If never been able to kick properly cause my shoulder keeps slipping out. But cause of this video I can kick a lot further and a lot better.
Thanks – Dan

I am a coach of 3rd level, I’ve never been very good at kicking when I played: With your movies I can better learn the different types of football and then, I hope, be able to teach something to my kids (place Kicking) .
Michael Woolley New Zealand
A very good clear insight into your technique and thought process Dan. It will be fairly simple to adapt for a righty. Awesome!!

A really great video from a legendary player but here are a couple of suggestions for how it could have been better, for us at least.
First it would be good if Dan had talked more about what can go wrong, point out a few common mistakes kickers make and demonstrate each with an actual example. The idea is this gives kickers a way to understand their problems during those long practice sessions when the going gets hard.
Secondly it would be awesome for right footed kickers if there could be an ‘inverted’ version of this video – one which is identical to the one already made, but where each frame is swapped left for right. We would then see Dan kicking as if he were a right footed kicker (not the same as him kicking with HIS right foot, you understand). So much is learned by kids from looking at the body movements of the top players and the will and ability to copy them is so great, that I think this would be a real help. Dan wouldn’t then need to talk about ‘mirroring’ – the user can simply select the video that is relevant to them.
Thanks, Gavin and (son) Jack
What if the valves isn’t on the seam?
Tony Cutting New Zealand
Great Video – clear instructions and good useful tips :-)
Jordan Chilver Australia
Great video. Its only a shame Dan Carter plays for New Zealand and not Australia.
Yama Takimoto USA
I was forced into the position of place kicking. I’ve never been able to do it right or figure out the mechanics of it. After watching this, I’m seeing the ball go further with the same amount or less force. I can’t thank you enough for this video. Keep up the amazing work Dan!

Great Video, dan
Thomas Lennon Australia
Great Video, Thanks Dan!

I thought this was a very good and clear explanation of the kicking technique from the master. It would be good to hear from Dan just how much time he thinks young aspiring kickers should be putting in each week and also the extent to which he alters his (aiming) for bad weather conditions and extra long kicks. Overall a very worthwhile purchase.
