Heave H.O.E.: Basic Instructions for All Disc Students .
Grade 4 and Up-
Craig Sward and Doug Quam have put togther a short video displaying the
basics to enjoy a flying disc, such as the Frisbee. They demonstrate
the basic backhand and forehand and the move known as "skipping,"in which
the disc touches down on its edge halfway through its flight. In each
case, they show the proper stance, hand position, and arm movement. The
video features expert adults as well as youngsters who are apparently just
learning. One of the most useful features is the use of freeze-frame to show
the exact position of the hand and arm. It is also extremely helpful to
see examples of incorrect stance and movement. Following the instruction
of basic moves, there is a brief section on some of the drills and games
that can be played with the disc. The final section of the video is a promotion
for a national tournament that Sward and Quam are hoping to sponsor. H.O.E.
stands for "Heaven on Earth." To Quam and Sward, the term represents both
the resemblance of the flying disc to a galaxy, and the philosophical concept
of the peaceful mindset attained by playing with the disc. The creators
are clearly sincere and the instruction is useful for beginners, for adults
teaching children, and even for people with some Frisbee-playing experience
