  • Slowly increase the speed of the volley rally to see how fast you can keep it going


Block vs Counter Attack


  • Relaxed like a summer breeze

  • Use when it favors you

    • Are you in trouble?

    • Are you losing all the hand battles?

    • Are you trying to slow them down?

    • Are you jammed up?


  • Accelerate through the ball

  • Expect it to come back EVERY TIME

  • Use when you are balanced and ready to keep fighting
