My name is Alex. This is Andy. We’re from
Missoula All-Maggots in Missoula, Montana. In this clip, we’re going to show you how
to do a proper tackle on a tackling dummy. This is a great way to practice tackling without
actually involving anyone in the play. In all your practices, all the people you’re
playing with are your own teammates. Getting anybody hurt it is 100% loss for your team.
A great way to get around that is just tackling dummies, such as this. You can really crush
these pads. You’ve got to practice tackling behind the ball. The guy is the ball carrier
so try and practice tackling through this and not from way back here. I am going to
stand to this side holding the dummy like this. Andy is going to judge where my hips
are. They’re roughly the same height. Go through the pad. Nobody is hurt.

    I'm still trying to figure out why a 'maggot' is being called an 'expert.'

    if you're trying to learn please dont watch him. These tackle bags dont help at all, they give 0.00 resistance. You hit a fella like you hit one of these you'll strain your sweet abs. Watch Johnny Wilkinsons rugby school on tackling.

    @chelseafc793
    That's where your wrong. Rugby isn't just a sport in countries like New Zealand and Sounth Africa, it's a passion. The work ethic may be high in America for rugby, but it is not a passion. Players are born and bred in New Zealand. The USA produces superficial rugby players.

    Unfortunate reality of Youtube is the poster can name the vid anything they want, in this case "Advanced". Nothing advanced here. Unfortunately, American ruggers have a warped perspective of how far most of them are from the truly elite levels.
