Knife Throwing: No Spin / Flip Technique (With Video)
No Spin /Flip knife throwing is an alternative throwing style. The principal difference between this style and standard knife throwing is that the knives are thrown so that they fly straight into the target with no rotation, or flipping. The knife fly’s straight like an arrow. This is accomplished by a throw that resembles a shot put accompanied by a slight downward flick of the wrist as the knife is released, in order to cancel out momentum accumulated in accelerating the knife. This style is considered more difficult than standard knife throwing, but I completely disagree, It has a huge advantage you do not need to gauge the distance to the target. In my opinion it is more useful for defense and hunting . I have tried this style with a pocket knife to a machete and it works fine with them all. I would only throw my field knife in the gravest extreme. But I am addicted to this new sport.
