To keep a high level of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation I would play games to improve his technique, this should keep him interested. The interactive skill I would use is a pass in football. Now I would expect the novice to have sum prelimory experience of kicking a football as this is the most popular sport in the world. I would give him target to hit and maybe I would pose as a moving target for him to predict my moment and pass the ball in front of me. This is the most difficult passing skill along the floor. For intrinsic and extrinsic motivation I would let him take penalties against me for fun or f there was a group of people I would have a game and see if they will apply what they have learned in the game.
