Soccer Hook Turn
(aka "Cut" or "Cutback"). A technique for reversing direction by using the inside or outside of the foot to "cut", "chop" or "hook" the ball. This is done by turning the foot and pulling the toes up so the laces can hook or chop the ball & cause it reverse direction. Keep in mind that people in different parts of the world use different terms. This can be confusing, and sometimes people use terms for similar but slightly different things. For example, some people use the term "hook" to mean using the inside or outside of the foot to reverse the direction of the ball (a 180 degree turn), and might use the term "cut" to mean using the inside or outside of the foot to chop the ball so it goes to the left or right (a 90 degree turn). (See "Outside-of-Foot Reverse" game and "Outside-of-Foot").
