The most fundamental throw in ultimate is the backhand. It’s important to learn the mechanics of the throw (grip, wrist snap, body movement) before spending a lot of time on the technique. If you don’t develop the proper mechanics when you first learn to throw a backhand, then you will have trouble later on learning to pull and huck since being able to throw a disc long requires solid mechanics.
