Kung Fu Throwing Video Tutorial

Kung Fu Throwing is a system developed by Lou Burruss and Mike Caldwell in 2005. He wanted to come up with a structured throwing plan to help developing throwers. As the only two Seattle Sockeye players who lived on Capitol Hill at the time, Mike and Lou would meet often to throw. Lou solicited Mike to help him with this and to their surprise they found that it was an excellent system for established throwers. (They were in their 7th and 9th years on Sockeye.) They did KFT once a week the entire season and Lou’s throws were more consistently on than any other year.

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.
