    Which is your good foot?

    Good foot: The foot you have forward, right?
    Vote here and, if possible, post if you're left/right handed. I think my good foot is my left because my right is quite duck-footed. As for if I'm right handed or a lefty, you decide:
    I write with my right.
    I hold knife in my left hand, fork in the right.
    I kick a football with my right foot.
    I throw a ball with my left.
    etc... etc...

    Haha @ instincts.

    I ride right foot forward, write with right hand, throw with right (I can't throw for crap with left), kick with either.

    I'm right handed, start out with my right foot providing power, but when I had my spin looked at by an instructor I was told that my left leg was my strong leg.

    Could just be a natural coordination thing.

    I too play soccer a lot but never realy learned to use both of my feet well. I play soccer, along with every other sport, right footed or handed, depending on the sport. Soccer is the reason I also have a much larger right thigh, 7 cm bigger around to be exact. The only exception is arm-wrestling in which case i have a much higher win percentage left handed (figure that one out). Free Pizza, how far can you kick a soccer ball, and how old are you? I'm 15 and my best 6-yarder went a little farther than half-feild, dont have a clue about the speed though.

    When I was a kid I was in a sports camp and the soccer coach tested our best foot by having us stand with our feet against each other. He then stood behind us and shoved. The foot you put forward first to stabilize yourself is your stronger foot/leg.

    Edit:
    Forgot to add my stats.
    Best foot - right
    Right handed
    I shoot hockey left-handed.

    My track coach did that for high/long jump to find out which foot we should jump off of. I find that little trick works so much better when they dont expect it, otherwise many people purposely put one foot down over the other.

    Yeah, I should have added that. You should tell someone to wait for you to be distracted and just standing there and to shove you in the back.

    i play forward so i never really have the chance to kick the ball a long ways, but i have caught the keeper off his line a few times and have scored from before the half way line with relative ease.. so if i really wanted to thump it im sure i could i could go 3/4's of the field... 2 months out of back surgery so it'll be a while before i can give you a definate answer... as for getting the speed of my shot measured, i got it done at a soccer tournament in town here, had a skills competition dealey, got 100 bucks for winning with a 111km/h shot 2 years ago, and last year was beaten with a 124km/h shot when mine was 121km/h..

    oh yeah, and im 23 but havent played any sports since november due to back troubles, and even since last july have been limited to what i could do...

    Hey Raiyn, do they not sell left/right handed sticks down there in florida?! just the ol' straight blades? or was this when you were playing mini-sticks in the basement?
