| Making It Real…with hand targets:

As they got more confident, I moved backward, sideways, or forward, forcing them to adjust to meet the target. It was great!

Well, that was my Monday night. I would love to hear other ideas and drills. What are you doing and what equipment are you using to help with beginning sparring?
