The Hunting Pokey

The Hunting Pokey is a variation on standard return that Iruka learned from Ryoko Tokuno. In volleyball, it's illegal to touch the ball with your fingers. The Pokey technique is used to return a ball past a jumping black over the net. Instead of attempting a risky spike, the pokey taps the ball over the head of the blocker in an arc. However, Iruka added her own twist. By slightly raising her middle and index finger, she gives the ball an added spin to make following the shot nearly impossible.
