Closed 6-Count Double Stick Drills

We often work on Heaven, Standard and Earth 6-count drills.  In Heaven, tips point up (forehand, backhand, backhand), in Standard, the tip is down on the second and fifth stroke, and in Earth, tips point down as strikes go to the low line.  We practiced some other 6-count patterns, including Redondo 6 (redondo on second and fifth strokes), Roof 6 (again, on second and fifth), Umbrella 6, and Shield 6 (the forehand hits and retracts instead of pulling the stroke through, which leads into the shield).

Try drilling them all together, back to back.
