The use of fragile things

Take a pencil and hold it with the sharp end forward and press it into a wall up to the point you feel it is starting to break. Check the angles so you are aware how it handles and use different grips and speed to see how you can move without breaking the pencil. Now with a partner push and guide him toward a location or up and down using the pencil and your partner will try to break the pencil with his body (not against the sharp end, Do not harm yourself). this is a good way to learn to relax your wrist and the rest of your body and mind and to become aware of the limits of things.
There are limitless ways to use a pencil and other objects to this aim and another one is to hold it with both hands so you cover it completely and have a partner try to take it from you using force. This will be more interesting if you hold the pencil behind you (don’t fall on it Innocent)
