Focus mitts are one of the best training aids you can use.
The better the feeder is, the better the training.
Use to use it all the time in JKD.

feeder and fighter work out what glove position means for different techniques. THat is if feeder positions glove at one angle, then its a jab. If he uses the glove another way its a cross, etc. Assuming orthodox stance, a basic one is left glove for jab, right glove for cross. Put gloves at shoulder level for elbows going across the body. Move them out a bit for hooks. You can work out how you want to do kicks, etc

Feeder starts off with basic jabs, cross's, kicks then repositions to force person to move as well.
When warmed up, feeder works to make fighter recognize openings.Feeder changes position to make fighter work on footwork and feeling of distance. Always ask fighter if they are breathing...no breath in attack, no real attack...
You can also use gloves in kali.
Feed angles with stick and position glove for fighters counter attack. you get the idea...
Most important...feeder has to be alive with person they are training with. The fighter will feed of the energy of the feeder.
A good feeder puts in little ideas when feeding. make them positive.."breathe throught the attack," punch through the target, hands by chin." Feed in good habits...
