Extractions: "...soccer, volleyball and gymnastics played in one." I love sport. I love to watch track and field, boxing, and swimming. I play Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, and Gymnastic but sometimes it's boring. What about playing gymnastic, volleyball, and soccer played in one, cool isn't it? You can play it all by playing Sepak takraw. I played it well during my high school. Sepak takraw is originated and a popular ballgame in South East Asia. It is one of the sports has medal at stake on South East Asian Games and Asian Games. A very interesting game and you can see a lot of gymnastics exhibitions more than what Michael Jordan do on the hoops. Takraw ball is made of rattan or very hard plastic weighed approximately 250 grams. Ruling and point system is almost similar to volleyball. You can use head, body, legs and anywhere for volleying and smashing the ball except that the player can't touch with his hand. Facility is not expensive, so you can start right now. Photos of smashing and blocking. Cool, isn't it? Some players used their head to block the ball and I experienced hitting to the head. Also you can invent how to smash the ball like runs up to the net, jump, float in the air, flip upside down while spinning like a helicopter, kick the ball more or less 60 miles per hour. Warning! don't do this while you are still new. Point sytem and ruling.

This skill ball game, originated in Asia, today has become an alternative sport, which is quite popular all over the world. History in brief. So the history of this sport movement is as following... I think it's not a surprise for you that every nation has her proud myriad of cultures, arts, literature and traditional sports. It is recorded in the cultures of South-East Asia nations as early as in the 11th century that the game was played extensively - Takraw in Thailand, Sipa in the Philippines, Sepakraga in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, Ching Loong in Myanmar, Rago in Indonesia and Kator in Laos. It is also recorded that in one of his many trips, the merchant Marco Polo brought back to Europe a game from China which was kicking an implement into the air and counting the number of kicks, a style resembling today's sepak takraw game. Sepak takraw is a skill ball game, which requires the use of the feet and head to keep the ball in the air in a targeted direction. Traditionally, villagers stand in a circle and display keen understanding and teamwork to help one another keep the ball in the air for as long as possible. It provided villagers of all ages with fun, recreation and a sense of shared community. This was the traditional circle game, evolved from many forms of kicking game. Today, the circle game is still popular throughout South-East Asia and has taken a hold as a form of recreational "sport for all".

Do you know Sepak Takraw? Sepal Takraw was created by the royal family of Malaysia about 500 years ago. The name itself comes from two languages. Sepak is "kick" in Malay, and Takraw is the "ball" in Thai. When it is born, It looked like Japanese "Kemari", and some became a circle, and a pole was kicked, and the number of times was being competed in. It looks very similar to the Japanese traditional game, "kemari" where the players form a loose circle and the number of times the ball is kicked before it touches the ground is counted. In 1965 the game was unified into the present volleyball style with the addition of a net and the adoption of international rules. The court and the net height and size are identical to those used in badminton and each team has three players. The rules are very similar to those in volleyball , with the following five important exceptions The use of hands is not permitted.

Volleyball Sepak Takraw : Asian Sport Sarah Dion-Marquis Jun 26, 2007 Sepak Takraw is widely popular in most of Asia, where sepak takraw courts are as common in parks as hockey and soccer fields in Canada. The sport that originated in Malaysia and Thailand is catching on in the rest of the world. For Rick Engel, the president of the Sepak Takraw Association of Canada (STAC), sepak takraw is one of the most exciting spectator sports on the planet. "It is just so incredible to watch," said Engel. The Asian game is best described as soccer-volleyball on a badminton court. It incorporates the precision of badminton, the speed of volleyball and the kicks of soccer. The three players on each side of the net can use anything but their hands and arms to pike the unique hand-woven ball into the opponent's court. What is addicting for players is the motivation to improve their ball handling skills. For skilled players, it means to be able to break their own record of consecutive kicks, to kick the ball in different ways with both feet, to "kick hoops", to jump up and spike the ball and to anticipate where the ball will be coming over.

Extractions: Wechseln zu: Navigation Suche Sepak-Takraw-Ball aus Kunststoff Sepak Takraw ist eine Ballsportart, die seit ¼ber 500 Jahren in S¼dostasien gespielt wird. Es wird vermutet, dass es eine Abwandlung des chinesischen Federfuball ist. W¤hrend beim Federfuball der "Ball" ein Gummifu mit einer Feder daran ist, wird dieses Spiel mit einem geflochtenen, also nicht mit Luft aufgepumpten, Ball gespielt. Daher auch der Name: â Tritt den Korb Varianten ... Sepak Takraw ist eine Ballsportart, die geradezu artistisches K¶nnen erfordert. Sie ist sehr spektakul¤r und erfordert viel bung und Kondition. Der Ball darf im Grunde mit allen K¶rperteilen â auer mit den H¤nden â gespielt werden. Ein Spieler kann somit seinen Kopf, die Schultern, Ellenbogen, Knie und F¼e einsetzen. Zumeist werden allerdings die F¼e benutzt. Artistische Kunstst¼cke wie Saltos, Scherenschl¤ge, Fallr¼ckzieher und spektakul¤re Spr¼nge reihen sich in schneller Folge aneinander. Der Ball kann dabei eine Spitzengeschwindigkeit von ca. 120 km/h erreichen. Traditionell wird im Kreis mit einem aus Rattan geflochtenen Ball gespielt, der einen Durchmesser von ca. 15 cm und etwa 250 g Gewicht hat. Heutzutage sind die B¤lle meistens aus Kunststoffgeflecht.
