A good pull is like having an 8th defender on the field. The goal is to get the disc as far down the field with as much hang time as possible, to give the pulling team time to run down the field, and get the receiving time starting off as far away from their end-zone as possible.

Carry around a frisbee while you walk from class to class or while sitting and watching TV and just mess around with it.
Video games have been a part of our daily lives for quite some time. The first ever video game was created in 1958 by William Higinbotham and then was popularized by Pong in the 70s. Since then we have seen the evolution from Atari, Nintendo, Sega, Playstation, and computer games to mega online games such as fortnight and League of Legends.

I retired from playing and competing in all disc sports exactly thirty years ago. Playing since the 1960s, injuries and my age over a twenty-year career said it was time to move on. Changing all the activities in my life, I lost all contact with Frisbee players and disc sports.
As some of you may know, I am very big fan of acronyms. Today’s; ABM, always be moving, both on D and on O. This serves three purposes.
This is a great drill/game to work on your quick release, catching, throwing, disc awareness, eye/hand coordination, and timing of your throwing & catching.
This trick shot video was filmed in Ra’anana Park, Israel featuring Yarden, Semo, and Avner on behalf of Fresh Ultimate. Ra’anana Park is a beautiful park with lots of open grassy spaces, climbing structures, a train that brings guests all throughout the park, and multiple courts for sports such as basketball, soccer, hockey, and skateboarding.
When throwing on the green or when warming up make sure to catch “both ways.” Alternate catching with your right hand versus your left hand on top of the pancake. For good throws, this doesn’t make much of a difference, but if an errant throw is to the right of your body, it will be easier to catch left on top, and the same goes for the other side, but switched. The more comfortable you are catching both ways, the more natural it will be for you to catch with the correct orientation. I guarantee your drops will go down if you work on this.
After a full day of running frisbee workshops, Itay and I filmed this trick shot video at a playground next to our last school of the day.
If you’ve ever had too many people to set up an ultimate game, then you should give World War Free a try. This game is for as few as 10 players all the way up to 150 players or more!

My life, my passion, my purpose, and my primary goal is to introduce frisbee to as many people (mainly kids) as possible and to challenge them to Get Unplugg’d. My slogan is “Let the Wind Guide You“.

To date, I’ve spoken in more than 200 schools and taught frisbee to more than 50,000 kids. I have also traveled all over the world and interviewed many hall of fame frisbee players. With your help, I can continue to do more.
If we were to ask a kid to come up a list of their heroes from the pro sports leagues, they might say something similar to the following: NHL – Sydney Crosby; NFL – Peyton Manning; NBA – Lebron James; MLB – Mike Trout. Why are each of these players considered heroes to the kids? The reality is that 99% of kids will never get to meet any of these players and if they do, it will be an autograph and a photo to remember their meeting. Is that really what a hero represents though?
