How to Do the Scissors Soccer Trick

Learn how to do the soccer trick known as the Scissors from soccer coach Deejae Johnson in this Howcast video.


Hi, I'm Deejae Johnson, I'm a soccer coach in San Francisco. I've been around the game since I was three years old. I'm a USSFA-licensed soccer coach, as well as NSCAA advanced national coaching badge, and today I'm going to show you some soccer tricks.

The Scissors move. You want to get some speed so that you're going at the defender. And you take the outside of the foot going from inside to out around the ball and hoping that the defender thinks that you're going that direction. As they get off their foot then you can explode past the defender into the channel that you just created. If I can do it once by a defender, the next time I might be able to come down and do a double scissors. When I go to the right and I go to the left and then I explode past the defender they don't really know when I'm going past them. You can even do a triple scissors and if you're a Brazilian you can do four, five or six scissors.
