Unit 6 of Voices deals with Extreme Sports, we had all agreed that trying out parachuting in Costa Brava would've been great but, it was a little bit over our budget, so we had to make do with a session of Newaza, which properly played forces everybody to an extreme all-out effort and you can take my word for it because i personally confronted some of my students in a ground randori, and can asure you they were fit!!
this is my suggestion to other teachers willing to enjoy the thrill of fighting their own kids in a safe way, without getting hurt, also enjoying the view of your own students fighting each other with the satisfaction that they shouldn't hit each other; that is, channalizing their aggressivity in a positive manner.
I first asked them to connect to my blog and answer these questions:
- what is the purpose of the activity?
- what is a randori?
- what is the sequence of activities we will follow?
- translate this activity. Use the automatic translator if you need it but, format the document like this: one line in Spanish, another line in English making sure the translation makes sense.
- send your documents to my e.mail.
Afterwards we went to the gym and these are some pictures taken from the activity, hope you enjoy them and motivates you to try the experience with your own class, if you do, let me know how it went. thank you.
