T-Test - Agility Drill for Martial Arts Training
The T-Test is a timed drill that focuses on forward, lateral and backwards agility. This agility drill involves running forward 10 yards to a cone, shuffling left laterally 5 yards to a cone, shuffling right laterally 10 yards, shuffling left laterally 5 yards and finally running backwards 10 yards to the starting point. Agility training allows martial arts students to change positions rapidly and effectively. This enables martial artists to evade an attack or get open to launch an attack (i.e. moving laterally in order to avoid an opponent's blow and thus being able to quickly launch an effective counter attack against an off-balance opponent).
This agility exercise is called a T-Test because the shape of the drill format looks like a T. The T-Test is also known as the T-Drill, T-Agility Drill, T-Agility Test, etc. This agility drill is used by many sports teams including football, basketball, etc.
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. If you have had an injury or are in pain, please see a doctor before starting any stretching or exercise program. For other agility exercises (i.e. agility ladder drills), please visit the main Martial Arts Agility Training section.
