DRILL – FINAL: Piranha in the Pool

Designate an area as “the pool” which should be big enough for all students but not too big to create too much space. One person begins as the Attacker with a knife. The Attacker begins slashing but can change victim as much as necessary. All other students must attempt to defend or avoid the attacks. If possible, whoever defends, controls and disarms the Attacker is the Attacker for the next round.
