Leaning

To be able to lean effectively over a shot the defender needs to have control over holding the lean.Leaning-1

The following are the steps to an effective leaning technique:

  1. Once possession is with the shooter the defender needs to quickly estimate the distance of 0.9 of a metre to defend the shot.
  2. Distance should be accurate before the arm goes up for the lean position.  This should be practiced regularly to get the timing right.
