Take your stick and a small ball or a few of them (about the size of a large marble or one of the small rubber balls for kids to bounce off walls) Place the ball on the ground and slowly use the stick to move the ball by touching first and than moving it without loosing contact. Do this for a while as you relax the shoulders and hips so you don’t become bent from the attention and than using a wall send the ball to bounce off the wall and play return with it for a while. Un-focus your eyes and let them take in all that is around you. Once this is done Throw the ball in the air and work on directing it either up or down using the end of the stick. Remember to move from the body and use a comfortable grip. Place no importance on where you start the movement from (left right high low) and remember that the body when aligned can move in any direction from any location.
Throw the ball behind you or in front of you with your eyes closed and than open them and work. Have a partner help you with this if you can and work also using either hand or or from the position of holding the stick as a walking stick. Relax your face and keep your breath going. Close either eye and work to find your range of vision and how you can best move to survive with this happening to you.

Remember that it is easier to keep moving than to move and stop and move. Keep your breath going. It is the beginning of all movement.
