What does 'タメを作る' mean?
What exactly is being 'made/created'?
What is a 'タメ'(as I understand, is being used as a noun here)?
I see the phrase frequently being used in the context of sport, such as
'スイング中タメを作る方法' (how to create a タメ during your swing?) or
'タメを作るエクササイズ' (exercises for creating a タメ?)
is this phrase strictly a sports term or is it also used in non sports contexts?
I found a post on japanese yahoo answers where a person asks the exact same question in the context of soccer.(http://detail.chiebukuro.yahoo.co.jp/qa/question_detail/q1353818073) The OP thinks it means '味方の上がりを待つこと？', and people are saying that's mostly correct. However this leaves me even more confused. 'Waiting for your allies to advance'? I'm perplexed.
