Advanced Beach Volleyball Defense: Fake 4 into a 4... WHAT?!?!


We want to show you this juke that happens on this video. Huber ends up running a four which means that he is showing the cross and going to the line, but he does it in a really advanced way.

A lot of people will juke in one direction so that their opponents will think they're running to the line but then they'll just stay in the cross and then they’ll end up having some luck and just hit a nice easy ball into their lap but what Huber does here - because he's playing at such a high level and he knows that the offense can see him and is paying attention to him - is he does a double Juke so he intentionally shows that he's going to the line and then he comes back and sits in this cross for a second which misleads the hitter to think “what a terrible early fake, I'm not going to fall for that. I'm still going to go for the high line” and then Huber runs down to that high line. That's a tough concept to get.

He wanted his opponent to see this bad move to the line, and then a recovery angle. A little bit of double psychology into that play.

We're all trying to play mind games with each other to see if we can bait our opponents into getting blocked or giving us an easy shot. This clip shows a high level defense and super level vision work by Alexander Huber of Austria.

I hope you guys got something out of this. We do a lot more with video analysis and we also do in-person training camps. I hope you come out to one of them in Hermosa Beach California or if you want Mark to analyze your own video, go ahead and contact [email protected] or come out to our camp. We'll see you then until then hope you get better at beach!
