4. Chaos Step Progressions

The Chaos step is a defence splitting side step that enables you to create a lot of distance between you and the defender by putting your body in a very powerful position.


Most players have never been shown how to side step. They are just expected to know how to do it automatically but there are a lot of things that can go wrong. I won’t go into detail about the technique needed here, but if you want to know more, you can learn all about it from my blog post – click here

We teach the Chaos step in a very progressive way that goes from static to dynamic and slow to fast repetitions with plenty of games thrown in such as ‘the tunnel of doom’. This format enables all players to understand why the technique is important, progress at their own rate and enjoy learning and applying agility techniques to rugby.

Once the Chaos step has been mastered and understood, this opens the floodgates to all the different varieties of side stepping that can be added to the players ‘toolbox’.
