- Go directly to the defender with pace and impose a threat.
- Take small touches. A touch with every step.
- Use the momentum and balance of the defender against him. Put the defender’s balance in other direction as where you want to go.
- Your touch away must be EXPLOSIVE!
DRILL #1: back to “defender” – bounce ball against a hard surface – turn and attack the defender
DRILL #2: dribble a T-shape of cones. Imagine avoiding the defender’s outstretched leg.
DRILL #3: spread cones around you. Flick-up or bounce the ball – attack and dribble cone after cone around you. Beat them with a quick change of pace.
