Take a couple of partners and run this drill session:

First have both partners walk through you with a fist to the body and you simply move to avoid getting hit while focusing on keeping breathing.

Next place both hands at the back of the neck and repeat the drill with the focus of keeping your eyes relaxed and avoiding any contact so your body sense will extend further. Look forward and up.

Next place your fists on your hips and repeat the drill focusing on paying attention to your alignment. Note the difference in movement in your hips and shoulders and find your breathing and eyes to help you simply feel what is happening. Avoid trying to fix yourself, you are not broken just a bit dirty with tension and fear and once you notice them they vacate on their own accord.

Next Close one eye and than the other (not both) and work on how this affect the way you see and not see the world and what happens when you relax and move where you wish to be rather than relax. (communicate with your partners about the best speed for this drill and remember you are here to learn rather than push through pain)

Next extend on arm straight to one side and repeat the drill, This is a good drill to show how much we focus on attractions in front of us rather than stay inside and calm. When you feel relaxed enough move so your evasion is hitting your partners on their way without stopping them but adding to their movements. Remember to avoid getting stuck in response and choose where you want to be.
