taps making sure their kicks were powerful and fast!

 

Adult/Teen BBC Program: This week, the Adult and Teen BBC students started off class with an endurance workout. They learned section four of their form. They also worked on using stances to attack and defend in sparring.

 

Foundation Weapons: Students in the Foundation section of weapons started off with their small room clears into their rest/sitting stance. The focus was on combining sections 3+4 of their form and performing them as one cohesive form. Students should practice the first half of their form to prepare for full form performances.

 

Advanced Weapons: Advanced weapon students warmed up with a review of sections 3+4 of their form. Advanced weapon students focused on performing the first two sections of their form as well as their Dizzy Step. Students also worked on their wrist strengthening to make sure they have complete control of their weapon.
