    just wanted to throw out a fun drill i've used quite a bit, and see who else has done it...Two people sparring, with normal rules (whatever you use), with one catch. Both people have to hold on to a 4-6 foot stick with at least one hand all the time!! Lots of fun. Helps teach footwork, and using angles. Of course, you can use the stick to your advantage, so it's not perfect, but it's a fun exercize. Anyone else ever use it??

    We do a knife drill where you hold a 6 foot stick in front of you,
    vertically. Only your arm, up to your shoulder, is allowed to go
    past the stick, and you have a practice knife in that hand. Your
    opponent has a practice knife, and tries to touch/slice/stab/tap
    the stick and arm. You try to defend the stick with the one arm
    that's not holding up the stick. The stick must stay vertical, but
    you can move back and forth.
     
  6. Sounds like a great idea - never done it before but I think I'll go home this afternoon and try it out.123
