Here's the essential elements, with no previous experience required – just guidelines and practice.

An oval for the head, then lines indicating the spine, shoulders, hips, arms and legs.

By following the step by step progressions you will discover how the figure develops into the final stage.

Even those picking up a pencil for the first time will be able to draw a figure and perform a skill they never realised they had.


Watch how Messi when in possession and moving at top speed employs a much shorter stride than when racing to receive the ball.

The short stride that Messi employs when dribbling at speed affords him perfect balance.

That allows him to move straight at the defender committing him to tackle and tackle fast reducing the defender’s margin of error by forcing him to react quickly in this way.
