The Flick Myth in Disc Sports
there is no Flick.
There is no wrist Flick in Frisbee. At least not in the way most people understand the of flicking the wrist. The Flick in Frisbee comes not from the wrist, but from the stopping of the arm. All the wrist does is to stay loose. We get our arm moving and stop it quickly and if our wrist is loose, it Flicks. That’s it.
Accentuating the Flick
If we want a strong flick, we’ll get the arm going towards the target stop it quickly and pull back, away from the target, keeping that wrist loose. This can also be looked at as stopping the arm harder, but it quite literally is pulling sharply away from the target as we stop our arm.
