This out of position defensive middie was doomed from the start.

In this scenario, we have a DM who isn't sure where he is on the field.

This could happen out of a slide recovery or during a slow break. Either way, the DM is packed way to far in especially against a middie with a particularly heavy shot.

The initial studder here convinces the DM a longer dodge is going to be required to win the 1v1 match and he braces himself.

This gives the shooter time and room to shoot around the DM.


In this case, using a split or same side split is best because it keeps the dodger's eyes and stick in front. Anything involving a roll will add recovery time for the defender.
