This drill is designed to increase a students understanding that the more we apply our focus and concentration the easier a task becomes, when we keep our focus on our teacher when she is speaking, the more we understanding her lessons.
The greater focus we have when doing our homework the more correct answer we will have. Sparring is no different, the more we focus on our opponent the better we will be able to defend ourselves.
Have the students pair with a partner and spread out around the classroom. Instruct the students that one side is to throw one single attack, either a jab, cross, or a hooking slap motion to the side of the head. Have the other student defend with either a parry or cover motion.
Emphasize to the defending students that the more they focus on their partners movements, they easier defending their attack will be. Then switch to conduct the drill for the other side.
