A 30 step sparring drill to work on timing, distance and concentration. The first 10 cuts done by each are the same (attack/attack). The second 10 has on student matching the others cuts (attack/reflect). The last 10 are a combination of cuts and blocks (attack/defend). The concentration and focus is important as the students may to change cutting patterns in attack/reflect and change 5 cuts to blocks in attack/defend. The timing is played on by actually trying to hit swords together (plus the noise is kinda cool).
