Brushing discs, aka – MAC (Mid Air Correction), is actually quite a bit easier than most people think. They can be a bit hard to wrap your head around, but with a little bit of knowledge and a good serve, they’re really pretty easy.
You can also use this swooping kind of entry to do the Push Airbounce going backwards, as in the build up to the Jazz Throw.
Success is contagious and habit forming. Failure is contagious and habit forming. Which one do you do more of in your throwing practice?
Ron Watson teaches the freestyle flying disc throw, the Flamingo. The Flamingo is a flashy, under the leg throw with a twist.
The Flamingitis throw is pretty spiffy. It’s clean, sharp and really pops. It’s also pretty simple. It’s similar in position to the Flamingo, but a bit more direct.
The cointoss butterfly is a very cool, very reliable butterfly that rotates 90 degrees – or sideways in relation to the handler., making for a really nice toss for passing skills and for Vaults and Overs. It also works quite well for flipping with many styles of dog.
One of the hardest things to do while throwing discs is to relax. It is surprising how tense your arm and wrist are even when you think you are being relaxed.
Many great throwers do this so naturally that it looks as if they must have magical Wristbands of Hercules or something. Now a huge portion of that Flick Myth is hiding right in plain sight.
We are going to backchain this skill. You’ll start with a very simple, rough approximation of the finish product – a blind backwards release – and then you will increase the challenge to get to that finish criteria.
The key to throwing the Airbounce is to have a perfectly clean release at the simplest expression of the throw. If you can’t perform the throw at it’s essence, how in the world are you going to master it and be able to master it when the power, speed and physics of a serious Airbounce multiply the difficulty?
Body Rolls with discs really are easy. All it takes is a little bit of knowledge and a tiny tap from the tips of your fingers to start the disc racing across your body.

Efficient and competent disc management is more than just racing around picking discs up off the ground.
