Great video on blocking and how you can overcome  the opponent with good blocking stance and technique.

Notice leverage, base, footwork (LOAD EXPLODE GO).

Great video on tackling (JJ posted this on youtube so Thanks JJ!)

It shows a great BITE THE PIT tackle and it shows a bad spearing tackle and walks you through the science.

Great video showing a LB reacting to the QB RELEASE KEY and playing pass.  Also shows the LB reacting to the RUN KEY (really bad tackle though).

Pause that video at 3:18. His head is down. That is not a great example of bit the pit or even a safe tackle. At high speeds if that is a player and not a dummy and the tacklers aim is off by just an inch or two, he is not only spearing but putting himself at risk.

This is the problem with all of this..that is a good tackle...   Notice the location of the head in relationship of the body...it moves into the arm pit which is the safest loction for the head to be as contact is made.  It is absolutely safe as he is not in any danger of causing arm to himself or the other player...  His head moves to the side and under the arm pit...is it perfect no it is not but he is safe because his head fits right to the side of the body into the soft area of the player (under the arm pit).  If you take a 100 tackles from a good tackler you might get five 100% perfect tackles in a real world environment.  His eyes drop just as contact is being made...as i stated in a other thread if people really want to know what is safe they need to start researching the NMS reflex/reaction that the body does to protect itself...   I would have liked to see him place his eyes up into the arm pit but you are not going get perfect all the time.  You need to watch a lot of grappling contests like MMA, JUDO, WRESTLING and watch how the body naturally fits the head into full on contact.  It fits under the arm pit and to the side of the ribcage...it is a natural rection to proteting the head...  Having the HEAD UP and ALIGN with the opponent is not natural nor is it safe.

Pause above at 4:34.   

Now watch this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WopJ2e-XzlA#!

Pause at 3:39.

Same block.   Both great pros.    Two slightly different methods.   I have done both and taught both.  Both are effective.   I mostly used the first one as a player.

Second is obviously better for the head which is of great concern these days.    First is probably better method for moving a truck because truck has 4 wheels and all 4 are on the ground in that test.   If the truck wasn't so heavy and it could have been lifted in the front off the ground it would have been a different story.

If the truck had 4 cleats on instead of wheels it wasn't going anywhere.

Human beings have 2 legs and are easier to move when stood up.

1st progression on the drive block is our LOAD/EXPLODE/GO as we teach it.

The techniques are similar.   

The difference between the two videos and techniques is in the amount you explode out extending your legs before you try to get your legs underneath your hips in power lifting position.

You can fire out and run your legs under your hips like Marvel did (we can't really see Joe) or you can keep your legs underneath your hips the whole time like Mark did remaining in the power lifting position.

There are advantages to both techniques.   The explode out technique has more initial violence and carries focused body weight into an opponent (like diving through a door rather than setting up and punching it).    The controlled technique gives you more upward power to redirect and is much more balanced.

Keep in mind in the first truck pushing video they told them it was fourth and goal from the 1, a sustained block is not the goal in that situation.     

I prefer the explode out technique more for defense and the controlled technique more for offense.   If we both explode out all day we are going to have sore heads.

The big mistake a lot of people make with the first tech is they never try to get their legs back under their hips.   They stay extended and push, defender will shuck you after a few seconds (or less) if you do that.

I don't think I'd characterize one as explosive and the other as controlled.

I think one explodes horizontally and controls vertical motion and the other explodes vertically and controls horizontal motion.
