Default DiscGolfers relativity to ninjitsu

So,for the last two weeks, i've been taking a buddy out to golf who is new to the game. We've been working on grip and form. I gave him a teebird, a leopard, a firm magnet to get started with. He's not having much luck with the teebird so far, but the leopard seems to be working well for his currently low speed throws. Anyway, today i was emphasizing wrist location and releasing and all of the sudden doug gets it..and he whips the leopard like230' it does a pretty gradual s curve(slow throw speed) and lands right on the turn of the dogleg. He looks at me all stoked and is like "Dude, its just like throwing a ninja star". I was all "lol, whatever works for ya mang". But then he just kept crushin consistently, not bombin **** but just accurately droppin drives where they need to be. It was great. Pretty sure I got him hooked

He just kept telling me it was like throwing a ninja star, it was crackin me up. I guess its kinda true, just never made the correlation. I've known the guy for awhile and I'm almost 100% sure he's not a ninja anymore

I have been thinking about this since I read it yesterday. I have so much trouble getting snap, I can't wait to go hucl some ninja stars.

So now we have proof that ninja are better than pirates. Ninjas are awesome at disc golf.

The guy obviously wasn't a ninja because he said "Dude". No ninja, with the exception of turtles that have mutated as the result of being exposed to nuclear ooze, has ever said dude.

Have you ever heard of someone saying how their pirate skills have improved their DG game? no.

I beg to differ. I play much better after I toss back a few grogs.
