Settings & Setup

  • Game #6 (Reaction)
  • Health setting: Level 1
  • Time: 30 seconds to 2 minutes
  • 2 or 3 vests, each vest is on a BOB/Wavemaster/Bag
  • 1 person doing the drill
  • Skill Level:  Intermediate color belts to advanced black belts
  • Setup time: 5 minutes


Once you have put all the vests on game 6 and a level one health setting and all at the same time setting, hit start on all of them at the same time.

The reaction game will start on all vests at the same time. You can have 1, 2 or 3 vests. The more vests you add, the harder the game becomes.

The student will need to look at all the vests at the same time and react to each of them as the lights flash on the vest.

The goal is to try to get as many successful hits on all the vests as you can.

What They Are Learning

This game will build great situational awareness, fast twitch muscles and decision making abilities.

The student will be bombarded with multiple stimuli, and some of these stimuli will be at the same time. This will test their decision making ability. You can use this opportunity to suggest to them to take the shots that are closer and easier instead of one that might be harder or further away.

You can also use this opportunity to throw a student into a highly stimulating environment without the fear of getting hit back. This way, you can narrow the focus of the skills being taught.
