To the beat of a different drum

We march at night silently. We march. We march. We march.

Soldiers must work in groups to attain their goals but so do everyone else. To learn to work together and on the reverse angle of this to learn to work within someones resistance we must be aware of their tempo of movement and work within it.
How can we do this ?
1 place your hand relaxed on your partner and work to feel his pulse. Once there work to feel both yours and his or hers without letting the two affect each other. Freedom must precede action in the mind.
2 Allow your partner to attack you using different speeds and always work slower then him or her to gain both mental and bodily smarts and again freedom from repeating what was just uttered.
3 Attack your partner and from time to time freeze in motion and see how this affects his attention and movement. Do this drill with a swift exchange of roles so there is no fixation on waiting. Waiting is a key step in dying.
