Footwork training

Unpredictable, fast, low, precise, short and various steps - foot braking methods - quick reactions - speed estimation - anticipation

Basic footwork and movement skills consist of learned footwork patterns. They are accomplished by drills using cones and ladders. Sportsmen practise fast feet ladder drills with a variety of foot movement patterns. Automated footwork is reached by constant repetition of patterns over the years.

Advanced footwork technique consists of learning footwork where each step has a different length and direction. You have to learn which steps are safe to make to avoid injuries because the risk of injury with this technique is higher. Firstly you will learn to make every possible and impossible step. By practising combinations of various steps your movements will become automatic. Finally, you will learn to determine whether it is safe to use advanced footwork in a situation which you need to solve.

Footwork and movement skills are important in many sports. Maintaining peace in every situation will help you to reduce your reaction time. Improvement of spatial vision will allow you to react even faster. Very fast, low, precise and short steps are the key to awesome stability and fast reactions. Alteration of movement direction by special footwork techniques along with tilting the whole body is very effective.

Even when you have planned your next step, you can decide what your next step would be in the last moment. Predicting the direction and length of your next step will be very difficult. The technique of special rapid and low steps requires you to learn different foot braking methods. Foot braking methods by one or both feet are very useful when you want to change the direction of your movement or you want to continue your motion in the opposite direction.
