5 meters x 10 meters
Supplies and Equipment –
2″ x 6″ x 6’-8’ board
2 end caps notched to hold board upright
* Although you can buy Battle Board kits, a homemade version is easy to construct.
Players hold the dowel over the center 2 x 4 board; grip styles should be similar. Feet are flat and braced on the board. On go, kids try to pull their opponents to a standing position or over the center board or pry the dowel from their hands.
Trainer Notes –
We recommend a slow, controlled match initially for each pair of kids to give them an idea of how much force to apply and to allow them to consider a bracing strategy as well as balance. Be sure to pair similarly sized kids and monitor so that no one flies over the center board.
