Round 1: Target Recognition: have strikers with their backs to the wall and curved kick shield holders in front of them. When instructor yells “SPIN!” striker clinches pad holder in plum position, throws two knees and spins them on centerline to get away from the wall, and throws non-stop knees until instructor calls “TIME!”. Reset. As many phases as you want and then switch.

Round 2: Same as Round 1 except instead of “TIME!” Call “KICK OFF!” Striker throws Defensive Front Kick and tries to sprint to the other wall. Pad holder drops pad and tries to chase them and tag them with two hands. If striker is caught before touching wall, they do 5 burpees. If pad holder doesn’t catch them, 2 burpees.
