Have a partner with a large stick push and pull you with the stick in a continuous way to learn to move from strike to strike (it is all the same contact in different levels) and you tense up against the pressure for a moment to become aware of the natural tension and desire to stay in place the body has and than relax and let the stick move as you guide it to avoid harm to yourself (for example if you have a pressure on your chest you guide it with your shoulder and arm to protect your face and neck). Do this for a while and progress to doing this continuously so you control the movement of the stick and the partner though blending and guiding of the movement.
