take a piece of rope about twice the length of your arm and tie it to a circle. Now start rotating it fast over one finger and slow down and back to fast without stopping. Add a finger and move it up the arm and down as it turns. See how you can move the arms from the core and try it with the legs and if you can with the torso and head/neck as well. Use common sense to see how much and what type of rope is best. Have fun and play with your kids if you have any. To add a more imidiate combative aspect you can tie a small piece of metal and see what you can do with it or use the rope for trapping or deflecting and scaring (a fast rope to the eye is like a whip) and so on. Put in on your body (in the belt loops of your pants for example) and see how you draw it and use it from there. Again, have fun and remember that we learn one way and work another with the same intention and a different objective.
