Sputnik's tricktionary

Post by matt » 29 Aug 2006, 11:38

Okay EF Freestyle enthusiasts; Here is my new and updated Freestyle Trick Dictionary (which I copied from Sputnik....). If you are looking for more detailed explinations of tricks, or a solution to a specific problem, i suggest you search the Moves and Tricks forum (viewforum.php?f=26) as there is a thread for almost everything you could ask in there.

The tricks will go from Easy-Master, and will have a definition and a small amount of advice on how to go about the easier tricks. Below each trick will be a link to a video, and a time signature, which highlights the specific trick. Try slowing down the trick and watching it over and over to help you learn it.

Note: I've decided to colour code
Easy (Red)
Standard (Blue)
Intermediate (Green)
Advanced (Purple)
Pro (Scarlet)
as this will be a long guide and it will be easier to find specific sections and tricks.

Note: -*ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT:- will be under every trick
*meaning: that if you have already learnt the trick stated after, it will help with learning the trick you it is posted under

First off; the EASY TRICKS. Beginners should learn these first.

Footstall-
Balancing the ball on the instep of ones foot. Curl toes upwards and 'pin' the ball to shin if you can. If catching from juggling, raise your leg slightly before touching the ball, and lower as you come into contact with the ball, cushioning it.
http://user.tninet.se/~ihr451r/emil_part1_liten.wmv (1:11-1:12) Emil does a footstall from juggling
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: Juggling up to 10

Atw: Around the World-
A single revolution around the ball. Can be done inside (hit the ball with the inside of your foot on the joint of your big toe) or outside (hit the ball with the outside of your foot on your pinky toe). Can be done from footstall, or from juggling. Learning from stall is where you should start, as you have more control.
http://www.expertfootball.com/training/ ... style4.wmv (0:37-0:50) Bane shows both inside and outside ATWs.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: Juggling to 30, footstall

Half Atw: Half Around the World-
A mix of an atw and htw. Start off as you would with an atw; hit the ball with your pinky toe, then start a revolution around the ball. however instead of finishing the revolution with the foot you started with, shift your weight over and complete the revolution with a touch from your other foot.
http://www.streetsoccer.com.cn:81/shipi ... atwout.gif Lizhao does a half atw from juggling.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: Atw

Crossover-

Jump, and with the leading leg go around/over the ball, and with the trail leg, kick the ball back up under the leading leg. Learn first without the leading leg, by dropping the ball from hands, and trying to jump and kick the ball with the trail leg, without using the leading leg at all. When you can kick it back up to your waist, try going over/around with the leading leg.
http://user.tninet.se/~ihr451r/emil_part1_liten.wmv (around 1:02) Emil incorporates a crossover into a long combo.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: none

Rainbow-
Ball is caught between feet and flicked up in the air. Get the ball between your feet and roll the ball up one leg with the other (can be done with both feet but usually with the dominant leg) and with the other foot, bring your foot up and connect with the ball with your backheel. The ball should flick up into the air, and maybe even over your head, hence the name rainbow.
http://www.expertfootball.com/training/ ... estyle.wmv (2:02-2:05) Azn Freestyler does an over-the-head rainbow
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: none

Neckstall-
Catching the ball on the lower neck/upper back. With your back at right angles to your legs, head facing straight forward, and shoulders raised, the ball is balanced in the dip created on/just behind your neck. Practice by throwing the ball just above your head and catch it. Throw higher as you become better.
http://www.the10soccer.com/free/videos/palletimo.wmv (0:16-0:18 ) Palle does a neckstall from juggle.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: none

Hotstepper-
Bouncing the ball alterately with the soles of your feet. Quite easy to do one or two, but more can be a challenge. Drop the ball from hands and after it bouces hit it back down with the sole of your foot. As you do this try and hop over so your other foot is ready to do the same.
http://user.tninet.se/~ihr451r/emil_part1_liten.wmv (2:57-3:00) Emil does around six in a row.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: Juggling with both feet

Okay guys, those up there are the easiest tricks. Next up is the STANDARD TRICKS
HTW: Hop the World-
Kick up with one foot, and do an ATW with the other. Can be done with either foot, and in two ways. The first way is lightly touching the ball with one foot, and with other jumping/hopping over it with the other (although this gives you less stability to carry on combos afterwards). The second way is to kick the ball up with one foot, put it down, and then come around the ball with the other. This is harder as you have less time.
http://user.tninet.se/~ihr451r/emil_part1_liten.wmv (3:48-3:52) Emil does alternate HTWs.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: none

Outside Htw/Reverse Htw: Outside/Reverse Hop the World
A htw but the leg is swung over the ball in the opposite direction. Can be done with either foot in two ways, much the same as htw. Hit the ball up with one foot, then bring the other leg in towards your body, then over the ball at its peek height.
http://www.streetsoccer.com.cn:81/shipi ... outhtw.gif Lizhao does a shakily finished outside/reverse htw.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: reverse crossover

Toe Bounce-
Ball drops onto your standing foot, while the other foot goes over it. This move can proove difficult. Practise by dropping the ball from hands onto your foot and going over it with the other. However the ball wont bounce up. Once you are confident with this, you must curl your standing foot's toes upwards and do it almost standing on your heel. The more momentum you can get hitting the ball up the better, try 'sliding' back when you do this.
http://user.tninet.se/~ihr451r/emil_part1_liten.wmv (3:03-3:05) Emil does two good toe bounces.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: none

Chest Stall-
Balancing the ball on your chest. Lean backwards so your chest is as horizontal as possible. If you cant do this well, put one foot back to aid you. Cross your arms over the ball when you catch it so that your chest creates a dip for the ball. To practise throw the ball up and try to cushion the ball.
http://user.tninet.se/~ihr451r/emil_part1_liten.wmv (4:23) Emil does a short chest stall.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: none

Headstall-

Balancing the ball on your head. Place the ball around the place where your hairline starts and in the centre of your head. When the ball goes forward, so must you, etc. Eventually when you get better you wont have to move your feet,just sway your body. To practise kneel or sit down, and do this over and over.
http://user.tninet.se/~ihr451r/emil_part1_liten.wmv (4:24-4:25) Emil does a controlled headstall.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: none

Nosestall-

Balancing the ball on your nose. Fairly easy to do once you can do headstall. Balance the ball on the bridge of your nose, move your head to accomodate the balls movements because it is on more of a point than your forehead.
http://img437.imageshack.us/img437/3963 ... all1wc.gif Owen4ever does a nosestall from a headstall.
ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: headstall

Lipstall-
Balancing the ball on your lips To start learning balance ball with hands, but as you progress can be done from nosestall. your lips should be in a position as though you are going to kiss someone. lean back so your lips are pointing straight up.

ADVISED TO HAVE LEARNT: Headstall, nosestall

Aeroplane/Backroll--
Ball is rolled over both shoulders to the air. From juggling, the ball must be hit up to head height, then when its at its peak/coming down, make contact with one shoulder, and spin round so it rolls over your back to your other shoulder and off, to continue juggling. To train throw it up yourself, without juggling, ajusting the contact point and spin speed if it doesnt work.

There's already a 'glossary' on the site but it's pretty sucky. It needs to be seriously revised/expanded. It won't be bad if we could merge it with Sputnik's dictionary.
Also the script (which I wrote 100 years ago) could be updated to categorize the terms into nicknames/freestyle terminology/etc... know what I mean?

Another thing I noticed with the player/team profiles is that they are just cut/pasted. How about we do an original section on soccer traditions? For example, people from different countries/regions of the world post about how the local youth systems work in their city... where pickup matches are played... how/where the game is customarily watched... specific bars/public squares where matches are shown and so on...

the glossery idea is a good one. the tricktionary is over long and maybe searching is a good idea. not sure what u mean aboot the script though?

Another thing I noticed with the player/team profiles is that they are just cut/pasted. How about we do an original section on soccer traditions? For example, people from different countries/regions of the world post about how the local youth systems work in their city... where pickup matches are played... how/where the game is customarily watched... specific bars/public squares where matches are shown and so on...
lol expert.... did i :oops: haha :D lol i was too bored so i just copied and pasted :D
