This drill is a way of checking that the external half of the form "what the opponent is doing" is as clear in your head as the internal half "the form itself". The first iteration is timed, to set the baseline. 25 seconds is fast, 35 seconds very slow, for this drill. Add 5 seconds. Repeat the form with partners giving the correct application stimulus such the the one doing the form can just walk through it without pause. Time this. Everyone does one push-up for every second over the original time+5sec. More advanced students should be able to do this with either hand.
