Recordbreaking football juggling- How to improve your football skills

Four of my blogs at the top of the search engine (80,000 articles) (Click to enlarge)

Picture taken from Stomp- S'pore Press Holdings. In an email interview: (comments and answers below)


The executive producer of Singapore Broadcasting Corp (now Mediacorp) verified in writing what she had seen and filmed, the full ranges of my football-jugging feats and the bike stunts which was featured in the World of Sports segment, (Singapore Broadcasting Corporation), presently Mediacorp together with the videocamera crew in (CLICK TO ENLARGE)

had juggled a standard football, using my head, shoulders, back, heels, insteps, outsteps & kneels except my hands, more than 3,400 times in one hour and 20 minutes, without letting it dropped .

This record was juggled in different patterns like criss-cross jumping to kick the ball with his insteps, criss-cross the heels juggling the ball, kicking the ball to behind my neck and back heeled it back in front and other patterns etc.
At that time groups of hundreds of students Woodsville Secondary Schools kept cheering me on. At that time in about 1 pm time, there were hundreds of students coming to school and going backs home.

On the other side of the field is Woodsville Primary School.

This record breaking feat were done in 1986 at Woodsville Secondary School few months, after my feats were featured in the TV.

What made me attempt such feats was after reading the book "The Will to Win" the story of P. Nurmi the greatest long distance runner, who overcome incredible odds to achieve his records, training 6 and half hours a day.
I was also inspired by the South Korean football jugglers.
A serious injuries during a football match, had made mr concentrated on ball-juggling to break the world record.
I didn't had a coach, what made me able to master such fantastic skill with my feet, was that every morning during my secondary school days, I needed to ride a tricycle with full loads of foods, my bike and my mother sitting behind, from his home to the hawker centre through and forth some distance away, everyday 365 days a year, for many years.

After unloading the foods I got to rush to school with my bike, rain or shine even the tyres were flat. Those years of tough training had made it possible for me to accomplish such amazing feat.

The secrets of me able to perform all those difficult ball juggling tricks with my heels, is that I used to tie strings to the football and juggled it hours and hours.

In this way you can improve and master the football skills faster and easier.

This creative solutions which made it much easier to practice with his heels or outsteps, which were more difficult to perform.

The method is to tied three special strings to the football , the strings which were elastic were used hi fixed to fixtures on the wall, whenever I used my heels to kick the ball it return back to the same position.

In this way I didn't needed to waste time kept picking up the ball.

Did I broke any sorts of world record? Hope that the Woodsvilles Secondary Schools students saw this article come forward and verify to it.

At that time of the incredible record breaking feat, Eric Yeo who oftens trained together with me, was around there together with hundreds of Woodsville Secondary School students kept cheering me on.

Frankly speaking I got more serious injuries, when I ride normally then when I doing more difficult feats. I had never been injured seriously in my bike stunts, all my stunts need high skills and years to perfect it, my aim is to reach the highest skill, not the daredevil type.

When I want to do difficult feats, I will maintain my bike to the best condition.

I got more and serious injuries playing football than doing cycling feats

I am happy, four of my blogs among the top of the search words ''Football juggling feat' & 'Cycling feat'
I hope that the former Woodsville Secondary School students who saw my article can verify it.
