Stick Overhead v. left or right handed attacker
Drill: Dive for the Stick: Have partners line up facing each other at the center of the mat with the stick between them. Partners should be equidistant from the stick, with elbows on knees. On instructor’s call of “GO!” students attempt to grab the stick. Whoever can get it first gets to be the attacker for Stick Overhead using right or left hand and partner must make defense. Play with variations of distance (3 steps away, at opposite ends of the mat) and how they must get there (begin on stomach facing away from knife, bear crawl, army crawl, etc.). Rotate one line at regular intervals to allow for different match-ups.
