THE ACFT LANDED HARD ON RUNWAY 21. THE CERTIFIED FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR INDICATED THAT DURING THE LANDING FLARE OF A FULL FLAP LANDING THE STUDENT PILOT ALLOWED THE AIRCRAFT TO YAW 45 DEGS OFF THE RUNWAY HEADING. THE CFI IMMEDIATELY INITIATED A GO-AROUND BY APPLYING 'FULL POWER, LAST NOTCH OF FLAPS UP, AND CLIMB'. THE STALL WARNING CAME ON AND THE CFI PITCHED THE AIRCRAFT NOSE DOWN. THE AIRCRAFT IMPACTED THE GROUND THREE TIMES PRIOR TO COMING TO A FULL STOP. THE PILOT'S OPERATING HANDBOOK PROVIDES AMPLIFIED PROCEDURES FOR 'BALKED LANDINGS' (GO-AROUND). IT STATES, 'IN A BALKED LANDING CLIMB, THE WING FLAP SETTING SHOULD BE REDUCED TO 20 DEGS IMMEDIATELY AFTER FULL POWER IS APPLIED. UPON REACHING A SAFE AIRSPEED, THE FLAPS SHOULD BE SLOWLY RETRACTED TO THE FULL UP POSITION'.
