Teguruma for 4-year olds

Lotsa fun tonight at kid's judo. We had about 6 participating. This was a slightly younger crowd - aged between about 3 and 5. It's really cool to be able to teach a grappling art to a 3 year old. Tonight we warmed up and everyone seemed to be catching onto the routine of how the class runs. We galloped around the mat for a while, practiced kneeling knockdown then toestomp randori. As cooldown we did a falling exercise. From my knees I'd turn them upside down with teguruma and hold them as they learned to slap hard with one arm. The performance cue for this game is, "slap the mat harder than it slaps you!"
