Taitoc Performance 1 and 2 -module are focused on optimal use of the acquired movement library in creative ways and in diverse environments.
The main themes of Taitoc Performance 1 and 2 -modules are combination movements of body control and jumping, balance, running mechanics, change of direction, perceptual movement skills and movement rhythm. In addition, the movement skill exercises are integrated with the skills of throwing and catching a ball. Taitoc Performance 1 and 2 -module is based on utilizing the skills learned from the Foundations -modules and developing novel movement patterns. The single movement skills progress to movement combinations that introduce new challenges in learning movement skills. Taitoc Performance 1 and 2 -content is connected with the skill demands of various sports.
Diverse movement combinations and creative use of the movement library enables comprehensive development of all motor components, such as rhythm, coordination and adaptability. A new area of development, directing focus and perception coupled with action is also introduced in this module.
In conjunction with the main learning theme, each training session starts with a movement preparation component that is divided into development of body control and mobility. Movement preparation warm-up helps build functional strength and flexibility that ensures that fundamental skills as well as physiological abilities are developing hand in hand. A core strengthening segment takes place in the end of training session. Also, each participant is given a movement homework that is meant to be a motivation for independent learning and training until the group meets again.
The level 1 skill training is based on short movement combinations, that require mastering a variety of skills as well as physical fitness. Identifying the individual style of learning and improving the ability to focus are some of the goals of movement combination sessions. Novel stimulation in the learning environment emphasizes skills of observation, perception and decision making while training the movements.
Balance skills are also introduced at this level through balance movement exercises that are executed both on and off various apparatus.
The second level will bring more demanding challenges. The movement combinations are longer by duration and include external stimuli increasing the need for higher level perceptual capabilities.
The higher level of challenge with the movement combinations requires the mover to apply the tools in movement library in various ways while enhancing the physical fitness and conditioning.
