Have a partner hold your hand and you work on moving up and down and walking without letting him know you are moving. Every time he feels you move (you can make him honest by closing or covering his eyes) he hits you by leg or by arm. Next have him relax his arm and shoulder but still hold your hand and you work with your free hand and arm to find out all the options you have to lever him by relaxing and feeling where the tension lies and where you can move. Again keep the shaken hand in place although you can move your body as long as he does not feel the movement in the hand.
This drill comes to learn to lever and to keep one of his points of reference stable. Why do we do this ? Try to work on levering each other by holding one arm with both of yours and moving both of them. Your partner will find it easier to follow with his body and stay free than if he has one point that is stable and the rest is moving. Work on experiencing the levers on you and remember not to press with your arm alone. You freeze and get hurt this way. Just relax it and walk.
