That's why you watch the hips, not the head. You can get a better sense of where they're going while also keeping their ball movement in your periphery for any potential stealing opportunities
(Not that this kid had any real chance against this guy regardless)
@Sven and Otar, makes me think of Guy sensei when he fought Itachi and Kisame by only watching their feet and legs
@TheSeasonIAm, well now I'm curious, generally in both sports and fighting you want to keep an eye on the center of mass of your opponent because that's where their movements/intentions will betray them. But maybe there's another method
@Sven and Otar, haha ball movement
@Sven and Otar, that's actually true, it's called mirroring. The less you mirror your moves the less advantage your opponent has. You center of gravity is key to sports and fighting. If you're ever in a fight use their center of gravity to your advantage. If they lean back as they get ready to attack all the weight will be on their back, use it.
@fuddruckers, it was a lesson I was taught both in basketball and tae kwon do
@Sven and Otar, right on, i totally misunderstood your first comment haha but yeah I've seen alot of coaches and sensais that never taught basic stuff like that.
Fear the beard
Unrelated, but anybody notice that one kid in the background jump, celebrating like he just won the super bowl or something?
Eyes on the ball kiddo
What ever happened to James got a Harden? This would be perfect for him to comment on. (Seeing as that this is James Harden)
Self pass. Other way.
