Russian Stickhandling Technique

How do Russians learn to stickhandle so good? How could I learn this?

Is this Right? http://www.associatedcontent.com/vid...khandling.html

I do not think so but who knows?

I've always stick handled very similar to that. I'm Russian, but I was raised here and nobody taught me how to do it. I think with practice and patience everyone eventually finds what feels best for them - what's most efficient and appropriate for the situation. There's a guy on my team way better than me at stick-handling and he's not Russian, nor does he have a technique like that (I believe, I'll have to look again later)

while the guy started out ok...i think he's exaggerating the technique just a wee bit (by that i mean a hell of ALOT)

its true that you'll see alot more wrist and heel to toe action in alot of russian nhlers' technique, but they still pass over the puck like regular stickhandling. They don't roll it off their blade at all!

its more in the flick of the wrist as you bring the puck back and forth. closing the toe as you move the puck from forehand to backhand keeps the puck alot more centered on your blade than typical stickhandling and allows for more dynamic cuts with the puck. watch kovalev and datsyuk do it and you can see they are CLEARLY passing over the puck...not rolling it off. They just use more wrist action. They point the toe of their blade in the direction they want the puck to go in, which results in a more fluid motion.

It's a beautiful thing to watch

I dunno, thats just a common technique called puck (or in this case ball, I guess) rotation.

Personally, we used to do it in practice all the time.

Pratice and keep your head up.

I use that stickhandling drill as a warm up for my hands sometimes.

I have never seen anyone stick handle that way in ice hockey. after watching that it would be to easy to get the puck off a attacking players stick if he showed me with a puck i think it would look alot dumber than with ball IMO.

Again, it's a practice technique, not really a style of stickhandling.

If you really want to spend a lot of time to be a good stickhandler,
http://skinnerhockey.com/icws222w4/i...BCE594785C047F

I got the series on my computer, crazy stuff. Just doing some of the basic things has made me become a better stickhandler. Unfortunately I don't have the time, patience, or enough access to a rink to master everything on these DVDs. However it is a very in depth step by step teaching technique which starts with the basics and then builds up to more advanced technique. He also shows you how to do more advanced moves and all that. It's a really good buy if you're very serious about becoming a good stickhanlder.

I managed to get it for free, but I won't say how on here .

Russian hockey techniques incorporate every technical aspect. A big part of Kovalev's and Fedorov's techniques comes from the fact they're flawless skaters, have excellent balance and more importantly are supple, if you have any stiffness then you're doing it wrong. That's really the first basic part. After that it's a combination of having the right skating technique, keeping the puck always in front of you and not on the side like a lot of kid and your own creativity for dekes.

Well said!, and practice everyday! Both those players always have the right angle with the puck.
