- A great DVD to study the refereeing aspect, game strategy & techniques!


50 minute DVD, the first half which shows Brazil's very soccer style of play as they face Korea in a full match of Doubles Sepak Takraw, an event that is growing in popularity world-wide. This two-on-two game shares the same court size and most of the same rules as Regu Sepak Takraw (playing 3-on-3), except that serving is done outside the court with the server tossing the ball up to him/herself and one person cannot serve twice in a row - the pairs must take turns serving throughout the match.

The second have shows Thailand's relaxed control as they kick takraw balls into hoops hung 15 1/2 feet in the air. Hoop Sepak Takraw is a traditional game from Thailand that dates back hundreds of years, and it is an excellent game for teaching "setting" skills in Sepak Takraw. The object of the game is basically for a team of 5 players, standing beneath the hoops in a wide circle, to pass the ball around to each other and kick it into the hoops (with inside kicks, outside kicks, knee bumps, headers, shoulder shots and blind kicks) as many times as they can within the given time frame. Each time the ball goes into a hoop, points are awarded. Higher points are awarded for successful hoops with more difficult kicks. You'll be amazed at the control displayed!


40 minute DVD, includes: - Short background information and footage of Malaysia, one of the originating countries, and Saskatchewan's centennial celebrations; 

- National championship final, full match between eastern and western junior boy's teams ... very exciting, and played at a level that will motivate other student viewers - they will realize that THEY could easily play this sport too (it really is not as hard as they might have expected);  
- ANOTHER MUST BUY DVD, especially for schools, colleges, universities or recreations centres!


- Brilliant full color, 19" X 28", glossy finish.  
- Excellent motivational teaching tool.  
- Shows each of the 5 basic kicks in being executed. 
- Shows beginner net action and progresses to the pros. 
- Lastly, a perfect sequence of shots nicely shows how a roll spike is methodically executed from kick to landing 
... and yes they do land on their feet! 
- Note that from the pictures it is obvious that Sepak Takraw can be played indoors and outdoors, 
- Also note that anybody can play Sepak Takraw; young, old, male, female, short or tall ... it doesn't matter.
