Chess Drills A La De La Maza

Concentric Squares (forks and skewers):

Knight Vision I

Knight Vision II

Michael de la Maza emphasizes physically moving the pieces on the board for the concentric squares drill and physically touching the squares on the board for the knight vision drills. That sounds good to me, but I’d think it’d be good to do all three: physically interacting with a board and pieces, moving pieces and highlighting squares on a computer, and doing the exercises blindfolded.
