Hi, I’m Chris Murray, and I’m going to demonstrate
to you,on how to do a bicycle kick in soccer. In soccer, there are many times when the ball
is up in the air, and you have to get it down, or try to shoot it first time, out of the
air. By shooting the ball first time out of the air, offers some kind of a surprise to
the goalkeeper. Often at times, the ball is so high, that it’s above your head, causing
you to use some kind of acrobatic move, to get up in the air, and to strike the ball
at the goal. This is where the bicycle kick comes into play. The bicycle kick is done
when the ball is above your head, and you can’t reach it, or jumped to head it. Doing
the bicycle kick is very difficult at times, because you have to get the timing just right.
The bicycle kick is done by throwing your leg that’s not going to be striking the ball,
up in the air, to get your bodies momentum going up towards the ball, and bringing your
other foot through, to strike the ball, when it’s just at the right position, in the air.
Again, first you throw your one leg, your nonstriking foot up in the air, to get your
bodies momentum going, and at the same time you bring your kicking foot through to meet
the ball, at the right position, and that’s just how you do a bicycle kick.
