Sliding 101

Well, since there have been a lot of threads asking how to slide and dive properly, I thought I'd copy this from my friend Deimus85's thread on PbN.

Welcome boys and girls to the 1st annual Team Strange Sllding School, or T.S.S.S. for short. Here players of all shapes and sizes will learn the basic strategies of properly sliding into a bunker from none other than the NXL's own Team Strange!!! Now pay attention class, the lesson is starting.



Look at that setup!!! He is committed to his slide and knows at this point what is going on. He is previsualizing the slide in his head and makes proper adjustments of his body to prepare him for impact.



Impact!! Note the free hand giving him that support and extra boost to propel him foward, while the shooting hand is keeping that gun safe by putting it high into the air. Remember boys and girls, you always want to keep your thousand dollar markers safe so that when you make that huge bolt to the 50 you have a gun that can fire when you get up. Also take note of his legs getting into the proper foward hip slide position, which will give him the extra length to take him all the way to the snake!



The final step is crucial. Remember to still keep that gun up during sliding, so that you can get it up quick to start firing massive ropes at the opposition. Slide as far as you can into your bunker before getting up, and stay as low as possible!

If you remember these 3 simple steps to sliding, you can be a winner too, just like Team Strange!!!

A slide is a controlled fall

Something I'm very good at

There's a few a friend of mine made. It's muddy, none the less, but that's a good add on to this tutorial.

And notice that he's not sliding in there on his knees....saving his joints lots of surgery later.

Yes kiddies, remember, a torn miniscus is not fun. Make sure to have padded knees, or don't land on them at all. Also try to avoid jumping over stuff on the field; this will mess up your knees as well if you don't land right (which, I might add, takes time that you normally don't have in a PB game).

Haha, that kid in the vid reminds me a of a kid on my hockey team. Good job STO, very informative.

As for sliding on your knees, it can work in certain situations. Though you need proper padding.

Frankly, unless the prize can pay the medical bill and still have some left over, take the elim. You only get one set of knees that work perfectly .

I slide on my knees all the time. Though gravel or rocky surfaces would suck.

Sliding on your knees is a good way to injure yourself long term. Even with padding it's a very bad idea. The padding only cuts down on the superficial injuries that could occur (bruising, cuts) effectively shielding your knee/bones from the elements. It doesn't shield your ligaments, tendons, cartilidge or meniscus at all. Those are easily torn with an awkward movement in the wrong direction or at a bad angle ... which increases with odd slides on your knees.

Listen to the man! I tore my meniscus while skating...and I didn't land on my knees either. All it takes is a little stress, then *POW*, One wrong move, even by a fraction of an inch, and you can tear something in your knee. Remember, you are supporting most of your body weight on your knees.

Tearing your meniscus would usually take a ripping motion. Unless you did a very akward slide, I can't see it being a major problem.
