Rock In Rock Out

One of the hardest things to do while throwing discs is to relax.

Try this

Catch Low and put a backhand grip on the disc. Loosen the grip as much as possible while still maintaining control over the disc. It might be a little claw-like at the beginning, that’s OK. The disc should be totally drooping down. The idea is that the inertia of the moving hand lifts the disc, as droopy, loosely held things do when they are pulled quickly.

Rockin’ In

Moving from the throwing hand side to the off hand side is Rockin’ In. As you Rock In, the edge of the disc away from the hand will move a bit slower than the part that is in the hand because the grip is not maintaining the angle of the disc at all. The movement of the hand as you rock in is what will lift the wing and set the angle of the disc.

Rockin’ Out

Once all the way over to the left, there is no more Rockin’ In. You will be all coiled up. Just relax and let your body start to Rock Out – shifting the weight and turning back towards the throwing hand. This reversal of direction with the droopy, loosely held disc will pop the trailing edge of the disc up to a horizontal position. Continue Rockin’ Out until the disc is in position to be released towards the target.

If you stay loose and that disc remains droopy, you will wind up with the same pleasant surprise that Judy got at the end of the video.
