Last Saturday was the 2014 Chinese Taipei Touch Tournament. One of the players, playing for Taipei’s Team Hukit, was Hide Nara. Hide is a member of the Japan national team, and is currently living the dream – traveling the world playing touch.
Having Hide (or Hitch, as he is also known) at the tournament was a huge boost to Touch in Taiwan. Not only did he wow us with his skills and steps, but Hitch was also selfless in sharing his knowledge of the game with anyone who asked. When he wasn’t playing or refereeing, Hitch could be seen teaching plays to team mates, helping others improve their passing and catching skills, or simply pass on small little pointers that certainly helped to boost the level of everyone’s game.
Check out these videos of some future Chinese Taipei Touchers going through some drills. Touch is a game for all ages!
