I suggest this exercise.  First, play eight yellow
defenders  (four medium and four large) scattered with about four inches
between them.  Then take a stash of red pieces and quickly ice them
all.  Ice them without crashing, with the tips nice and close, and
minimally (no extra attacker points, you should have a medium left
over).  This practices moving fast and precisely on an attack, a skill
that is always valuable.  Then take exactly one large green piece and
use it to restructure all the attacks, ending with the green piece
successful.  This practices restructuring attacks, and assumes that the
green player gave you the prisoner on the agreement that you'd not
squander it.

Do you have the capacity to make a video of you performing this
exercise?  I think that would be terribly enlightening.
