Shift weight pressure rather than mass.

I was traveling and did not have good opportunities for field practices last weekend. Today I did some field shots and also tried the elephant walk drill. The video has bad lighting and a bad camera angle, but because the battery was about to die, I have only this take. Tomorrow more.



Also, I tried to pay attention to transferring the pressure rather than mass. When dry running in the living room, it felt quite reasonable and understandable, but difficult to incorporate into the game when playing. I try to get some standstill shots on video tomorrow.

your elephant walk is all arm swing. Gotta feel the momentum of your shoulders turning the pendulum.

Yeah, I can see that. Actually noticed that when watching the video on the field right after filming and sort of tried to fix it, but I do not have any footage after that.

Yeah, you look way too cautious and deliberate. Need to swing with some reckless abandonment. Pretend your shoulder is a battering ram going thru a door and really get some heavy momentum on your swing. Enough swing momentum to pull your trailing leg into the next step on each swing back and forth.

Thanks again.

I did some more today. Here are two elephant walk drill shots:



My lower back has been quite stiff, probably because of sleeping on an inflatable mattress and driving a cheap Japanese car a lot in recent days. It might limit my range of movement.

What should be the width of the stance and length of a step?

I also did some one step run up throws, here is one:



It looks like the weightshift is far from good and the idea about shifting the pressure rather than the center of gravity is also missing. I cannot say about hugging myself / rounding from this vantage point, but I think it is still there, at least whenever I do not specifically think about it.

The accuracy/consistency of the shots has improved, but I do not know if it is a better form or just practice in general, as far as these are distinguishable.

E-Walk - much better shoulder swing there, but a little too quick from the top down, need to let gravity do the work to start down and then give it some juice and accelerate forward or backward as you near the bottom of the pendulum.

1 step - you are leaning back past your rear foot at the start - so your front foot steps out forward and head goes back, instead of shifting/drifting your hips/CoG forward first. Front leg in the stride should be fairly passive/dingle leg and swung and put down by the rear leg.
