Short for Technique Wars. Select two teams of equal number of students and 2 or 3 judges. Teams line up and one team member from each team steps forward. Each member is asked to perform a technique or series of techniques. Judges score or point to the winning team member. If you have 3 judges and team A gets 2 points and team B gets 1 point, then team A wins but team B still gets to keep its 1 point. After each team member has performed the requested technique, the team with the most points wins the tech wars.
Students stand at regular intervals around the fighting ring just outside of its boundary. A student stands in the middle and has a certain time to do nothing but strikes using the students on the sides as "targets." The student may move around the ring coming close to his "targets" or may strike from the center. The student must rapidly vary direction of attack each time and must maintain the intensity throughout the round. The student may only strike to the "targets" and not to an area that is not occupied and they must look first before striking. There is no contact. The next round may be kicking or blocking. Time limit is adjusted for the students rank, knowledge, and fitness level. For senior ranks, the "targets" periodically step in from behind making an audible noise and the center student must look, turn, and attack instantly. Intensity must not diminish or have hesitations.
Race to wall
Participants run forward to a wall, touch it, and run backward to the starting position. May add pushups, sit-ups, etc. to perform after touching wall.
Guardian of the gate
Stand two Wave Masters 7 to 8 feet apart to mark the sides of the gate. Select 2 students to be the "Guardians of the Gate" and give each a body shield. Have the other students line up and on command, one student at a time will run and try to get through the “gate. The two guards will try to prevent them from getting through the "Gate" by pushing them with the body shields. No strikes are allowed. Each student who gets through the gate replaces on of the guards who then joins the attacking group.
