Have two partners hold one of your limbs and relax yourself. Feel where you tense up against their touch and simply allow the relaxation to take the punch from their hold. Breathe without stop and work on where you feel you are comfortable to move and note as well how this effects your partners in relation to each other. Move with the breath only where you feel the door is open and avoid trying to complete a movement and work on building yourself anew with every breath. You can tense and relax your limb from time to time to better feel the place it is natural to go and move our entire body as one to avoid tensing up against their own direction and tension. Feel your tension first and from that control of yourself and than others will come.

Second drill: Place a stick over your shoulders or your back and have two or more partners move you with their fingers and later with knives or sharps of any kind. Their goal (note the way is not so important as the end in mind) is to have you collide with the others and you work to keep free from getting stabbed and at the same time avoiding hitting others. You must relax and move freely to achieve this and to relax your eyes as well.

Breathe relax and move, you may think you did something wrong but try to work with what you have and let the way present itself. If you try to win, you work on another and he must loose. This way creates aggression and tension and harms you a lot. Work on relaxing your contacts and see where that takes you.
