Backhand is a throwing technique where the player holds the disc with their thumb on the underside and their fingers on the top of the disc, and then throws the disc with their arm swinging from behind their body towards the target.


Forehand is a throwing technique in disc golf where the disc is released with the palm of the throwing hand facing forward, toward the target. This throwing technique is also known as a “sidearm” throw, as the arm is held out to the side during the throwing motion.
