The disc is moving with the body. I am not pulling or torquing the disc. I am redirecting my body in a forward push
Make sense?
Makes perfect sense. Thank you. That is my complete point of the title of this thread: OAT is an acronym for Off-Axis Torque, but it means something quite different than off-axis torque.

Glad someone gets it.
