|The Science of Kicking uses applied
anatomy and biomechanical theory to explain every technical
aspect of the punt kick. Included are the drop punt,
the torpedo punt, the checkside punt and the stab punt.
With 120 pages, and more than 100 photographs and diagrams
the ‘what, how, and why’ of this critical skill is explained.
The book includes detailed coaching practises and exercises.
It is written in an easy-to-read format so that every
player and coach at any level can understand the theory
and practice of the punt kick.
‘For more than one hundred years there has
been an absolute dearth of pure and applied information related
to kicking for distance and accuracy in Australian Football.
It was with much joy and interest that I read ‘The Science of
Kicking’, for it fills beautifully the gaping chasm of validated
knowledge available on this critical subject in our great game.
For those learning and coaching this difficult, complex skill,
this book will provide the best possible resource available’.
David Parkin, academic, ABC commentator, former player and AFL coach
