Defense: Hasami: Guarding the Give and Go
- Part of a membership
This article covers the concept of Hasami guarding in ultimate frisbee. Hasami guarding is used to defend against a "give and go" attack, where one player passes the frisbee then immediately runs towards the spot the frisbee was thrown to, as if to receive the frisbee back. Hasami guarding entails the defender getting in the gap between the two players, creating a triangle between them. This is done in order to prevent the thrower from getting an open pass, while also forcing the cuter to change their path or stop their cut. The article explains in depth how to properly execute Hasami guarding, including tips such as where to position your body, how to adjust as needed, and when to use it.
