Hi, this is Sean Hobson, for Expert Village.
We’ve already talked previously about the proper steps, the proper approach, the proper
way to catch the ball. Now, the important thing is we want to make the kick happen.
The most important thing is the proper way you get the ball and the top of your foot
to meet to actually make a good kick happen. We’ve already shown how we get the snap and
take the appropriate steps. Now we’re ready to approach the ball. Let’s go through this
slow on how to drop this down (video demo). We’ve caught the ball; take your steps and
then stop. Now he’s ready to approach the kick. You can see that he’s holding the ball
out in front of him. He’s not going to take the ball, throw it up in the air and then
try to let his foot find the ball. We want to bring the foot to the ball and have them
meet. This will give you a good pocket to kick in. Notice that everything is balanced.
Everything is going toward the area that he’s kicking it to. He’s not kicking the ball backward.
Instead, he’s approaching the ball; everything is coming straight through when he makes the
kick. Let’s kick one away and then we’ll show what a pooch kick looks like (video demo).
He catches the ball, he steps in, the approach, he keeps his head down looking at the ball.
You don’t want to lift your head up and then try to make the kick. There is one last kick
you make if you’re going to try to pooch kick. You don’t have a lot of room and you want
to try to get the ball up higher and you don’t want it go quite as far. You’ll hold the ball
a little different. First of all you’ll tilt the ball backward. You don’t want to kick
it and explode through it, instead, you want to get it up a little more. Also, the extension
on the leg is not so much exploding out through the ball. You’re going to bend it a little
more in order to get the ball up a little higher. That’s the way you explode through
a kick and the way you can pooch kick to keep it in a shorter distance and get a little
more height on it.

  3. You have obviously not watched a pro soccer game. When you and someone else run at a ball full speed and make hard contact with no pads on. I could last a entire football game and you couldn't last a entire soccer game.

  4. ok how bout this….neither sport is harder or more "manly" i play soccer and football so i have experience…and i play for some good ass teams for both sports….every sport in the world has an arguement on which is more manly except Rugby and UFC. those are both bad ass sports…and i just wanna let yall no..wen you see a soccer player get hit and "cry". 9/10 hes faking just to get the freekick…i admit its gay but its a strategy…everyone is entitled to an opinion

  5. wow soccer10259269 is a total idiot cause 1. in football atleast 1 guy is hitting another guy as hard as he can soccer players only bump into to each other 0-2 times a game 2. in soccer you need a lot of stamina but foot ball is still more rough and hard hitting
    "I could last a entire football game and you couldn't last a entire soccer game" is the dumbest thing ive ever heard

  6. sry i messed up wat i was gonna say.
    1. in football atleast 1 guy is hitting another guy as hard as he can in ever play and theres about 25 plays per quarter (correct me if im wrong:))

  7. "wen you see a soccer player get hit and "cry". 9/10 hes faking just to get the freekick…i admit its gay but its a strategy"
    i think your right

  8. to me both sports are hard to play..in football…u have to be very muscular…u have to tackle other players and stuff…bt in soccer u have to be running for most of the time..and ur legs have to be ..very very strong….so both sports are baad ass…..so stop arguing about it….

  9. Well i agree to an extent, in football there are more injuries ,but in soccer those people are violent! that on guy headbutted the other guy for talking about his momma.

  10. Well there are slide tackles and spikes ive played both sports football is getting hurt worse, but soccer is no walk in the park either..

  11. what team is that i play for the cleveland hill high school eagals spelled the way i spelled it im a fullback

  12. What the ****? I'm pretty sure it's called a punt not a punt kick. And why did the idiot say to tilt the ball backwards?

  13. soccer10259269
    Yes several people died playing football and it was banned for a while, thus the pads and helmets.  Soccer is for women.
