    Just do drills with at least one other person applying light pressure (Chasing you, very light tackling) and go from there.

    also practise being quick hand to foot. Throw the ball out in front try to gather at speed and release the ball, control the kick to a target.

    Kicking under pressure all starts with first gathering the ball. Maybe work on the one had pickup. A quicker pick up will give you more time to release the footy. Also learn how to kick on both feet, The pressure wont be as great if you can dispose of the footy on both feet. I think the only real thing you can do is have live drills, pressure being applied in as many situations as possible. Practice makes perfect

    Practice getting hit, then you won't feel as much pressure, because you know you won't be hurt too badly.
