Throwing Stars

  • Martial arts dream

    I had a dream last night that Bruce Lee was teaching me how to throw ninja stars! How exciting would that be to be trained by the awesome Lee!

  • Throwing Star Beginner Technique

    Know how to throw ninja stars? The technique can be a little tough at first, but practice, practice, practice.  There are two common ways to throw a ninja star: horizontally, like a frisbee, or vertically, like a baseball, which is also the easiest and the one we will be discussing. Hold a star between your thumb and index finger, using only the tips of the fingers or hold it in a similar fashion, but extend the index finger and have it run along the side of the star.  Depending on the shape and size, you might want to grip it closer or farther from the center.   Whatever type of throwing star you may have in your hand, try to get a feel for yourself with which type of grip is more comfortable. The starting position is the star raised a bit above your head. If you are holding the star with your right arm, stand with your left leg forward, and vice versa. Bend your knees slightly, and relax. You are going to be swinging your arm and wrist downwards for the throw, and it is very important when you do, you are holding the ninja star vertically. The throwing motion is extending your arm forward and downward from the position above your head. When you release, your arm should be straight out in front of you. When your arm is swinging down, your wrist should be cocked back a bit, and when you are just about to straighten your arm, flick your wrist downards as fast as you can and release the star so that it flies on target in the trajectory you want it to. Shift your weight to your front leg as you throw; your weight should be on your back leg when you start. You do not need to follow through with your arm after release.
