In this first video with Senda he teaches how to do a key futsal dribble to go around defenders with very little space.
Here is Matheus showing you how to perform and practice this move, step by step:
A proper futsal dribble requires you to use the sole of your foot to effectively control and move the ball. Doing this ensures tight & precise control on a fast & limited playing space surface as a futsal court. Having proper control of the ball while performing a futsal dribble is vital to having success on the court. This is also really beneficial once players move onto an outdoor field.
A quick and explosive futsal dribble is key for you to beat your defender. This futsal dribble, if performed correctly, can help you trick defenders effectively almost every time. The next step is to get your Senda futsal ball, available on our website, and start practicing this move!
