Do the same while sitting and against a wall and than while walking as you hit and than work with the shovel or in any combination you like. Remember not to organize your attacks and movements and don’t give them names. This way you remain free and unlimited.
Take a shovel or another semi sharp object and a partner. Have your partner lie on the ground facedown and place one fist on him. Now push the blade into him using the other hand and his job is to evade the blade with his body first and limbs and head if need be. Work slow and tense up on purpose to recognize and control the effects of fear. Do the same while you are face up and place most of your mass on the fist so your partner will learn to relax and move under pressure.
