Response Drill

Iowa workshop participants, please comment on what you learn from this drill.

Todd Elihu : Response Drill is to train not to react locally to the opponent’s touch on your shoulder but to simultaneously move your hand in toward the opponent. Therefore the intention is on hand out and not on the opponent touching your shoulder. It also trains timing.

This exercise is intended to train no reaction at the place where I am contacted, while reacting from a different place.
