- Hand Fighting
In this drill the D-linemen will line up no more than arm lengths away from each other. The lineman who is playing the offensive side will repetitively try to strike at the defenders chest. The lineman who is playing the defensive side will quickly swat away the offensive players arms not letting him control him. At no point in the drill will either of the players feet move. After a while you can practice on other techniques such as rips and swim moves.
Once again, pair up and have an offensive player and a defensive player. The offensive player will grip the breastplate of the defensive player shoulder pads. On, the whistle the defensive player will then do anything they can to regain leverage. After you do that for a while you can add a ball carrier that must be tackled to make the drill a bit harder.

offending player. Your arm will then come over the offenders shoulder and you will push off their back. Once you do that for a while you can then make the offensive player try to stop the player playing on offense
