Behind thick clothes, using sturdy long sticks and standing on a wide contact surface for less than 1cm, hockey (hockey) is really a pretty dangerous fighting sport. but it is also full of artistic elements that few sports have.
The game is very elaborate
The first is the technical element. Unlike other fighting sports, hockey requires players to master at least one important skill, skating. Move on a synthetic plastic floor (in Vietnam there is no tape deck) with a special shoe similar to roller skates (no wheels in the sole but instead of a metal cut), skating requires Ask the player to have a special balance. According to the majority of young people who practiced skating, to learn how to stand firm for at least 2-3 training sessions. It is much more time-consuming to move really as you like, depending on your ability.
As an antagonistic sport, hockey involves elements such as bumps, twists, and who has played football, basketball … all know, even when moving on the feet, these elements It also makes it difficult for us to stand firm, not to say it’s moving with skates.
In addition to technical issues, Hockey is also complex in both equipment and competition equipment. It is known that a pair of skating shoes # price at least 1.5 million. Other equipment such as hats, protective clothing, gloves and sticks are also very expensive. This makes it difficult for those who want to own a real kit in this game. Even in the case of having bought enough, being able to wear thick clothes, wearing a bulky hat that restricts vision to practice or not is another matter.
Complex so … fascinating
From the outside, hockey really doesn’t “catch the eye.” In the audience line, only a group of big, bulky players gather around a small piece of disc that is hard to see. The victories did not have any special beauty, all of which showed that this is a boring sport for viewers, but in the player’s posture completely different.
All sports need full body movement, but most of them only focus on technical elements in a single part (foot with football, hand with basketball, table tennis …), Hockey against , requires dexterity in both hands and feet. Although the foot-slip skill is very difficult and requires a lot of practice time, the hand is still the main part of hockey, so of course hockey players have to be “skillful” and “clever.” This complexity is what attracts some youngsters to hockey. A guide at the Youth Cultural House Hockey Club said: “Hockey is really an art sport. It requires us to have harmony in body movement, from the flexibility of the legs, flexible in the arms to the purity of the eyes. The more difficult cases are, the more power needed and a little more clever. ”
