Counting leaves

Start counting leaves of a bush or a tree of any other natural thing such as rocks and lines in the ground. Keep breathing and have your partner walk freely behind you and from time to time he will push you or attack you in any way he or she wants. Act naturally to distinguish between a push and an attack and work to keep breathing and keep counting at the same time. The purpose of the drill is to remove the thought people have that we need a special frame of thought to work with other people’s violence and when we are not sure how to act.
Be mindful that being able to keep your analytical mind working will do wonders with practice to keep you calm and working well under pressure and that working in nature has a healing affect on us and it brings us more to ourselves than spending time what we think is a controlled environment.
