Zen Throwing Routine Video

The Zen Throwing Routine, developed by Ben Wiggins, is a combination of a group of exercises that he found to help develop his own balance and versatility in throwing. He was inspired to put this into a cohesive form as a partner-slash-alternative to Lou Burruss’ Kung Fu Throwing, which is a very effective plan with very different goals.

Learning to Throw From Others

Over the years, there have been numerous instructional videos produced – some good and some bad. On Facebook a few days ago, I shared a post that said “just because you are a good player does not mean you can teach“. I was referring to a few people because I think there is a real issue and a real concern with people who teach others to throw the wrong way. Learning to throw the wrong way is inefficient and can cause injuries if that player practices a lot throwing the wrong way.

Frisbee Skills Wins Games*

*Having good fitness will help but ultimately frisbee skills are more important

Far too often, I read about players spending all of their time in the gym and barely any on the field spent practicing. I don’t mean being at practice with your team. I mean going out on your own (or with a partner) practicing throwing and catching. Throwing and catching are a huge part of the game. If you are the fastest player on your team but you can’t throw or catch, then you won’t be very useful.
