thanks guys. I have always been told about this one touch thing since i have started first training awhile back, and this is pretty much what it has come to. I know that i should take bigger touches when defenders are around, and smaller stouches when they are close, i know all the tactics of it. But at the same time, when i do this style and when im moving at a good pace there is something about the feeling i get like the ball is glued to my foot and i feel invincible...i dont know. I do think i am a pretty stiff dribbler, but look at ronaldo, he is also very stiff and stands up very tall, so i think everyone is a little different.
I will definitely keep practicing this style of dribbling, because i want to get to the point where i can do this as fast as somebody could run, it may seem impossible to you guys, but its a goal and dream for myself. But i will also take the tactics of dribbling into mind, by taking bigger touches to get going and stuff.
About the whole shooting thing, as i said before shooting is definitely my biggest weakness, but its definitely improving every session i do. My right foot and left foot are very very close when it comes to shooting. I can pass the ball and shoot the ball the same distance with both feet. But both of my techniques are very different. When i shoot the ball with my left foot i almost have to be at an angle, and the form is very unproper and it looks as if i am side swiping the ball. But with my right foot i can actually apply technique and constantly change the form which i cant do with my left for some reason. My dribbling with my left is also close to my right foot, but this video is not a very good example of it to be honest, atleast for the speed dribbling part. This is not something i have practiced, i have been able to shoot with my left and right foot since i was 6 years old, i think it was because i used my left alot more than all the other kids.
And for whoever asked i am 16, going to be 17 in 2 months
and when you guys mean to take longer strides im not sure what you mean by that, like i should knock the ball farther in front of me? but then the can will get it :<
