Throwing Terminology:

Backhand – This is the traditional frisbee throwing style, in which the disc is rapidly drawn from across the front of the body, and released towards a forward aimpoint. Due to the potential snap available with this technique, one can expect greater distance and accuracy than with its counterpart. It is important to initiate momentum from the feet and allow it to travel up the body, hips and shoulders, culminating in the transfer of energy to the disc.

Forehand (Sidearm) –  Similar to a sidearm throw in baseball or a forehand tennis stroke.  The throw is performed by drawing the disc from behind and partially across the front of the body. 

Hatchet (Tomahawk) – Gripped similar to the sidearm toss but thrown with an overhand motion.  The disc orientation nearly perpendicular to the ground over much of the flight.

Roller – Thrown either backhand or forehand, the disc will predominately be in contact with the ground. The disc remains in motion while travelling on its edge, rolling like a wheel

Hyzer– Throws accentuating the natural fall direction of the disc, but   For a right-handed, back-hand thrower (RHBH), the disc will naturally fall to the left. For a right-handed fore-hand thrower (RHFH), the disc will naturally fall to the right. For a left-handed, back-hand thrower (LHBH), the disc will naturally fall to the right. For a left-handed, fore-hand thrower (LHFH), the disc will naturally fall to the left.

Anhyzer – The opposite of a Hyzer, this throw is released at an angle to produce flight pattern that is opposite the normal curve of the disc.
