Paraphrasing Coach Mullen

(Edited Sep 19 to add definition of "Nickel" as used in the drill
Thank you Patrice for pointing out the need for clarification.)


Try this sometime

Swing drill by way of Michelle Mullen (spelling), met her, was coached by her when she held a seminar at ASU.
You will need a nickel and dry hands ;)
Place the nickel in the palm of your hand, keep the hand OPEN, place and swing it, do not lose the nickel.
You can not grab it. Centrifugal force will keep it on your hand, this can also foster good arm position as if you roll the forearm, the nickel will slide.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em

Hello Patrice, I hope you are well.
Thanks for asking that question. Yes a "Nickel" is a coin worth five cents, 1/20th of a U.S. dollar.
Your question also reminds me that the composition of most US coins have changed over the years. Newer nickels weigh less.
I believe I've tried it with the new lighter versions and it still works.

You guys are good!!

I've added a description from Wikipedia to the post.
