Take a strong thin rope and hold it with both hands at a comfortable width. Have a partner hold onto the rope and pull and push it in different ways to make you move and unbalance and you work to stay as relaxed and aligned as possible. This is a drill to help you learn to keep your hands full and relaxed. The thin rope is hard to hold without too much tension and you will learn to position and move so you can do the work using everything you have. Change roles and repeat the drill a few times and remember to keep the focus on you. If you concentrate on the rope you will not be aware of all your parts and how they work together.

Another drill with the thin rope is to loop it around a door frame or a pull up bar and lean as you counter with the rope held in your hand. Relax and find the right tension and angle to use so you can rest a part or all of your mass on the rope and it will help you control yourself.
