Course reviews

Part 3 is too short. Should add something more.


Why so fast?


It’s difficult to understand him in part 3.


good a simple explanation. good to complement with ben herring´s evasion series (add fend when drilling)


Good simple drill but very effective


Would have thought a far better drill would have been to push that pad while dragging the rugby ball under control.


Very efficient drill!


great simple drill, I like the use of differing balls to develop the skill


Excellent simple drill
