3 steps rule in handball

When an opponent player hold me can I move more than 3 steps without dribbling the ball? Please help me I'm training and this affects my training!!

According to the rules: no

(13:1a); take a maximum of 3 steps with the ball (13:1a); one step is considered taken when:

a player who is standing with both feet on the floor lifts one foot and puts it down again, or moves one foot from one place to another.

a player is touching the floor with one foot only, catches the ball and then touches the floor with the other foot.

a player after a jump touches the floor with one foot only, and then hops on the same foot or touches the floor with the other foot.

Comment:
If one foot is moved from one place to another and the other foot is dragged behind, only one step is considered taken.

It is in conformance with the rules, if a player with the ball falls to the floor, slides and then stands up and plays the ball. This is also the case, if a player dives for the ball, controls it and stands up to play it.
