. If you don't normally shake, then it's probably stress/anxiety. You need to learn to relax a little bit. All they can to is yell at you. They can't eat you.
. If you do normally shake, inform the instructor.
.
. The Army has manuals and field guides for EVERYTHING you need to know. If a soldier is expected to do it, they have a manual. Ask your instructor or see the link.
. For meditation: think happy thoughts and breathe slowly and deeply.
.
. Grabbing the seam worked when I was in boot camp, but that was over 30 years ago.

Try tensing and relaxing different sets of muscles in turn.

. If it's just your arms, try grabbing the seams of your pants. . You may be trying too hard. Relax a little bit.

are you're hands to your sides? try and do a form of meditation? Can you close your eyes? closing your eys and relaxing makes it a lot easier.
