Take a partner and one stick and start moving the stick using anything but your hands (make fists) From time to time pass the stick without stopping. Relax and continue as you pass the stick in different ways and while minding your eyes (do you look at the stick or the ground or let your eyes relax forward) and add directing the stick as a strike to your partner and he has to continue and move with your movement and avoid getting hit. Remember you are a person with a stick rather than a stick with a person so mind your own body first and the stick afterward. To make sure you remember this hold the stick in your hands and defend against an attack or more by moving your body away and letting the stick move from the movement of the body and not the other way around. Remember to keep moving. Don’t protect the ground beneath your feet with your feet.
