A favourite technique of defensive players
, particularly those from Eastern Europe, huffing
is simply the tactic of reversing the direction of play of a player. In more detail, the player shunts
the victim into an adjacent but blocked
station, causing the recipient of the shunt to 'bounce' back to his previous location, but to be facing in the opposite direction. Whilst sounding very minor, this can completely ruin a well built-up combination of moves, and as such it is a very effective form of defense against many attacking tactics.
