During sparring when the students are fully padded I put two Wave Masters together to simulate a door at one end of the room and have one student stand by them (he/she is the fan). I then have two other students at the other end of the room, one standing in front of the other. The one in front is the bodyguard and the one behind is the celebrity (name one to make the game more fun). The bodyguard has to escort the celebrity to the waiting limo without the fan touching him/her with feet or hands. All sparring rules still apply. Good exercise for footwork and learning how to move your opponent without grabbing.
Have students pair off. One student holds a target paddle in either left or right hand. The other will hit the target. Target holder will try to move the target pull it away before the other can make contact with it. The student holding the target may tell the attacker how he or she sees him/her telegraphing the punch and give pointers. Student holding the target must stay within range to make contact.
Grip the pennies
Each student is given 8 pennies and is instructed to lay 4 of the across the palm of his/her hand, close the hand into a fist so that each of the four fingers rest on a penny, thus holding it in place. Once everyone has the pennies in place, perform basic closed hand techniques. Perform 10 pushups for every penny you drop. Teaches students to keep a tight fist.
