-- See Dave Dunipace execute a perfect forehand throw from a bird's-eye view.
-- Watch Des and Jay detail the different stances and putting styles that have put them at the top of the game.
-- Follow a group of players as they play from tee to holing out, encountering the basic rules issues that commonly come up and seeing how to deal with them.

This is the perfect video to show to new players that you are introducing to the sport. Shot at the 2006 USDGC, it follows widely used teaching principles to explain, illustrate and review each point. With material for both visual and aural learners, there is something here for everyone. Even highly experienced players can pick up on the nuances of great technique by watching "Getting the EDGE." Each chapter can be used as a stand-alone lesson, or the entire presentation can be viewed in its entirety. Bonus materials include slow motion review clips of each of the throws, as well as a music video that can be used on Channel One or other in-school or cable access broadcasts.

Pre-release reviews by educators, media personnel and top disc golfers have been nothing but positive about the material and the teaching approach.
