It does look awkward. SC and the group are able to use the drill to develop and maintain balance.

I did not give the feet together drill a try prior to posting the video here. I saw that video and decided to start by asking about the drill here. Thank you both for you replies and thoughts about it.
I have now given it a try a few times and my conclusion is that it makes no sense in relations to DG backhand, only because in DG backhand we want to completely get our weight off the back foot and on to the front foot and rotate on the front foot (it is mainly the rotations part that does not make sense) This drill makes that difficult and awkward. So it is not a good drill for DG.
But being able to post something like this here and get your thoughts on it is priceless, so again thank you both

OLD.

I have been working on:
1. Not swaying back in the backswing/bracing in my back leg.
2. Not raising my arm/disc too high in the backswing/door frame drill pt.2

What do you think?



Anything else I need to work on in regards to OLD?

Looking pretty good. Need to get more forward on the front leg. Battering Ram front shoulder forward. Might feel over the top to you.

OLD.

I have been working on getting more forward on the front leg (Battering Ram front shoulder forward).
This definitely felt weird to begin with like SW22 had indicated. The weight/pressure shift feels much more diagonal now and I am realising that I have probably never really shifted diagonally. This has made my shots much more consistently on the target line (not going as much to the right of the intended line). The discs are also coming out much lower and more nose down.

What do you think?

Looks pretty good. You are kind of in-between drills, I'd either like to see your rear hip stay forward to the left of the rear foot with front foot remaining weighted on ground, or make a bigger shift to the right behind the rear foot more like elephant walk with front toes up off ground.

Thank you once again SW22 for all your insight and analysis.

So how do I choose which one to go for? Is it just personal preference/feel? My aim is to master OLD and then move on to standstills (and then X-step), should that factor into my choice?

I have tried both ways slightly just in my living room and my first take is that getting my rear hip to stay forward to the left of the rear foot with my front foot remaining weighted on ground feels more natural. It feels like I need to brace better in the rear hip (better from what I have been doing) and I have found that too much sway in my hips has been an issue for me.

Do both and Open to Closed. Don't get caught up on one thing, variety should help all around.

Brilliant advice, I will get to work on these.

I have one question for you SW22:
Between OLD, Open to Closed, Elephant Walk, Standstills and X-step. Are the upper body mechanics (above the waist) pretty much always the same?
