Primo Tempo Drill – Practice

Immediate Practice

10 minutes – Practice the primo tempo drill with a hand target.

  • Have the target partner start with large, confident steps. This allows you to strike from terza.
  • Initially work with a rhythmic approach.
  • As you get more proficient, have your partner approach less rhythmically, or introduce both forward and backward movement before entering misura larga.
  • Your partner should always step honestly to measure and try to exit as you attack. If you’re striking in tempo, they should not be able to exit.
  • You can practice the same exercise gaining from out of measure first.
  • Switch roles with your partner every 10 attempts.
