The 3 common dodges are Split, spin, and bull dodge,

the Split::: Run at defender 2 steps away take a step to his right (throw your body into it) and quickly step back to left and run around left side. This dodge is hard to explain but works very well.

Spin Dodge::: run at defender 3/4 speed...run put you pivot foot (right foot) near or inbetween his legs....pivot to the right and spin around his right side... sometimes hard to get right but once u get the hang of it its a great dodge.

Bull Dodge:::cradle close to your body put your shoulder down and push through and around your defender. simple dodge to ler\arn and effective if you are bigger than your deffender.

There is also the Swim dodge......but i will save that for another day. the swim is fun to do but sometimes not very effective....and some time you may be laughed at LOL i have been on a few occasions using this doge but it CAN and WILL work.
