Some talk about Kyle Berkshire Monster Walk, and throwing/heaving the swing/pump forward before the backswing and throwing into the backswing away from target.

Swing don't Pull. You should get pulled by the swing. The "elbow is always forward" unless you let your upper arm/shoulder collapse. The arm may start dropping before the plant as long as there is no effort before.

This is difference between a lot of ams and pros going toe to heel:



This idea of swinging instead of pulling is really hard to get a feel for, especially if you have built up muscle memory to pull really hard across your chest like a lot of people have. Best way to fix it is to put away the discs and just throw a hammer for days/weeks/months, however long it takes. Hammer claw will punish you and your torso if you try to pull it really hard across your chest lol

Something that stood out to me was the melodic nature of how Dr. Kwon was saying "shift" and "turn". Might help thinking that way in the disc golf throw.

Thanks for that video, found some stuff that I think is useful.

1) The part where he says if you don't turn your shoulders enough, then the arms will reach back too much. Seems like this would apply to the reach back for disc golf in the same way?

2) That last part at the very end where he explains pushing the ground vs turning the hips seemed like an ah-ha moment for me. When I tried this pushing instead of turning it made more sense to me.

I very much agree with the cadence of "step->turn->step->turn". A very, very common problem is the "step+turn -> step+turn" cadence. It ruins the whip by moving everything at the same time. This is why sometimes I don't like using the term swing (especially the idea of swinging from a position with the arm behind you) because it can easily be interpreted as the latter cadence, by someone that doesn't know. But then there are different ways of throwing (although with the same sort of timing and energy transfer). People like Emerson Keith or Scott Stokely swing from behind them with sort of a bent arm, while the likes of Anthony Barela, McBeth and Jordan Castro use the whip reachback "in->out-in-out" whip motion. But this is probably the topic of another thread entirely

Anyway, I tried to address this in a post last year, if something clicked in that video, maybe it's worth a read: https://www.dgcoursereview.com/forum...3&postcount=10

Interesting to see Dr. Kwon teach a group to do the Elephant walk and Shift and turn. I know I can see myself in the group thinking I know how it's done but still getting it wrong.
It takes lots of practice but is fundamental.

Skip to 1:35 to get to the teaching.
