In the associated discussion a kind of technique how to execute a 6.5 m could not find a majority.

" ... After the Referee’s whistle the goalkeeper must ride the unicycle freely and not rest on the goal. The 6.5 m is direct. The player executing the 6.5 m may only touch the ball once. If no goal is scored, ..."
In the discussion it was outlined that in contrast to a free shot a 6.5 m is direct. I added this to the proposed text as an additional clarification because it is missing in the rules.
