This study aims to test the differences in the effect of the three drilling methods; Solo drill, Pairs drill, and Mixed drill, towards smash Kedeng skills (scissors) in sepak takraw (foot-volleyball) games and to find out which method is most recommended. By taking 60 samples divided into 3 groups, each consisting of 20 students, we conducted a post-test only design experiment to see the effect of the three drilling methods on smash Kedeng skills. Analysis of variance (ANAVA) with the Tukey test became a data analysis technique with a significance level of α = .05 to determine the difference in the effect of the three drilling methods on smash Kedeng skills. The results revealed that there are differences in the effect of the Solo drill method and the Pairs drill method on smash Kedeng skills and this condition was the same as the difference in effect between the Pairs drill method and Mixed drill method on smash Kedeng skills. On the other hand, there was no difference between the Solo drill method and the Mixed drill method for the smash Kedeng skills. The Tuckey test results showed that among the three drilling methods, the Solo drill and Mixed drill method were the most recommended. The implications of the different influences between the three variables and the two recommended methods are also discussed.
