Robin Hood and Little John
Two partners face each other with hands up and palms outward in a sitting stance. Both partners try to knock the other off balance by slapping their partner's palms. To win at this game, you must know when to resist and when to move your hands, in order to cause your opponent to fall off balance.
Have students line up at end if room. Set three marks on the floor down the room. Students run to the first line, touch the floor with their hand, and run back to the beginning. They then repeat the drill to the second and third lines. Variation: instead of touching the lines, students perform pushups, sit-ups, etc.
Students form a circle with everyone facing the center. Instructor calls out various stances, which the students quickly assume.
Need 5 belts tied together and lay out in a circle. Two children stand in the middle of the circle and try to push each other out of the circle. They can only grab each other’s belt. The first one to touch the belts, step over the line, let go of the opponent’s belt, or fall down loses.
