Kids stick curriculum
« on: September 18, 2008, 12:41:53 PM »

I've been asked to develop a kid appropriate stick program for kids 7-15.

Any suggestions from you old hats?

Julies Melegrito of Nebraska, ex-Ernesto guy, has STX for Kids. That Century bought from him, yet retains him somehow on a contract as the main traveling teacher of it?

ABout twice ot three times I year I do a Friday night "Kids night" before the weekend seminar. Its a big deal a the bi schools and they can be packed with the little ones i their uniforms calling me "Mr. Hock."

I do basic block and strike on the clock, from which I see how far I an push the material and they can grasp it. Block, ctach the stick and strike. and so forth. I am often surprised just how far these kids can do and how much these kids can grasp.

And I can do the kob-kob drills, and the Diamond pattern is popular. Even the X-patterns.

Then I might switch to hand applications, but it is easy for me because I'm in, then I'm out and I don't have to worry about a long-term program. basically kids just like hitting sticks and can be thrilled doing that for a large part of my session.

I use the approach from Remy Presas who I've seen teach kids through the years.

I have never gotten into 6-count sinawalis because even adlts have trouble in the beginning messing with those.

1/2 size sticks....broomsticks or anything work.  no fighting, so no worry of splinters.
