Footbag, often referred to as the foot bag, is a sport that can be played alone or with a group of people kicking the ball. Except for the foot, almost any other part of the body can be used except for the hand or the arm - just like a football.
First, understand the game.
The ultimate goal of the team's “sacking it up” is to put the bag in the air as long as possible. In a group, if everyone plays at least once, then the team has completed “reincarnation” or “hacking.” When everyone kicks bags at least twice, they have completed “double spirals” and so on. If you are alone, your goals will be different. Individual free-style sacks have evolved into a very complex sport in which numerous kicks and stands are strung together to form a few tricks.
Second, buy a good quality bag, preferably a bag filled with plastic bean.
The bigger the beads, the harder the bag are. If you have a bag with large beads, consider rolling over it with something very heavy, such as a car, to break them down.
Third, the inner and outer surfaces of the shoes are very flat, with a wide flat top on the toes.
Skateboarding shoes are good for learning; they provide a lot of areas that can kick out and pull bags. However, in addition to basic knowledge, even professionals like tennis shoes.
Fourth, wear shorts.
Pants limit your movement and provide a surface that increases the likelihood of the bag being knocked out of a predetermined path.
Fifth, practice 3 basic kicks - inner (left and right), lateral (left and right) and toe kicks.
Inside kick: Gently place the bag in front of you. Use the inner side of the foot, almost directly at the center of the foot in the center of the foot, and kick the bag straight up. Adjust the angle of the ankle so that the inside of the foot is parallel to the ceiling. This will ensure that the bag is straight up and does not deflect sideways. It helps to bend another standing leg. After kicking, grab the sack. Repeat to drop, kick, and catch until you've been kicking upright. Next, try to kick the bag with alternating feet and hands. See how many times you can do it in a row!
Outside kick: Gently put your arm aside and kick the bag out of the middle of the foot. It's hard to do, but keep in mind the above tips - angle your ankle to keep the outside of the foot parallel to the ceiling and bend the standing leg.
Toe kick: Gently place the bag in front of you but farther away from the inside kick. Use a toe to stand the bag upright in the air. This kick is similar to the kick that is usually used to manipulate football.
Sixth, practice 3 basic foot positions - medial (left and right), lateral (left and right), and toes.
Internal file: Put the bag in front of you. Use the inside of the foot, in the middle of the shoe, catch the sack with the foot by gently lowering the foot a couple of inches (a few centimeters) in a cradling motion. This will help absorb the impact of the bag on the foot and keep it from bouncing off the side. Imagine catching the bag as you would a raw egg or water balloon.
Outside booth: Put the bag outside and shake the bag by putting your feet down a few inches.
Toe stall: Put the bag on the front and then lower the bag a few inches to shake the bag.
Seventh, Combine kicks and stalls.
Try doing patterns, such as outside left, inside left, inside right, outside right, or whatever you want to make up. This will help you learn to control the direction of the foot bag.
Eighth, keep your feet low; It may seem difficult at first, but if you can kick the sacks, your skills will undoubtedly increase.
Also, this helps with kicking too hard, or having kicks go off in random places; the knee is a pivot, and it will not go perfectly straight up.
Ninth, the habit ends in a weird local sack.
In order to keep a hack going, you may need to stall it on your back, chest, neck, face, knee, or even between your chin and neck. The most important thing here is to keep it going.
Tenth, keep it relaxed while kicking.
This will undoubtedly increase your playing time and reduce muscle strain.
Eleventh, practice regularly.
As with most motor skills activities, it is better to practice a few minutes or half an hour each day than to practice a few hours at intervals.
Last but not least, be sure to buy a high quality footbag.
Many foot bag on the market are filled with sand. But sand is neither safe nor sanitary, especially for children. Sand easily leaks out, this is the biggest drawback of sand foot bag. To solve this problem, our foot bags abandoned the tradition of using sand-filled, switch to plastic bean. Safety and health non-toxic and odorless.
