Tackle is one of the more difficult techniques in football technology to learn, and it has a wide range of applications in high-level football players. This article analyzes the principle, classification, and usage scenarios of tackles through literature method, interview method, and case analysis, and draws the following conclusions: 1. The tackle technique is a sequential and sporty open skill, which is unstable. Sex, complexity and difficulty. 2. The number of tackles and the success rate are the highest in the backcourt, followed by midfields and the lowest in the frontcourt. The reason is that tackles are mostly defensive tackles in the game, and the backcourt is the area where defensive tasks are the most important. 3. It is reasonable to classify the offensive and defensive attributes of tackles by area.
