Road to becoming a freestyler

Post by WooWee55 » 30 Sep 2008, 01:44

Okay ive decided to pick up on freestyling, the only problem is that the most kick ups i can do it about... 5 :? . I cannot do ANY tricks :( . I am really dedicated to learn to freestyle and i will update daily with all my latest accomplishments on my "road to becoming a freestyler". I would like to learn a lot of tricks and would like to be able to keep the ball up a lot. If you have any tips or drills or you just want to comment you are more than welcome to :D Oh and one more thing... I cant juggle with my left foot :oops: so im gunna have to practice that A LOT too

Yes, of course you can become a freestyler. It all comes down to practice. Check out the Freestyle Tricktionary for instructions on how to do some easy and more advanced tricks. Freestyling can and will be frsutrating because it involves constant practice and failure. You will find yourself failing on tricks the first times you try it but stick with it. It will eventually come and you will feel good when you nail the tricks. Okay, good luck man. Remember, Practice, practice, practice.

Well I would say you should be able to get around 15. I mean really I can only juggle between 30-40 and I can do ATW well. Juggling will help you get a better feel for the ball so I would practice getting around 15 and then try doing some tricks.

Juggling is one of those things that takes a week or two to get good at. You gotta juts keep pushin to get 6...then 7....8...9...and so on

Not to brag but 2 years ago i sucked ass at football. Now im getting looked at by colleges from the southeast and play on an R3PL team. A little didication and determination can take you anywhere you wanna go

Good to know you're improving, soon enough you'll be doing 50 no problem.

Learning freestyle is tough though, but have fun.
